Stingers we used to call them when we were kids. Doesn't look comfortable even though you are smiling!

Did you come to any conclusions about the brackets (running with vs running without)? Or was this the point of the test?

I was not testing them personally but was supplying the helms during the tests. The overall response I was given was the armstrong brackets improved the experience but the results should be in a RIB international mag within months
