A few letters can make all the difference. Answer has brought the W and E back to its name after a few seasons running under the name ANSR. Also, it has brought MIPS technology to its budget-friendly AR-5 helmet. MIPS stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, and many of today’s high-end helmets have it. How does it work? By adding a low-friction layer between the helmet and head, MIPS helps to reduce rotational forces on the brain that can occur during angled impacts.
Answer marries MIPS technology to a lightweight, premium, fiberglass helmet to provide first-rate protection at just $299.95. The dual-density EPS liner offers superior impact absorption as well. A refined interior features Coolmax™ technology that aids in evaporative cooling, and removable/washable cheek pads and helmet liner combine with multiple intake and exhaust ports to keep you fresh and cool. This helmet meets or exceeds ECE 22.05 and is DOT certified .
We repeat, the cost is just $299.95. Go to answerracing.com (using the full complement of Es and Ws) to get more info.
