Perhaps this design might have application in motorsport where the
innermost helmet liner is more effectively coupled to the wearer's
head, but typical retention straps on bicycle helmets already allow
for plenty of "float" between helmet and skull.

At least as it relates to bikes, I think the chief benefit is likely
to be providing the mips people with a nice sinecure.

I have one. It looks so vintage displayed with the vintage bike on the
wall.

Not much protection but they are a lot cooler than styrofoam lined
ones.

That was my thinking, couldn't they be fabricated with EPF instead of the old
soft foam. Motorbike racers use leathers, can't be all bad...

POC MIPS are basically designed for freestyle downhill skiing, I
think, but could find a good application in e.g. downhill bicycling.
(This opinion from someone who's crashed more different ways than most
people.)

Anyone is free to wear one (unless their religion forbids it, I
suppose), but it seems to me it would be relatively hot and
ineffective.

Purely abrasion protection (and modest puncture protection) - no
impact protection. Also, they look cool with custom design and chicks
dig 'em.
