After taking a good hit, my old helmet had a crack in the foam (not the exterior shell, check inside!) and upgraded to the Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MIPS after the recommendation from my gearhead Mike. MIPS/protection and comfort were my primary concerns with finding a new helmet, and the Bushwhacker fits that bill! I have ~30hrs of mountain biking and 15hrs of gravel biking in this helmet. Construction of the helmet appears to be solid. The dial adjustment at the rear is easy to manipulate. The visor is adequate, without getting in the way. The MIPS systems appears to be a little more free to move in this helmet vs. my old one (Bontrager). I've stashed sunglasses on the back of the helmet securely through some rowdy descents at sunset without worry. The ventilation is significantly better in the Bushwhacker, noticeable on the first ride. It's humid here in the summer (western NC mountains) and this helmet stays comfortable, while feeling like enough protection for the steep/technical/rocky trails around here. Excellent helmet.
