superb unless you land on a sharp pointy object which bursts the helmet.

With today's ultra light, super vented XC lids you'd have a 50-50 chance a sharp pointy object would go through a vent and hit your skull directly too.

Thanks. No seriously thanks. I'm laughing so much at that first test crash that I'm almost certain going to be fired in a minute; just can't get over the *whack* straight on the face. :D

Anyway - would be a bit dubious about this, tbh - especially in an MTB world where you tend to get thrown around a lot (esp. on a hardtail). Be worried about scooting down a rocky / rooty section and having the thing inflate around me.

I prefer the one on the left. While it is obviously going to absorb less impact, it looks more natural.

I find the chin strap of my helment annoying enough if it's not just right. A massive great scarf thing with a gas cylinder attached is going to drive me potty.

Rossi and Stoner both wear their respective sponsor's (Dainese + Alpiestars) airbag equipped leathers.
