Helmets for 2015


We have posted our Helmets for 2015 review at helmets.org. Highlights:

  • MIPS models are proliferating at a rapid rate, boosted by Bell's acquisition of a big chunk of the patent-holding MIPS company. We still regard MIPS as unproven technology.

  • New liner materials are beginning to filter into the helmet market.

  • Almost every manufacturer has a round smooth urban model.

  • The trend toward compact road models continues, but there are still some new elongated ones with points in the rear.

  • Prices are stable this year, with some increase in the high end models.
