Oakley Mod 5 MIPS Helmet

Obsessively refined for your skiing and riding pleasure, the Oakley Mod 5 MIPS Helmet spares no detail when it comes to functional protection, low-profile style, and lightweight comfort. The Mod 5's defining feature is the Modular Brim System, which offers the ability to swap between small and large brims for a flush fit with your favorite goggles. Not only does this eliminate the dreaded "gaper gap," but more importantly, it seamlessly channels hot air through the integrated goggle/helmet ventilation system to prevent condensation from obscuring your vision. Oakley aimed to reduce as much weight as possible in the design of the Mod 5, but without sacrificing protection for skiers and riders putting it all on the line. The answer to these seemingly contradictory concepts is a hybrid shell construction, complete with ABS thermoplastic along the front and an In-mold EPS shell in the rear. The ABS shell increases protection where it's needed most by strategically reinforcing high-impact zones along the temples and top of the head. This particular version sports an elastomeric MIPS liner for extra protection in the case of an angular impact on the mountain. This system aims to reduce the rotational velocity exerted on the brain by creating a slip plane inside the helmet, allowing the helmet to rotate independently for increased impact dispersion. MIPS is quickly becoming a staple in helmet technology, considering that most falls don't occur head-on, instead happening off-balance. Not content on being merely a protective piece, the Mod 5 is stunningly stylish and super comfortable when you're riding for hours at a time. The adjustable venting system is easy to fine-tune, even when you're rocking gloves or mittens. 270o Boa fit adjustment precisely tightens to your head with its quick-turn dial, resulting in a secure fit without pressure points. Pressure-free, removable ear pads allow for customizable comfort, depending on the riding season and conditions outside. R...

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
