Head injuries in general - not just the fatal once - are more important than collarbones. My point is that just because broken collarbones are the most frequently occuring injury, it doesn't mean it's the worst, or the one that needs most attention.If death is the only criteria. Then you ought to admit safety isn't taken seriously. Lets focus on more sensible things. Like we did with joint mobility. And found a solution that doesn't obstruct joint mobility.
No, these current systems are not tFrom a technological standpoint there is a big difference in how they’re deployed, where the sensor is at, and the functionality of motor bike racing, professional bike racing, and recreational bike riding. The same system for motorbikes can’t be used in cycling as there would be false deployments. Just like the two sites you posted doesn’t work for professional cycling like it does recreational. With those same systems we would get false deployments that could lead to an actual crash. Just like one of the sites doesn’t protect the collarbone like you desire.
Sunscreen is available, and doesn't make riding a bike more difficult. A method for protecting collarbones - especially one that wouldn't make riding a bike more difficult - simply doesn't exist. So, as has been pointed out by several of us repeatedly it would be a waste of resourches to focus so much on preventing a minor injury.A risk of brain injury from crash. When cycling. This is always a possibility indeed. But saying that because of possible brain injury you won't wear sunscreen nor sunscreen has to be made available as a possibility.
Because it doesn't...So now you are going back on claiming a solution that offers protection and doesn't reduce joint mobility doesn't exist?
Yes, it is always a possibility. So why do we want to increase the odds of that possibility while decreasing the odds of a less important body system.@SHAD0W93
A risk of brain injury from crash. When cycling. This is always a possibility indeed. But saying that because of possible brain injury you won't wear sunscreen nor sunscreen has to be made available as a possibility. For things like protecting your skin and to lower the chance of premature skin ageing and cancer. That makes little sense. There are all sort of possible issues involved and possible ways to lower the risk. Personally i will insist on lowering the number of collarbone injuries. And hopefully in a couple of years we will see a drop in statistics. Due to airbag technology or something else. At least now we can say things like changing the color of jerseys to a more bright color. That likely won't reduce the number of collarbone injuries. We can always look in the statistics. Introduction of airbag technology likely would. Just like it did that in all other areas it was introduced. And no you wouldn't be bouncing all over the road like a ball because of it. If that would be possible. To inflate a whole ball around you. To bounce. The reality is that would not be such a bad outcome. Cyclist would likely occasionally crash for fun, though. I would wear that. But lets keep it real. Inflatable pocket on demand in collarbone area (spine, shoulder, chest, upper leg ...) is a nice start. A couple of months won't do. Said that in the next couple of years this needs to happen.
Happy holidays to you to.
