Kali's tech is legit. Brad Waldron is smart as hell and the dude is all about pushing technology to save people's lives and brains. He's always more than willing to discuss the science. Big fan of Kali.

@jmd07aa: Second half of your post is true. The first half is horse shit. It's pretty common for EPS to crack and split in areas during impacts. That is sometimes part of the breaking down and dispersion process of the helmet. EPS is meant to spread the g's across a great surface. It decreases impact speeds in ms by roughly 80-85%. That's the first function. It deforms in order to slow those speeds so your brain doesn't slam into your skull. That's why folks are using multi-density foams now. Companies actually add chemicals to the polystyrene to decrease the splitting. Why would they do this if it's a feature? They're even going as far as reinforcing the stuff with carbon fiber. Obviously having the helmet expose before your head does is nice but efficiently dispersing the energy without exploding would be the feature.

@ismasan: impact and rotational impact are completely different...

@sarahmoore: Not surprised. LOL. The Nomads' not out yet. You can never include EVERYONE in these types of tests. That was kinda my point anyways.

@browntown40: Not necessarily... in regards to more money more protection. I've seen very expensive helmets split in half. At some point the more money is just fluff... because margins. More money less sales... same margins... more money. So what you end up getting are usually better finishes, buckles, strap colors and stitches, etc. Things like that. Often times the safety ends of it are very similar between the two ranges.

Bell's not in there either. The Spark with MIPS is $70. Nomad with MIPS is $50... etc.

You can find anything online at a discount at some point. So these types of discussions are somewhat pointless. This is equal playing field. Full retail assumption. Of course the finish of a $60 helmet is going to be lesser than a $110-120 helmet. Least, it should be. A quality MIPS equipped helmet at a sub $60 retail is awesome for the industry. Long as it doesn't suck. Ha!
