Check this crash video that recently surfaced on the web. It’s Japanese rider Shimon Kimura taking one of the gnarliest cliff tumbles we’ve ever seen, shot at the infamous Verbier Extreme free ride event several years ago. It’s amazing that he was able to shake it off. How on earth did he walk away from this one? Here is the extended version on vimeo, with his short interview after “mistake…lucky…”.

Stay tuned for our Gear Guide 2015 coming this fall, with a selection of the best helmets coming out for next season.
