It’s an interesting note about helmet design. For example, I know that Brad from Kali designed Leatt lids as well as a few others, so not having a history of helmet manufacturing doesn’t necessarily weigh against a brand. ABUS has had commuter lids on the market for years and my understanding is they hired an experienced team for their mountain bike program - BUT, it probably should be (if it isn’t) in a companies best interest to talk about the helmet experience they’re employing when they’re new to lids.  Parenting and protection is a series of unknown best guesses of course. It’s like knee pads - better to pedal in and more dynamic movement might prevent crashes (as may a much lighter lid) but when it comes to putting her knee into a rock what’s the best option?
