When you take stuff out, at some point that has to come at a cost. In this case, it's easy to see how branches and other items might more easily find their way in with all these vents, the open chin bar design etc. We have not yet tested it properly, so we don't know this for a fact, but it may also offer a...more

I understand that it technically meets the standards, but is there anything in the design that would make it less suitable or not suitable for DH? The fact that these press releases mention DH certification multiple times but stop shorty suggesting it for use as a DH helmet makes me feel like I'm missing something.

So can it be used for DH too? Last I checked lightweight and ventilated were things DH riders like too.

I like your optimism but thinking that Sam Hill had 6 more world Cup wins in him seems like along shot. EWS races are not a rehab for injuries. Those races are brutal and have almost as high a risk for injury as DH. If it really was about injuries and ... more »

That would be awesome but I would not likely bet on it. I think he probably has enough of DH and cab see the writing on the wall that he's never going to get back to the top. This is likely signaling his full time move to the DH retirement home. He's ... more »

"If we had to make a few critiques, due to how light the material is there's no counting on them to keep you protected in a fall."

Isn't this the whole reason DH pants and shorts were made bulky with extra layers of fabric in the first place? Isn't that the point of DH specific gear? To offer some extra protection and durability?

On obvious thing that stands out is how much the stem length changes along with the height. Basically with this stem low also means ridiculously long.
