wtfkitsCredit to @girocycling for having fun with data. What it may be? We shall see in July said the spider to the fly.
- mspohnWhere's the "x% safer" box?
- hfpedersen^^ yeah, what he said
- mbeargabel@mspohn for the win
- robert3210@mspohn Any certified helmet is safe, even the ones from walmart.
- mspohn@robert3210 I said "safer" as in "reduces impact forces by x% over standards". Helmets are still far off from optimal or possible.
- coletininenkoNew air attack for sure
- wtfkits@mspohn appreciate the passion for safety. I can say over 3 bad spills (2 cycling and 1 snowboarding) my giro helmets have kept my head safe and is actually my helmet of choice. I trust Giro with my brain. It's everyone's prerogative to wear a helmet or not as it is to choose a brand that meets their personal satisfaction. Would love to actually continue this discussion shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: I have zero connection to Giro, I purchase my Giro products like everyone else from my local bike shop and local ski shop.
- jakeglahn@mspohn Giro won't/can't say that one of the helmets they produce is safer than another they produce - doesn't make any logical business sense. All helmets sold in the US are extremely safe. Actually, helmet safety standards are much higher here than in Europe - the European Atmos helmet only weighs ~180 grams!
- purrnest_hemingway@blinkexxists Helmet safety standards in the US actually make helmets less safe in protecting against concussions than in Europe.
- purrnest_hemingwayThe heavier helmets with the denser foam that we get in the US transmit more of the crash energy to our brains
- jakeglahn@aaronmangum interesting!
