Safest bike helmets
#1
someone sent me a link to research done by Virginia Tech and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: https://www.helmet.beam.vt.edu/bicycle-helmet-ratings.html

can you find your helmet on the list?

My helmets are all much older, and I didn't see any TT stuff there. I was planning on getting a POC Octal, but the price was a little steep for what I wanted to pay. I still use "hairnet" helmets for many types of riding (not in traffic though).
Take care,
Jesper

Giro Foray is on the list somewhere mid-pack, but mine is older and probably not MIPS.
