Seems like the safest option.

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Coverage, style, adjustability, technology, safety

The Bad:

Warmer than my old S-Works XC helmet but that was to be expected.

Overall Review:

I recently went down with the XC helmet, cracking the shell which prompted me looking into a new helmet. I've always been more of a trail/DH/park rider but had the XC helmet for a long time and figured I'd wear it until something happened. Well it did, and it got me looking into a more safe option designed for my preferred riding style. I looked into most of the MIPS helmets and while that is a step forward from non-MIPS, I just felt that the ODS system from 6D made sense and provided more protection than MIPS.

The not so great: When looking in a mirror it gives you the impression of the attached photo, but that's just the first impression I had. I haven't seen anyone wreck on the trail from staring at the helmet so maybe it's not so bad. It is a little warmer than my XC S-works helmet

The not so great: When looking in a mirror it gives you the impression of the attached photo, but that's just the first impression I had.  I haven't seen anyone wreck on the trail from staring at the helmet so maybe it's not so bad.   It is a little warmer than my XC S-works helmet but it's been in the 90's with ~150% humidity so there's that.  

It certainly gives me added confidence on the trail knowing that if my head hits the ground or tree or low flying planes it'll be okay.  I love the colors and adjustability of the straps and pads that were included.  And it's not noticeably heavier than my XC helmet so I wouldn't let that deter you from buying.
