The ANSR Evolve 3 helmet is a mid-priced helmet with some high-end features. Modern helmet shells have many sculptured ridges and valleys in them. Most helmets, including some very expensive brands, do not have an impact absorbing EPS liner that follows and fills in those peaks and valleys. The Evolve 3 dual-density liner does fill in those peaks and valleys and this creates improved impact absorption. Safety is key with all ANSR helmets and the Evolve 3 passes two of the toughest safety standards today. Comfort is addressed with ANSR round-oval shell shape and using top-of-the-line SilverCool wicking material in the interior. This material wicks away perspiration and dries faster than other materials, plus it is anti-microbial to help eliminate odors between washes. Shell design features great venting, a strengthened chinbar and large eye port that accommodate most goggles including "over the glasses" types.
SilverCool moisture-wicking liner is removable for washing.
SilverCool padding also reduces odor and is anti-microbial.
Nine (9) intake and exhaust vents help keep you cool.
Four (4) eyebrow vents help evaporate sweat before it drips into eyes and goggles.
Wire mesh chinbar vent has foam filter.
Flexible rubber nose / cheek piece to help deflect roost.
Meets or exceeds the ECE 22-05 safety standard.
Meets or exceeds the D.O.T. FMVSS-218 safety standard.
Weight (medium): 3.2 pounds (1450 grams).
Replacement visors available (sold separately).
MIPS is an advanced and efficient brain protection system that provides a secure environment for riders of all kinds. MIPS industry-leading technology deals with "rotational violence" which is found to be the leading cause of concussion and even more severe brain injuries. It mimics the brain's own protection system.
When the head hits the ground at an angle, the brain slides along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull, which reduces the rotational forces transmitted to the brain. The MIPS yellow Low Friction Layer (LFL) sits between the helmet's EPS and the liner. At impact there is a movement, independent of direction, between MIPS and the liner that substantially reduces the rotational force to the brain.
MIPS does not interfere with a helmet's existing safety property, performance or design, adding minimal weight and less than 1 mm in thickness. It's based on more than 15 years of R&D at the Royal Institute of Technology and The Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden.
