Need a new helmet this year. Want to buy something that won't seem obsolete in a year. There are several new technologies for helmets: MIPS and the soft shells each claiming advantages.
I'm not a park rat and don't expect to bang my head regularly :-0 ... so, MIPS seems like the way to go,
But there are limited choices in brands/styles with and even more limited supplies. From what I can tell online, POC, Scott and Rossignol are the only available in the US. and POC seems to be out of stock on their own site.
Also, oval shaped head means I'd rather try before buying.
Should I hold out or risk fit by purchase online of a MIPS, or does it not really matter all that much?
