Helmet technology is changing, we are starting to see motorcycle helmets with a slip plane know as Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS).
Neurosurgeon know that they still get patients with brain injuries even when they had been wearing a motorcycle helmet at the time of their accident. Greg Shapleigh decided to change helmet design, because current helmets aren’t doing enough. Greg’s research resulted in a slip plane that allows the head to rotate in any direction by 10-15mm. This reduces the forces that are transferred to the brain by up to 40%.
The uptake of MIPS by motorcycle helmet manufactures has been slow. Here’s a link to the best motorcycle helmets.

Like most safety technology it takes time for it to be widely adopted, but pro riders are starting to request it.
