Found this gem on the internet. Lots of good unbiased rankings of helmets that is worth looking at:
Just get the Bauer 4500 "Concussion Bucket' like all of the NHL'ers wear and count the concussions!
A) How do you know the testing was done without (statistical or other) bias?
B) Were the sample sizes sufficient?
Just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's true.
They single handily changed the football helmet from theirs studies years ago
Methodology was off, it was a flawed study from the start, they recorded only one type of impact. It is far from the bible on helmet safety, and it's already outdated.
This may be the winner for the most intelligent dboard discussion ever.
A helmet will never prevent a concussion. Concussions are a physiological response to trauma when the brain impacts the skull due to impact or rapid deceleration of the head. Helmets are better suited for protecting the skull from fracture due to direct trauma. A manufacturer's claim is more a marketing bullet point than science
The "A helmet will never prevent a concussion" guy always posts on this topic and there is substantial evidence this guy has been wrong forever. Maybe he is a Bauer 4500 'concussion bucket' wearer for years.
