Giro WTF... why oh why!! you make some great lids but that thing looks like Spanish Franco era State Police standard issue( Fascists for locking up Catalan Democrats) ... and them making peace loving Ratboy wear one!

POC and MIPS Announce New Partnership (Again)
The fact is that whilst reducing rotational forces impacting on the brain is a good thing and kudos to MIPS for being the brand that brought this to everyones attention - but that's all they've done ... there is no credible evidence that it works ...check out the Snell report on MIPS - BASICALLY IT DOES NOTHING! - MIPS is only tested on crash test dummies .. it's not tested on human heads... human heads have an inbuilt system way better than MIPS that doesn't make your helmet uncomfortable to wear -SKIN.. it does exactly what MIPS does without any downside. MIPS is a great marketing machine - that's it! It sells on the myth that it will help in a crash...it's hard to push back against a perceived and I STRESS PERCEIVED safety benefit but we should -as MIPS is only about one thing corporate profit.

First Look: IXS Trigger FF - The World's Lightest Full Face MTB Helmet
@iantmcg: what are these advantages, could be weaknesses too.

First Look: IXS Trigger FF - The World's Lightest Full Face MTB Helmet
@Endurossta: How do you figure that an xc helmet with a chin bar can offer same safety as a hard shell full face - it's insane?! I have a good friend who's a numero surgeon he said hard shell all the way for gravity. Also said MIPS was just great marketing- nothing more - he concurred that it only does what your scalp already does- all these lemming are taken in by the marketing- the testing is done on crash test dummies ... which don't have scalps.. so the results are good !

Hit a tree hard in these style of helmets and there's only one winner, it's an xc helmet with a chin bar not a light weight gravity helmet. Brands are misleading the public.

MIPS Acquires Fluid Inside Rotational Impact Company For $3.3 Million
@zyoungson: Fluid INSIDE SOLUTION - makes sense - MIPS unfortunately is marketing based - genius but genius marketing not science... why did POC drop it? Why did fox use Fluid inside instead...because it works great on a crash test dummy but not in real live situations - see my reply to sdurant12 above for helmets.org/snell comments on effectiveness of MIPS.

MIPS Acquires Fluid Inside Rotational Impact Company For $3.3 Million
@sdurant12: Yep Helmets.org/snell - Snell Foundation testing shows no improvement Snell testing reveals no performance gain with MIPS In 2018 the Snell Foundation's Bill Muzzy presented to ASTM's F08.53 subcommittee the results of Snell testing of MIPS performance using a linear impactor and offset (oblique) impacts. Snell tested a MIPS and non-MIPS version of the same Specialized helmet. Their results with full details will be published in a journal soon. Snell dropped their 5kg guided impactor onto a helmeted Hybrid III headform and neck, impacting the helmet sides to achieve an oblique transmission of energy. The MIPS layer activated and moved. They used both flat and hemispheric impactors, and measured both linear and rotational acceleration. They hit each location twice. Helmet straps were tight. They chose the locations based on a Harborview study of the most likely impact locations on bicycle helmets. Snell's data showed no significant improvement in the MIPS helmet's performance over the non-MIPS model. In some cases the non-MIPS model performed better.

They purchased Fluid inside because unlike MIPS it looks like it makes sense, there is not one shred of credible evidence that suggests that MIPS works. Speak to any expert on the matter and they say skin does the job that MIPS was designed to do.. fluid inside looks more credible as it looks like it will absorb energy - This is the key to a reduction in brain injuries.

Endura's New MT500 Full Face Trail Helmet and MT500 Knee Pads - Garda Trentino 2019
Can't say I'm a big fan - they are the Kings of copy . But I agree with them on one point MIPS.. it is the biggest load of marketing bs since the Trek y frame! The good lord gave us our own split plane tech - it's called skin.
