I don't think those answers will come first from cycling. With the multi-billion dollar questions hovering over football (from the NFL to college, to high school) I look to research being done now for that sport to permeate many other activities from mountain biking, to hockey, to equestrians, white water kayaking - basically, any sport where helmets are universally needed/expected.  Cycling has some venting needs that may be unique to those other sports but I'm not sure. I'm a sweaty dude and run fairly hot and have done a lot of long, warm days in a pad fit lid (which in my mind is a natural slip-plane in a crash) and I think sweat management is significantly more important than straight-up cooling - especially active cooling which is basically useless at our climbing speeds.  Anyways, regardless of what I think it will be interesting to see where helmets are 10-years from now.
