POC Crane MIPS Helmet
The ever so popular POC Crane Helmet, the lightweight Crane employs a progressive core, dual density EPS liner for unmatched protection. The way it works is the outer section is stiffer, enabling more resilience to higher impacts, while the interior provides protection for the lower energy impacts. Working as one, the two densities offer a vigorous combination of protection and confidence. The BMX styled, Crane Pure helmet is generously ventilated to keep you cool when the riding heats up.
Additionally, this model of the Crane helmet is equipped with the patented MIPS system to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Where most helmets are tested for vertical impacts, studies have shown that the human brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts. MIPS technology mimics nature's own method of reducing forces transferred to the brain in the event of a crash. When subjected to an oblique impact, a membrane between the brain the skull allows the brain to slide along the inner surface of the skull, which ultimately reduces the forces transferred to the brain. MIPS helmets use a low friction layer between the shell and liner to mimic this process, which significantly reducing the forces transferred to the brain.

Price is more akin to a road racing bicycle helmet, but so is the finish and comfort.
Would I purchase it at full retail price? I still think it's a bit expensive, hence the 4/5 stars.
