Alpinestars is a household name in the motorsports world, being recognized as one of the industry leaders in protective gear for well over two decades. Their mountain bike gear has also proven to be comfortable and effective, so we're excited to see that they've finally expanded their range to include helmets with the Vector Tech MIPS Helmet. Featuring 19 openings for airy ventilation along with extended coverage around the temple and nape areas, the Vector Tech is right on par with leading enduro helmets that offer increased protection for steep trails littered with rocks and roots. The lightweight polycarbonate shell is reinforced with internal cages for added strength, and is co-molded to an EPS foam liner to cushion the force of high speed impacts. Like many premium trail helmets, the Vector Tech comes with MIPS technology for added protection against the harmful rotational impact forces that can occur in some types of crashes.
