We should not have to pay an arm and a leg to protect our heads. With the Scott Taal Helmet, you can have a slick-looking, supremely efficient helmet for whatever type of riding you like to do, but you don’t have to worry about taking a hit in the bank account to buy it.
Once you have heard about the Mips Brain Protection System, you’ll wonder why you’d ever buy a helmet without it. That’s because it has been developed by studying just what happens when a rider suffers a fast moving accident where the head takes the brunt of the impact. Most helmets are designed for straight-on impacts, not taking into account that most of the time, a cyclist will be hitting the ground at an angle with velocity. The Mips is a low friction liner inside the helmet that has been designed to allow the head to rotate relative to the helmet’s angle impact. By absorbing the violent rotational energy of the impact, the Mips helmets will reduce the shock transmitted to your brain. It’s a super scary thought, but we have to anticipate these things and be prepared to mitigate any potential damage as a result. To enhance the Lin’s effectiveness, whether you are crashing head-on or at an angle, Scott makes use again of their In Mold technology. With this method, the PC Microshell and the helmet’s EPS liner are fused together to keep it light but still extremely impact resistance. In this way, the Lin has received the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stamp of approval.
The Scott Taal comes in one size that can accommodate heads ranging between 21.25 to 24 inches, or pretty much most heads, by using their clever RAS Fit System. The rotary adjustment that the RAS system provides is easy to operate either on the bike or off. You’ll be able to dial-in your favorite fit every ride. And you’ll appreciate the interior netting that will keep bees and wasps from grabbing a free ride while you are out enjoying the warm weather.
The Scott Taal Helmet will give you both form and function with its slick design combined with the best protective technology available in the helmet market. Now you can just get out and ride, secure in the knowledge that you have protected yourself against unforeseen accidents.
