Developed using Computational Fluid Dynamics and the input of Team Liv-Plantur riders on the road, the Attacca aero road helmet has scored race wins against some of the fastest pro sprinters in the world. For competitive riders seeking an aerodynamic edge—without compromising fit, ventilation and weight—Attacca helps you reach the top step of the podium. 

Features

  • Built for pure competitive advantage where the smallest gain in aerodynamics is necessary
  • Offers super low aerodynamic drag over a variety of rider positions
  • Maximum ventilation with Direct Flow Cooling guiding airflow into ultra-deep internal channels
  • Elements Strap System (ESS) combines CINCH Pro dial fit system with no-adjustment-needed Optimal Position Y and LiteForm™ webbing creating secure fit with simple adjustment
  • Maximum head protection in both low and high speed falls

Highlights

Developed using both wind tunnel data and the input from the professional riders of Team Liv-Plantur, the Attacca aero road helmet has scored race wins against some of the fastest sprinters in the world. This aero helmet hits the sweet spot between wind-slicing speed and cooling ventilation, so you get the best of both worlds.

BRAIN PROTECTION SYSTEM

BRAIN PROTECTION SYSTEM Image

MIPS, which stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, is a patented brain protection system designed to reduce rotational motion from angled impacts that can cause strain in the brain.

MIPS mimics the brain’s own protection system inside the skull by adding a low-friction layer between the head and helmet. A helmet with MIPS can absorb more rotational motion from an angled impact.

STRAIN IN THE BRAIN

STRAIN IN THE BRAIN Image

MIPS was developed by some of the world’s leading researchers in biomechanics and neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Strain level images from lab tests where two identical helmets, one with MIPS and one without, tested at the same speed show a clear difference. The red that appears in the image below indicates more strain in the brain. A helmet with MIPS reduces the rotational motion transmitted to the brain.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FALL?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FALL? Image

When you fall off your bike, rarely will you hit your head directly on top of your helmet. Generally, when your head impacts the ground it does so at an angle. When this happens, rotational motion occurs to the brain which could cause injury. Luckily, there is a membrane inside your skull that the brain slides along to reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain. MIPS uses a low-friction layer between the head and helmet similar to the membrane inside your skull, which in experimental and numerical tests has shown a reduction of rotational motion to the brain.

COMMITMENT TO SAFETY

COMMITMENT TO SAFETY Image

Since 1996, research and tests have been performed to compare a helmet with MIPS to a conventional helmet. The results have shown it is possible to reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain by adding the MIPS.

At Liv, we are committed to providing cutting edge technologies and integration of enhanced protection with partners like MIPS. When you are zooming down a mountain pass, navigating technical off-road terrain or negotiating city traffic, you should be able to pedal in confidence knowing your helmet has you covered. Liv helmets with MIPS will never interfere with our helmet’s comfort or design, so there are no sacrifices when it comes to style.
