My gf blew a turn, went straight into gravel/rocks, tucked the front and went down. This happened at only 30mph. Icon Alliance helmet looks pretty much exactly like yours, with slight penetration past the outer shell. She did, after all, land into pointy rocks. Walked away with not even a headache.
That's it for the helmet. The piece of gear that REALLY saved her was the $15 kneepads. She was wearing kevlar jeans with pads underneath. She landed knee first into rocks, ripped the jeans at the knee and just had a small bruise instead of knee replacement surgery.
