regarding the stats about crashes... I would ask whether the severity of crash locations and potential damage matters more than frequency of crash location. As someone who landed on the top of my head rather violently last summer, I am convinced the helmet absorbed enough of the energy to save my neck. Point being, I'm not sure if frequency of impact location is more relevant to the desired outcome than location of impact.
all that said, this looks like a nice helmet. I hope it's still around when I am shopping for my next helmet.
Also, I'd love to see pictures of your forehead after a long ride with this helmet on... How long does it take for the marks to go away?!
