    As I was watching the video I was thinking how much better this design would be for emergencies, it makes sense.

    That is ... genius and it still technically have a chin-strap. It's the chin band-cup-holder-thing.

    Would probably help cut down wind noise quite a bit.

    Very cool idea. Helmets have not had any innovation in this area for a very, very long time. It would be interesting to see how well it holds up in impact situations.

    I was led to believe that a helmet that was tight around the neck can injure the neck in an accident

    Yeah true, the lower edge is much more rounded.

    Very clever idea. The current convertible helmets make me wonder because the front of the helmet is such a high percentage of first impacts in an accident (something like 30% on the chin area alone) so putting the "weaker" separating part towards the back makes sense.

    pretty interesting, that latch mechanism has got to be flawless tho

    i wonder about the weight? idk if this is a fair comparison, but the fliptop helmets are super heavy, i assume this would be same

    the one thing i worry about is in the event of a crash if paramedics need to get the helmet off to give you cpr or other potentially life saving aid what happens if they don't know how the helmet comes off and can't figure out? i'd hate to see someone die from a seemingly good idea.

    on that basis alone i'd give it second thoughts.
