I have always been using road bike helmets, until I had a bike crash during a Triathlon in July.
Thanks to the helmet no head injury albeit the helmet is to be replaced.
In the bike shop I hesitated between a road helmet and an MTB one.
I opted for the road one on a price basis (really stupid rationale when one shops for protection).
I am still unsure the road one provides more protection than the MTB one even if both pass the CE certification.
In the Netherlands, I have seen roadies with MTB's helmet and the other way around.
Thus my question: what are the differences in protection between the MTB and the Road helmet ?
Thanks in advance,
