Title: I need this helmet.
Post by: aviationfred on November 06, 2016, 10:29:51 AM
Maybe I can start a "Go Fund Me" page to afford this helmet.

The large weave Carbon Fiber looks incredible. An inner liner that can rotate on impact is ingenious.

Fred,

You might spend a little less money for the 6D helmets:

http://www.6dhelmets.com/ (http://www.6dhelmets.com/)

YouTube has lots of 6D helmet videos.

There is also the Multidirectional Impact Protection System (MIPS), a cheaper version of the 6D concept.  It's light, easy, and could even be retro-fitted to a lot of helmets  Many helmet makers are jumping on the MIPS technology.  Most helmet makers are calling attention to the MIPS, as a feature in their helmet specs.

The middle of this weird web page is a video, trust me, just scroll down and click on the blackness:

Sorry this clip is in the quirky Vimeo format, but MIPS explained:

Now I am no expert on helmets, but lately I went looking for something better than what was around a dozen years ago.  I found these two ideas, and both seem good to me.  I'd like to find anything better, but so far, this is the best stuff that I have found.  They do cost money, though.

Cheers,
Red
