Cons Heavier weight, average ventilationExpensiveOn the heavier side, non-adjustable strap splittersExpensive, visor is less user friendly than the competitionExpensive, still not as ventilated as the competition
Bottom Line The Sixer MIPS performs right alongside the best helmets in our test with just a little bit of added weightThe Specialized Ambush is one of the best helmets in this test, and it comes with a unique crash detection systemThis new model took us by surprise and was one of our top rated favoritesThe combination of protection, comfort, ventilation, and lightweight make this one of our highest rated helmetsThe Forefront 2 is an updated version of Smith's popular Forefront helmet with the same comfortable fit and several improvements
