Dr Crash, I think you may have misunderstood the test data. The HB Carbon Dyneema helmet actually has one of the two best rating for top impacts. The force (in Kn) shown in the test results, is the force delivered to the neck of the test dummy. This means that a small number is good.

I was happy to see that my old standby, the Edelrid Ultralight, has low force numbers in all types of impact. When you take away all of the HB helmets (no longer availlable) the Edelrid might be the best over all. The Ecrin Rock is a bit better in top impacts, but a lot worse for front hits. The bucket's got to fit your noodle though.
