Preview: Helmets for 2016

We have posted a preview of Helmets for 2016.

Based on more than 70 interviews at Interbike last week, we are finding no radical safety improvements coming for next year that would compel you to replace your current helmet.

Highlights for 2016 include continued expansion of MIPS models, disappearance of rear points, new energy management liners, more extended coverage models, more Enduro and trail models, high viz colors, green technology, removable chinbars, and mostly small price changes.
