Power is nothing without modulation. Sure, there may be slightly more powerful brakes out there...but can they modulate that braking force like the RSC's...I sincerely doubt it. They slow you down so surely and smoothly...you almost don't realize how steady they decelerate you. You won't be disappointed.

Took a silly fall at Moab, landed on my right temple. Shell dented but EVA foam appears intact. No kidding, would have meant at least a trip to the ICU. All decent helmets work well, but this one is a far superior product. Think about it...we spend thousands on carbon bling, we shouldn't skimp on head protection! I'm a POC fan for life.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

When deciding on whether to buy this thing I came across a video reviewer that said "it's about surviving the climbs to your favorite downhill trails." That sold me. I got it to ride DH trails w/o lift access. Having just ridden KT, Vermont I can assure you it climbs much better than average for a bike with so much travel. If you want an up as good as down bike though, you're in the wrong aisle. IMO, it's the slack angles and long TT that hurt climbing. The rear suspension is as stable a platform as anything I've ever ridden. (And I've tried plenty of VPP and DW-link bikes). But on the downs...it feels like cheating! For comparison I rode my friend's older 130mm travel Yeti on some DH runs. My bud smoked me on my Insurgent, while I nearly crapped my shorts. Had 150mm forks on it for a while, which, in my hands, made it feel balanced and more lively on flatter terrain. Had a 160mm Pike for the Kingdom Trails trip which helped stability on downhills, but made it less lively on flatter stuff. Either way, does scrape pedals more than average so consider the 170mm crank arms. Bottom line, it rips DH trails in any flavor. So if bombing down is your thing, this thing is an Evil pleasure. ; )

I've run plenty of other grips on everything from cross country rigs to park bikes. Nothing matches the tack and comfort of these grips. Only one gripe...the lock rings, which are made of aluminum, can dig into carbon bars a bit. Need to file down the sharp edges a bit, use carbon grip compound and torque to specs. Then you're fine.

The helmet is lightweight, vents very well and covers the occipital and parietal areas of the head way better than those road bike lookin' skimpy beanie caps. It is pricey...but when it comes to protecting your noggin, you'd be a fool to cheap out. I'll also comment that my measured head circumference had me in the XL range, but I ordered the Med/Lrg b/c the CC customer service told me Euro brand helmets fit a more oblong head shape. Turned out the Med/Lrg fit like it was molded for me.
