I need to buy a new helmet as my current helmet is at least 7 years old now and its pretty broken. I wanted something safe, and I've been using Bell helmets for forever, so just sticking with the brand.
Both of these are MIPS helmets. I wanted the Stratus because it has a 5 star safety rating from IIHS:
The only two questions I have are:
- Are they both the same helmet except one has a visor? In the pictures both look to be pretty much the exact same. However the weight difference is 45 grams, which seems a bit high for just one visor added on.
- I do both trail biking and road biking (although the trails I bike on aren't too extreme. So would a road helmet or a XC helmet be more useful?
