I'm not saying child car seats are useless, nor am I saying the same for helmets but if you're barreling down a run at 50mph and wipe out and bang your head, how much will a helmet help you? I've been in the market to buy a good one and I'm surprised how light they feel with don't have a whole lot of padding.
If you get a ski race helmet I bet those are rated for speeds above 50...
