"Snell even claims that with some impacts the non-MIPS helmet outperformed the MIPS helmet." That doesn't surprise me. The Mips layer and it's fittings take up space that woud be used for a slightly thicker layer of EPS in a helmet without Mips. Admittedly, I never believed in the way Mips is implemented in bike helmets. Precisely because humans (in contrast to crash test dummies) usually have hair and skin on their heads (the former might not always be true but i sure hope that the latter is). With most helmets, i'm more worried about them sliding too much in case of a crash instead of too little. Ironically, i own a Mips helmet, because the model that fit my head best had Mips in it.
