    New question here. LAS Helmets?? Heard of them? Suitable for Mountain Biking??

    I saw these new helmets and they look great. Supposed to be very comfortable and light. But, they seem to be associated with Road. Anybody heard of these being used for Mountain??

    Thanks!

    Road and mountain helmets have to meet the same safety standards and tests to be sold in the US. XC helmets are often almost identical in design to "road" models from the same company but with a visor attached.

    The last few years have seen more MTB-specific designs that add more support around the back of the head, but the technology and construction for the rest of the helmet is still the same as other road and XC helmets. The real difference is when you get into helmets for more aggressive riding like full face designs
