MIPS Brain Protection System
Rotational motion can cause brain injuries. The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10-15 mm in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact.

Amazing helmet. I have one for myself and for each of my boys.
I had to contact the manufacturer directly to get one of these in a Large w/ MIPs b/c at the time none were available. It is true that the visor fades, but that is to be expected. After having a cycling wreck head injury more than two years ago now, I wanted to make sure I found a helmet that fit properly and had the best technology in it. I think I was sent the wrong pad insert for it, but I still love it (the purpose of the additional black pad would seem to be to protect your hair from the MIPS plastic). I do wish they made replaceable liners (w/ or w/out visors) like for the other helmets. I also have the Allstone which does have replacement parts available. I feel the fit is similar, and I feel better knowing the Union has MIPS.
I was super excited to finally get a helmet to go riding and had done a lot of research into getting a well-rated, MIPS helmet and landed on the Bern Union in champagne. I just unboxed it and unfortunately the color rendering on the website is misleading; it looks silver or 'white gold' at best. Sorry Bern, you lost me on this one and I'll be returning :(
Hi Morgan, Sorry to hear that your helmet purchase didn't work out. We appreciate the feedback. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an additional question/comments/concerns. If you'd like to try out one of our other colors we'd love to help you out!
As Rory says, love the helmet but as it gets used the visor liner will fade, discolor, and tear. Contacted Bern to see if a visor liner replacement exists and got a “no, sorry.” Definitely get a different model that does have a replacement option.
I've been using this for the last year as my daily helmet and it has been quite comfortable. The add-on light has also been quite useful, although the battery life may not last on longer rides at colder temperatures. Fortunately, the light goes into flash mode automatically when the battery is low. The only issue is the visor. You can expect to have the visor fade, get sweat stained and rip apart along the seams. At this time, replacements are unavailable, so I'd go with a different model.
