Interesting video, but it does not mention the rotational damage that the newer MIPS helmets help reduce. My life was saved by a helmet 10 years ago, but I have severe damage from the rotational damage. In short, my brain rotated inside my skull and broke nerves that connected my eyes, ears, and nose to my brain. I will have a life long handicap because of the damage. The MIPS helmets are working to help stop this rotational damage and anybody that cycles today should spend the extra $20-40 for a MIPS helmet.

I'm wearing a MIPS helmet and I agree it's the way to go.

Too many people assume that the helmet that they have is good to go. New tech and the age of their helmet is something everyone should consider. A helmet that's 5 years old is compromised due to its age. Materials in the helmet degrade over time. If you want to have the best protection, buy new.

Mr, Ruddy's personal experience is all the motivation I need to start looking for a new helmet. Thanks for your comments. Walt
