I like the fist bump at 0:35.

And I'm not seeing a lot of protection there, except for the skull, which is smrt.

Cool vid, do you ride like that Griff?

Not hardly! I can clean some tricky XC climbs and reasonable Enduro routes but I usually have my self-preservation program running. I don't have the skills for trials type riding or extreme downhill.

EWS Madeira Stage 6. The lens doesn't due justice to the steepness of the course but check ot the work from about 4 minutes on. Keep in might that Yoann flying as he is was still 9 seconds off the leader on this stage. These guys are crazy fast.

That looks like it would be exciting at half speed, and a bit dangerous.

Also, the view was remarkably steady and framed as well as that lens could be. But I wish the view were wider, I found myself tipping the phone back trying to raise my line of sight. A wider lens, even a fisheye would be appreciated.

I'm interested.. We traveled recently and brought the bikes but forgot the helmets. Oops.

Having a couple like that in our camping kit would be great.

I just gotta say here.. maybe you don't want a helmet to be collapsible?

As someone who has smashed a helmet, I prefer a pretty decent helmet.

Excellent solo ride on Memorial Day. I ran into a couple other greybeards one doing trail maintenance and the other trying to beat his previous best on a climb using Strava. The ribs did not interfere.

I wondered about a helmet that collapses but then figured the worry is the padding between your head and the point of impact.
