Limar's Etna Helmet Focuses on Comfort & Coverage - Taipei Cycle Show 2023
@pakleni: Basically not warmer at all. It still vents and breathes as good as any other AM coverage half shell I have owned. The ear pad space is genuinely unnoticeable in terms of heat. I might chose a lighter weight xc style lid on the hottest days, when I am doing more xc type riding, but its not really a decision based on heat so much as it is based on ride intentions. It's the helmet I reach for 19/20 times if not more. Its just comfortable, and I dont think about it at all after I put it on. Can still fit a wool or windproof skull cap under it in the wintertime as the pads provide just enough flexibility. Its still a half shell, but in my opinion its a Better half shell.

Limar's Etna Helmet Focuses on Comfort & Coverage - Taipei Cycle Show 2023
I have a Fox dropframe, and I love the damn thing. It basically comes down to it just being really comfortable and stable on my head. I love that it uses a pad fit to cradle your head instead of a boa style ratchet that compresses a ring around your head. Comfortable and no wobble, and because there is no wobble, it works excellent with a light mounted on top. A tiny bit more coverage than a regular half shell is hardly a bad thing, especially when it doesn't make my head any hotter, but mostly its just more comfortable and less distracting to wear in my experience.

The only bike where cable routing through the headset is acceptable... is someone else´s.

Field Test: 2022 Yeti 160E - The All-Rounder E-MTB
E-Bikes will totally allow so many new riders to get into mtn biking! We are removing the biggest barrier to entry and all kinds of new people of all interest and ability levels and will flock to the sport! Oh yeah sorry forgot to mention you may have to chose between this "not-quite-a-bike" and your next automobile. Oh yeah and its still not really clear where you can even ride these things in most parts around the world. Oh yeah and you'll probably still want to buy a regular old-fashioned meat powered mtb so you can ride it everywhere that this thing isn't allowed. None of that will be problem, will it? Wasn't this a major argument coming from manufacturers when e-bikes were beginning to hit the market? Isn't it still? These things are just getting ridiculous in several ways. Do they really believe this kind of pricing and rapid obsolescence is sustainable? Or are we secretly just trying to push more people into trying moto with these prices, because why not, we are already convincing them this is how much it costs and in some places access is equally as restricted.

Opinion: The Case For Being 'Over-Biked'
So, like many, this is something that I have though about quite a bit, but there is one very important element in this discussion that never seems to come up or get the consideration it deserves. What is your current goal/happy place as a rider? Are you trying to progress technically as a rider? Currently focused on and excited about pushing your comfort zone and getting into bigger terrain with some higher consequence features? You will probably be better served and happier on a bigger bike that is going to really play well to that objective. Being "underbiked" does not encourage someone to try totally new/bigger/scarier things that they have not already dialed. They may work up to it, but they may not. It just doesn't encourage that. People hitting big things on small bikes have probably already hit bigger things on bigger bikes. Things that are small to one person can be big to another because perspective and experience is everything, and is unique to every rider and how they interpret every trail. Being more underbiked I think encourages you to push your distances and fitness, but stay more within your technical progression comfort zone. Once you have that fitness, you can do still do those distances on a bigger bike but it is perhaps less encouraging to push those boundaries out further. You are most likely not rapidly unlocking features on something you feel undergunned on. And you are most likely not rapidly unlocking miles on something you feel overgunned on. Play to your interests and goals as a rider and less to trends and what other people consider ideal for a given terrain.
