Leatt DBX Carbon Helmet - Eurobike 2014
I'm sorry tuumbaq but it's absolutely true that motorbike helmets are not as safe than mtb helmet.. for mtb purpose. I've had a few concussions in the past so I am now very concerned by the subject. I've read many articles, studies and opinions about this. I am a mechanical engineer I have a very good understanding of movements, impacts, damping and so on.. and there is now absolutely no doubt in my mind that motorbikes helmet are bad idea for mtb. To make long story short, motorbikes helmet need much harder shells in case of these 100kph + crashes (This is required by the law, via DOT standards)... which doesn't occur in mtb.. even for the fastest world cup athletes. A helmet is a shock absorber, you need proper stiffness for the purpose it is intended to.. Think of your shock on you bike... If shock is too stiff.. not going to absorb bumps properly, if shock too soft, going to bottom out. That's the same story with your helmet.

Apparently there was too much damage from winter to be fixed.. the wole middle section is closed for the season. You have to go on La Chômeuse instead, or L'inuk.

Minaar has always been my favorite rider to watch on the WC circuit. I think that most of its videos don't give him justice... but this one, wow I wish it was longer!
