I tried to find information even from another activity but I understand it would be very hard to measure and even then at what point. Crashing leaving the house or after a couple of hours where fatigue could be a factor? There's always going to be some amount of qualification of the data.  I've been strictly thinking about it from the perspective of kids but I had a friend bring up that it's a good conversation for adult helmets as well. Both in terms of being realistic about just how fast we're going and aggressively we're riding (for example, I feel for my Tech-C riding I'm perfectly suited by my Kali Invader or something like a Super Air rather than a DH-rated lid). And also, it's a reason to hold helmet companies to account when their posted weights are not even close to actual weights since that could be a factor in choosing a lid.
