6D

  • The Good:

    Coverage, style, adjustability, technology, safety

MIPS seemingly took the bicycle helmet industry by storm a few years back, but we now have a new player producing some amazing he...

  • Review by Jeff Brines // Action photos by Matthew Doherty When it comes to function, downhill-oriented mountain bike helmets have remained more or less the same over the last decade. Helmets have become better looking, helmets have become lighter and in some cases, such as inclusion of MIPS...
