Bike helmet for urban use: KED Mitro UE-1 with MIPS, BOA and LED light


As an answer to the increased safety requirements of e-bikers, especially in urban environments, KED presents the new Mitro UE-1 bicycle helmet. In addition to a pleasantly minimalist design, the helmet is particularly convincing with its inner values. Thus, for the first time two of the leading system components — the MIPS Brain Protection System and the BOA adaptation system – have been functionally combined.

If the two abbreviations don’t really mean anything to you: MIPS is a system designed to protect against the effects of forces from different directions on impact. For this purpose, a flexible inner shell is fitted inside the helmet, which is intended to absorb the force influences between the head and the helmet. BOA, in turn, is a fastening system with which the helmet can be easily tightened by means of a strap and knob.

In addition to all the hidden safety features, the most eye-catching visual highlight is certainly the LED tail light on the back of the helmet, which is supposed to provide an extremely bright 180° visibility. This can be switched between continuous light and flashing function and draws its power from an integrated battery, which can be charged via USB.

The ventilation of the Mitro UE-1 has been developed to meet the requirements of everyday commuters. A system of internal air channels provides a pleasantly balanced ventilation of the entire head area for maximum wearing comfort. Finally, the fidlock magnetic lock should also be mentioned: an innovative magnetic lock that convinces with its simple operation.

In addition to the minimalist black variants and the eye-catching “Neon Green”, the KED Mitro UE-1 is also available in the combinations blue/grey and white/blue. The price is around 150 euros, with the sizes M (for 52-58 cm head circumference, 350 g) and L (for 58-61 cm head circumference, 370 g) available.
