    New Helmet For My Wife

    Looking for suggestions for women's MTB helmets. I see Fox and Specialized make women's specific helmets, but wondering about company's like TLD, POC and a few others. I don't see any women's specific listed on their websites.

    2018 Orange Alpine 6 Custom
    2017 Knolly Warden Custom

    Size is what matters, beyond that there's nothing special about a women's helmet that makes it a women's, besides color.

    I like Smith koryd designs, they claim to have better protection for small / medium hits. But they don't have MIPS plus Koryd to my knowledge.

    A POC or other brand with MIPS will offer great protection.

    Smith Forefront is my favorite, and it has mips and koroyd, most of their high end helmets actually do have mips and koroyd.

    it's an expensive helmet so google some of the last year's deals around, the helmet hasn't changed from what I can tell other than color.

    I created a thread for this in the Womens forum, and I have updated it the last two times my wife needed a helmet. I am about to update it again, I am helping select a helmet for a young girl rider who has just suffered a concussion in a bike race (not her fault, uncool fast guy clipped her bars while passing)
