While the 5-star virginia tech rating is great, it's probably worth noting that around 3/4s of the MTB helmets they've tested (33 out of 46) have got that rating, so that alone isn't the biggest differentiator among modern helmets. The A3 just squeaks into the top 20% of the MTB helmets tested, but notably gets a slightly worse safety score (11.01) than the A2 (9.99). I'm not entirely sure how to read a 1 point drop like that, but, considering the difference between a 4 and 5 star rating seems to be about 5 points, it might not be an insignificant shift.
