I am by no means an engineer, but after putting some thought into it, it looks like a good idea to me. I couldn't care less what Snell thinks about it, To me their testing procedure actually results in a less safe helmet than the DOT standard. I see no issue with this helmet passing DOT, but I doubt we will be seeing it in the U.S. anytime soon. This might be one idea that would convince me to spend over $100 for a helmet. When I buy a helmet, I'm buying protection, plain and simple. That includes not only protection in the event of an accident, but protection from the environment, the wind, and all the crap in it. My helmet has been hit hard by airborne debris many times before. I don't pay for a fancy name, paint job, or a bunch of features that I don't need. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
