Yes, helmet designs are aesthetically better than ever. But let us not forget the primary purpose of a helmet is cranial protection.  As such, one of the biggest innovations in modern helmets is the incorporation of rotational impact technologies. Whether it's MIPS or SPIN, these new helmets have proven to greatly reduce forces on the brain in the event of an oblique impact through the use of a low friction layer (a liner for MIPS, sheering pads for SPIN) that moves relative to your head during the impact.
