I have been thinking about weight as it applies to my ski helmet. Concussions are bad, but so is whiplash. Having a heavier helmet make the risk of whiplash higher. I type this today with a sore neck after taking a spill skiing yesterday, would I have the same pain if my helmet was lighter? Maybe.
My skiing has been progressing faster than my biking so I fall more often and the falls are starting to get consequential. This whole weight vs. protection thing has been on my mind a ton. Last year I fell on ice and got a concussion, this year I have fallen a couple times and had neck injuries. Finding the right balance is something I continue to research.
