well, its a bit of a double edged sword. by adding protection such as a helmet, it adds to the invincible factor that people are feeling... same with every sport and pretty much... well... anything. sports, cars, whatever. the more safety features, the more reckless the user.
with the added protection, the properly built jumps and pipes, it just keeps forcing progression. injuries are bound to happen, and the higher we raise the bar, the more likely those injuries result in death. sad, but thems the breaks. risk reward.
i wear a helmet... keeps my head warm and allows me to go anywhere be it trees, park or whatever... the protection part is a bonus.
sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...
