Leatt DBX Carbon Helmet - Eurobike 2014
High end moto lids also have multi density foam (dual or triple), and most are designed for low as well as high speed impacts. The extra size, is because in order to be safe for many types of impact, it needs to have more ability to be compressed. Never mind that alot of mtb dh crashes occur directly into objects, rocks, trees, rather than dirt. I would like to see the raw data that shows from various impacts, how these mtb helmets perform versus motocross helmets. The mtb helmet industry is full of misleading information, such as that DOT/ECE/Snell helmets are for highway speed impacts. That is totally false . Do some quick research and you can easily find test data ( in G-Force delivered to the head inside the helmet) from first and second impact testing for all moto lids . Where is the data for the mtb standards ? It is simple physics , less material to absorb impact equals more force transmitted to your brain. The new technology helps , MIPS in particular , but you cant cheat the pure physics . There is a point where the lighter weight is a bad tradeoff , even if you consider the rotational force of a heavier lid . Bicycle helmet industry has done very little meaningfull research versus road helmet manufacturing, that will change as the sport grows and concussions add up.
