Nexus Extreme Mips
The first helmet with the Mips cradle
Our Nexus Extreme Mips helmet from Centurion goes beyond testing and job site requirements to keep your brain sharp and your way of life intact through the end of your career. Meet the world’s first industrial safety helmet utilizing the Mips Cradle (Multi-directional impact protection system).
After 20 years of meticulous research, the first Mips-enhanced helmet was released in 2007. Since then, Mips has expanded their partnerships to include some of the world’s leading consumer recreational helmet manufacturers, providing top-end head protection for motorsports, equestrian, biking, climbing, and now, industrial safety.
How it works:
Studies show that rotational and off-center impacts to the head while wearing a standard helmet or hard hat can cause the brain to bounce against the inside of the skull, leading to potentially life changing injury. That’s often what happens when a pro football player ends their career after a concussion. In a Mips-enhanced helmet, the cradle moves so that your brain doesn’t.
The key is the Mips cradle’s low-friction layer, which lets the helmet’s interior rotate up to 15mm inside the shell.
Each component plays a vital role:
- the helmet shell dissipates impact energy
- the cradle reduces shock
- the Mips low-friction layer redirects rotational forces
It’s an extra guard to protect your brain…and your way of life.
The Nexus Extreme Mips helmet ships complete with a 4-point mountaineering chinstrap and internal shell for increased impact protection.
