Kali Releases Multiple Impact Helmet: The MacDuff - Interbike 2016
@dirtdiggler: I do think that the leverage of a larger helmet is a greater concern than weight. Either way, we are talking about the most sensitive and fragile part of your being. That being said, I think every single factor is significant. The larger helmet could be better for all we know. Still have to do more tests, and even those cant replicate every scenario in the real world.

@dirtdiggler: it's not about whether you notice the weight or not, it's a matter of that weight contributing to added force to your brain in a crash. It might be small, all of the factors we are discussing here are small, maybe even TINY factors, but they all add up. If we can make a 2% difference, that is very significant. I still think we are a long way away from the best solutions, but we will get there eventually, even if its 2% at a time.

@WAKIdesigns: no whining g at all. I also ride for TLD. I have questioned every company in my arguments here, including Kali. This isn't about PR, it's about asking the right questions and being open to learning. TLD makes kickass helmets and they are as sexy as they come.

I do like the break away visor feature on my Shiva, which I'm sure helps. But as Brad says, we can always do better.

It doesnt take a "giant shark fin" to pose a concern. If the 5mm LDL significantly reduces rotational impact in Nikoli's helmet, what does a rigid 12mm raised line on a TLD do? Would you use a square helmet? What worries me even more is visors. They are a massive leverage point. My maya (half shell) has a super flexible visor and I wish my Shiva did too. Havent done visor testing yet, but id love to see how much they effect rotational impacts. Have you noticed a lot of companies testing videos are without visors? I think the testing actually requires the visor to be removed (I have yet to confirm that) .

@dirtdiggler: Totally a great concept. The concern is how big it is. More leverage against your head in a rotational impact and more mass equates to more force in a crash. I actually asked them if they had compared the numbers... weight and size/leverage compared to the impact absorption and rotational slowing. Does one negate the other? Their response: " We have top pros riding our helmets, so obviously we are the best." nice one, 6D.... I wish I had received a real answer. All respect... gone.
