Built for extreme performance and unparalleled protection, the Racemaster is Rudy Project’s latest cycling helmet creation with an aggressive design.The new ‘Garage Eyewear Dock’ provides an innovative system to hold sunglasses at the back of the helmet, and prevents contact between the sunglasses’ temple arms and the user’s head. MIPS mimics the brain’s own protection system with a unique low-friction layer between the head and the helmet. MIPS is scientifically proven to reduce some of the energy from an angled impact from nine accelerometers in a Hybrid III crash test dummy head. The dummy head wearing a helmet was subjected to an angled impact using the MIPS test rig.

First off my last Rudy helmet saved my life. For real. Ordered my new Rudy helmet which I have yet to use as I deal with post concussion issues. However I can comment on the fit. Feels great but is a little snug. If you have a big head this helmet may not be to your liking.
The helmet runs small. Based on the sizing chart I ordered a small only to have to return it for a large. Other than that I like this helmet for better protection. This is my second Rudy helmet.
I love Rudy Project products. However, I have a very fat head (at least that is what my wife tells me), and the Racemaster with MIPS was just a touch too small. I have had 3 previous helmets and the large fit great. Like I said, this one was just a little too small.
I was in a crash and they honored their crash policy and when I sent it back under their return policy, RP refunded me the money and they were just awesome!! I just wish the helmet would have fit better.
