    Stage is under 700 grams, and there are other full face trail helmets priced higher.

    I think you’ve done your readers a disservice by neglecting the 6D helmet. As an engineer, after studying helmet technology, the 6D has crash benefits above the others. Secondly, MIPS is more about advertising and sucking money from your wallet than about safety. They can’t or won’t technically support their claims. It’s a hoax IMHO.

    Always wondered why bike helmuts cost so much and they are not subsidized by the government. They are happy to spend taxpayer money on much worse/needless/evil things (aka, “defense”) than helmuts, which, I’m betting, would end up saving everyone money (including the government) in the long run due to less injuries, medical bills, insurance payouts, etc.

    Great man! I think it`s good to know that such people exist) Becouse such art is very important nowdays, in our modern, i can even say digital age, we started to value digital things more than real ones. Richard LaBelle made very important thinkg to all of us donating his collection. As for me, i also own such collection of pottery & consider to donate it, firstly i think that this is the best autosite ever can show you how good it can look if it was exibitet in some museum or other public place. We should stop & loook back a bit and to more value real art stuff then digital as it it today. Wish you nice day=)
