excellent

By far the best helmet l've ever owned. Not too bulky and l like having the visor

After doing a little reading...
EPS: Absorbs energy by compressing and breaking apart, decelerating the head at a slower rate. Once the shell is completely broken the helmet is unable to absorb any more energy, which means whatever energy is left is sent directly to the head. Helmet is useless after one good impact.

Brock: Compresses and deforms to absorb impact. Shell also deforms and possibly breaks, depending on amount of energy, to absorb impact. Once shell is broken and foam is totally compressed, the rest of the energy is transferred directy to the head. Foam rebounds back to original form and helmet is good to use as long as shell is intact
