    interesting , does the test rig take into account the mechanical comliance built into the human body ? i ask as i have hit the tarmac without a helmet at over 30 mph on many occassions without a helmet and havent even lost consciousness , if these tests shown are to be believed i should have died many times over , i feel that all helmet testing is more to do with scaring people into buying rather than real world testing , but, you should still wear a helmet !

    I wonder then — if you’re that concerned — why you don’t jump on a bicycle with a motorcycle helmet?
