Virginia Tech Biomechanics Helmet Lab

Five Star Rating

In collaboration with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Virginia Tech Biomechanics Helmet Lab impact tests helmets to evaluate its ability to reduce linear acceleration and rotational velocity of the head resulting from a range of impacts a cyclist might experience. Virginia Tech has conducted these tests since 2011 and the ratings are the culmination of over 10 years of research on head impacts in sports to identify which helmets best reduce concussion risk.

Falconer Aero 2Vi® Mips places 7th out of almost 200 bike helmets, including full-face downhill helmets and E-bike certified commuter helmets. Third in road helmets, and first if you count "aero road" only.
