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.
