Feels a little different than a normal helmet though as the foam padding kind of slides/moves around a bit.
I actually reach around and tighten my M11 while it is on my head. This sort of "locks" it to my head and makes it very difficult to pull off. Just makes it feel like it's a part of me

He spoke with some doctors who said it wouldn't help prevent concussions. I'll link it up when it comes across.
That's interesting. I never really bought the M11's hype, because in order for any helmet to be any better at reducing concussions, it'd almost have to crumple like a car's bumper to absorb the impact.

I bought the M11, because it was the only helmet at the LHS that would fit over my huge melon.
