I'm not sure if the "shut their cake holes" comment was directed to me or not, regardless I'll respond with my thoughts. My comment was in reference to the ever-growing market of lightweight helmets that provide some level of jaw protection. This is clearly different than the DH helmet market. My point, was that for a similar price, you can have a helmet that is just a just as light and possibly stronger as it passed the ASTM test. The MET Parachute is not a DH helmet, but it's reassuring that it's as strong as one. Bell's excuse is that their helmet couldn't pass the ASTM test because it was too vented…which is hard to believe as the MET is, if not more, vented. No paranoia here, just being wise with my money…

Too bad it doesn't have an ASTM1592 Downhill blessing like the MET Parachute…
