Ridden And Rated - Six Helmets
The Ambush Comp, a lower cost version, was recently released in 4 sizes (SM, MD, LG & XL). The new size being the LG. The new LG size is the one you need as it is smaller than the old LG (now called XL).

UCI to Host Steve Smith Memorial Run at Fort William
@brockfisher05: Hey Red Bull is a very good company and sponsor. When Shane McConkey died, the first Red Bull athlete in North America, Red Bull decided to continue paying his salary to his wife and child until their child turned 18 years old. Find me ANY company or sponsor that would do that.

POC Tectal Helmet - Review
@saturnine: I think you meant to say "anecdotal evidence is not 'conclusive' evidence"

POC Tectal Helmet - Review
@enduroFactory: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23770518 I found this link on the page that you sent me to... This article is not about MIPS in particular but a completely different technology and... "In conclusion, these results demonstrated that AIM technology could effectively improve impact mitigation compared to a contemporary expanded polystyrene-based bicycle helmet, and may enhance prevention of bicycle-related TBI. Further research is required." Hmmm... sounds like they are still trying to figure it out. Please keep looking and when you find an article that does not involve the founder of MIPS of his friends. Let me know. Thanks.

POC Tectal Helmet - Review
@TheOriginalTwoTone: One of the limitations of the MIPS system is that when an significant impact occurs the plastic "slip plane" of the MIPS system can become embedded into the EPS and then it no longer moves as the design intended. Another limitation of the MIPS system is that it is not effective at all locations of the helmet particularly in the lower areas of the helmet. When impacted near the crown it seems to have a consistent reduction of rotational forces but at any other location it does not. In some instances, a helmet with MIPS has higher rotational forces than the same model without, it is very location dependent. This information comes from testing that I witnessed at an independent 3rd party test lab.

POC Tectal Helmet - Review
@kirchenschlager: MIPS is now partially owned by Bell/Giro. If POC puts MIPS into a helmet they give money to Bell/Giro for every helmet they sell with MIPS. Also we are still waiting, maybe indefinitely, for a independent 3rd party to show that the MIPS system actually makes an improvement in protecting the brain. So far, not empirical evidence exists.
