Product Description

The Skullerz 8974-MIPS Type 1 Safety Helmet is a Class E Safety Helmet with integrated MIPS technology designed to increase worker head protection by helping reduce the effect of dangerous angled impacts. The MIPS Elevate safety system is a low-friction layer that slides multi-directionally upon angled impact with the intention of reducing the transmission of rotational force to the head.

Like other Skullerz Safety Helmets, this MIPS helmet provides heavy-duty yet lightweight and comfortable head protection to shield the front, back, top and sides of the head from falls, dropped objects or bumping into stationary objects. The compact helmet design increases all-over impact protection and improves visibility, and a chin strap ensures the helmet remains secure to the wearer’s head upon impact or sudden movement.

MIPS Elevate Safety System Reduces Costly Effect of Angled Impacts

Unlike traditional hard hats and safety helmets which are designed primarily to protect against direct impacts, this safety helmet features MIPS technology for protection against angled impacts—a common form of impact that occurs upon falling or contact.

How does MIPS work?

MIPS Elevate is a low-friction layer designed to slide multi-directionally (10-15mm) upon certain angled impacts to help reduce rotational force to the head.

What is rotational motion and why is it harmful?

Because the brain has shear properties similar to water or gel, it it more sensitive to rotational motion than linear (direct) motion. When parts of the brain move relative to each other as a result of rotational force, the tissues can stretch—potentially leading to life-altering TBIs such as concussions.

Additional Impact Protection

The suspension and shell design of this helmet provides added side, front and back protection. This increased coverage meets side impact testing requirements of EN12492: 2012, and The safety helmet also meets standard Class E helmet requirements for ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014, CSA Z94.1-15, Type 1, Class E standard.

Compact & Breathable Design

A smaller, low-profile brim improves the wearer’s field of vision—particularly when looking up. A padded and moisture-wicking sweatband lines the sides and forehead and is removable for easy replacement. A flexible open frame with 6-point suspension improves airflow for breathable comfort, with the perforated MIPS safety system also optimizing top-of-head ventilation.

Custom, Secure Fit

This safety helmet fits hat sizes 6.5 - 8 (21" – 25"). Customize the size with the easy-to-adjust 6-point premium ratcheting suspension. Simply turn the one-handed adjustment knob to tighten or loosen the fit without having to take the helmet off. Built with weight distribution in mind, this safety helmet has a snug and balanced fit. An adjustable chin strap (included) secures the helmet to the head and ensures it does not dislodge if the worker falls or is impacted by another object.

Accessorize It

One of the biggest challenges for workers is how to attach lights to a hard hat in a way that eliminates the need to adjust and fuss with accessories. This safety helmet includes front and rear slots for secure attachment of Skullerz Hard Hat Headlamps (available as an accessory or with the 8974LED). For jobs where increased eye protection is needed, the helmet is designed for easy bolt-on mounting of the Skullerz 8991 Safety Helmet Visor (available as an accessory). There are also side slots for other common accessories such as ear protection. To personalize even more, stamp your lid with our tenacious hard hat stickers.

Ideal for those working at heights or needing a climber’s helmet, as well as construction & utility job sites, oil & gas, road work, forestry, mining and general site work.
