That's one thing that bugs me about "high end" helmets. They have thin, hard EPP padding with a little bit of "comfort" padding on top.
I bought my M11 because it had some of the softest padding out there, although the exterior is somewhat flimsy. Ideally the S19 with custom padding to make a snugger fit would be the best helmet out there right now IMO.
But my philosophy is that helmets exist to prevent your skull from being cracked open and hold your visor/cage, not to prevent concussions.
