First Look: 2014 Scott Stego and Mythic Enduro/All-Mountain Helmets

<b>Introducing the Scott Stego and Mythic helmets. Both are geared toward riders who are really getting after it in enduro races and all-mountain rides.</b>

<b>Scott and MIPS have expanded their collaboration for 2014 with the Stego. MIPS is also available in the Lin and Taal helmets.</b>

<b>Scott rep and super pinner Ryan Condrashoff let's 'er rip in the Stego down one of the hairier trails in Deer Valley, Utah.</b>

<b>The MIPS system is meant to protect against angled impacts, which are most common in cycling according to studies on head injuries.</b>

<b>The yellow low friction layer can rotate up to 15mm in any direction, and adds just 20-25 grams to the weight of the helmet.</b>

<b>MIPS is meant to imitate your brain's natural safety functionality, and is cleanly integrated into the EPS shell.</b>

<b>Just like how your brain can twist inside the skull because of spinal fluid, the low friction layer allows the helmet to pivot while still remaining secure.</b>

<b>Condro slashing some steep turns with just 380 grams on his dome.</b>

<b>The Mythic offers the same styling and nearly identical features in a traditional non-MIPS package.</b>

<b>Large vents and deep internal cooling channels ensure the lids will ventilate well. They also feature two brow vents to keep your forehead cool.</b>

<b>Green or black for the Stego. What's your flavor?</b>

<b>The Mythic will come in orange, blue, black, white. Looking good!</b>

<b>Both helmets feature Scott's easy to adjust MRAS II Fit System with three height settings.</b>

<b>Sunglass or goggles, Scott has you covered.</b>

<b>SO ENDURO</b>

<b>The adjustable visor up front gives a few degrees of motion, which should help prevent damage in case of a fall.</b>

<b>The visor can also be removed if that's your thing.</b>

<b>A nice, wide, flat area on top allows you to easily mount helmet cams or lights for night riding.</b>

With trail, all-mountain, and enduro bikes becoming more and more suited to silly fast speeds and feats of awesome, Scott Sports worked with a Swiss University to identify most vulnerable areas the head, then designed two helmets to protect those critical areas as best as possible.
