I agree with your observations elsewhere here about the maddening opacity of helmet-safety research and about parenting & protection being lots of guesswork. Still so in the dark a decade after the [Bicycling article]( on helmet safety. To me, the industry's failure to come up with an updated certification is simply indefensible. Anyway, for what it's worth my own parenting/protection guesswork led me to Leatt's halfshell DBX 2 for my kid. She likes it a lot. Before that she had a Bell Super 3R MIPS with removable fullface, but she didn't like riding with the chinbar. She much prefers the lighter Leatt, and I believe in their 360 turbines more than I do regular mips.
