Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
How this article descends into the philosophical really will long shock me. Hopefully I'll not be to piston off by this.

Fastest Woman in the World - Interbike 2017
At high speeds, the centripetal force on the larger wheels will cause them to fling apart.

This is to please the adult buying it, not the kid.

Inside MIPS - Advancing Helmet Safety
@mcmaduske: Concussion and broken ribs?! Pain! I feel for you. Rest well and heal good. I am looking into 6D. It seems like it'd give better protection from linear impacts since the suspension system is like small compressible shock absorbers.

Take a Tour of SRAM's Mother Ship - Val di Sole World Cup 2017
@loaded: saying "Made in Taiwan" doesn't make me racist. I rather like that fact. Many high-end products are made there. Not just bike parts. Taiwan is an awesome country and I've visited there many times.

Inside MIPS - Advancing Helmet Safety
@NeilsElbek: Yes, I agree. I'm still glad I chose to wear MIPS. Safe riding to you.

Inside MIPS - Advancing Helmet Safety
@SoCalMTBiker: Heal well and take care in the future. Head injury is terrible. It changed the way I moved for years after my first bad injury. We bikers really need industry support in this. I'm glad Pink bike has made more articles about the importance of being protected.

Inside MIPS - Advancing Helmet Safety
@drgnarswag: yes, your point supports what I'm trying to convey. Even if MIPS works to reduce deceleration and force, It is not enough protection. In real life use, it did not protect me enough. The door is still wide open to the risk of concussion--MIPS or not. Just don't buy a MIPS helmet thinking there's significant protection against concussion. That would be a false sense of security. I am a real life tester.

Inside MIPS - Advancing Helmet Safety
If MIPS is the best we have, I'll take it. As it is though, it's not enough. We'll still get concussions with it. I did. Riders would benefit from more budget by companies devoted to development and innovation. Push technology for the protection of riders. I love this sport & don't want to abandon it yet I don't want to suffer another concussion. The impact testing on that video is questionable because in a real life scenario the skull is attached to a lot of weight (neck, torso, etc.) which can act like a momentum lever to smash a skull downward. Even with reduction of force claimed by MIPS even reduce the forces below an acceptable threshold? It's like either get blown up by a hand grenade or get blown up by a nuclear warhead. There's a lower force in the grenade but in the end it's all the same.
