It's hard to put a price on safety, but $900 is outta my range.

I am just curious as to what the helmet is like. Haven't see any tests on it. I am out of commission over 3 years now from a concussion, so it interests me a lot.
And if the technology works, I am sure prices will drop. I always thought you recovered from a concussion like Rockford always did! Since I have found out
that isn't the case, anything to help reduce the effects has my interest.

That's pretty compelling testing data. Will be interesting to see if it holds up to any independent testing (i.e. Sharps).

Agree that $900 is a bitter pill. But when you're sitting on the couch recuperating from a crash, it's interesting how the mind recalculates how much you'd pay right now to not be injured.

NFL using it? If not, why?

That is exactly how I feel right now!

I would love to see one and try it. Over 3 years fighting a concussion, if they can help prevent it again, worth every penny to me!
I'll have to check out some Supercross, thanks.
