According to Randy Swart, Director of the
Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute in Arlington, Virginia:

Helmet liners are beginning to evolve in 2017

January 7, 2017

Our review of helmets for 2017 shows that manufacturers are bringing to market new helmet liners that show promise of improving protection over the traditional EPS foam liners. Interesting developments include:
  • Smith's models with collapsible plastic modules looking like hollow straws

  • POC's honeycomb material

  • Kali's carbon nanotube material and Conehead designs with dual density impact foam in helmet liners.

  • Leatt and Kali's hourglass disks from Armourgel in their liners.
