MEDS, that is probably some kind of safety feature?

It will be interesting to read about the features of the new helmet.

Pretty much what i expected from it(more ventilation and new safety features). But i have to say that i thought they would've gone away from the aggressive/pointy design of the shell.

To boost the angle of the visor. Went on the center mount.

Agreed. While the design looks great. I definitely thought it would've been "rounded" out a touch. I want to know more about the MEDS "Motion Energy Distribution System" which seems to be their take on 6D's internal shock absorbers.

Looks more like a copy of the bell flex system. I don't see any elastomers like 6d has

Well, if it's a facelift only, I'd hate to see how you wear your helmet. Looks like a chunk of interior changes.

I agree, I think the rounded shape makes sense for safety and torque on the brain and spinal column. It seems to me they doubled down on the aggressive (dirt-grabbing) angular styling in this new bucket.
(Don't get me wrong, I liked the look of the VFX-W and own a couple of them).

The elastomer system is probably more resilient to multiple small impacts and gives a longer life of regular use. Still, I don't think it matters if they use EPS rather than elastomers given that almost everyone accepts buying a new helmet after a hard hit or a few years of use. The elastomer system has got to be extremely costly to produce.
