Bontrager Ballista MIPS Road Bike Helmet

The Ballista MIPS road helmet projects racers to their target just like the ancient Greek missile weapon it was named after. Thanks to a wind tunnel-proven design and superior venting with our unique internal channeling, Ballista launches you to the front of peloton breakaways and sprint-line finishes.

MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) was developed by brain surgeons and scientist to help reduce rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.

Ballista MIPS rated as best available helmet

CPSC test standards haven’t changed in nearly 20 years. New ratings, developed through joint research by Virginia Tech and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), rely on a more realistic evaluation. A higher rating is shown to provide a reduced risk of concussion and the Ballista MIPS comes out on top as the best available helmet.
