STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (February 17, 2020) — MIPS, the Swedish brain safety technology company leading the way in helmet-based brain safety, announces a reinforced partnership with Bollé, a 132-year-old brand leader in cycling helmets, ski goggles, and ski helmets. Bollé has committed 100 percent to incorporating MIPS technology in every ski and cycling Bollé helmet model starting in 2020.

MIPS and Bollé have been close partners for years, but this announcement marks the most significant agreement both brands have made in pursuit of safer helmet technology. Both brands are committed to offering best-in-class protection based on rigorous innovation and over 20 years of brain safety research to as many consumers as possible.

“What gets everyone at MIPS up in the morning every day is a devotion to making every helmet safer. It’s the primary reason MIPS was founded,” said Max Strandwitz, CEO of MIPS AB. “So, naturally we are thrilled when brands like Bollé commit to making all their helmets safer using MIPS technology. It’s a win-win for everyone: MIPS, Bollé, and most importantly, consumers across the globe.”

MIPS recently released its 2019 Year-End Report, citing 25 new partner brands and 135 new helmet models in 2019, bringing the grand total of MIPS partner brands to 103 and MIPS-integrated helmets to 583. Additionally, in 2019, two other major cycling brands, Specialized and Nutcase Helmets, made all-in commitments to incorporating MIPS technology into their entire helmet model line.
