I doubt everyone realizes it. In fact I think only a few people do. However the snell 2010 standard is "softer" in that they seem to have taken the advice of the MC testing, all the while calling their science bogus..

Nice looking helmet, I like my HJC, but who knows. Toys are fun.

Thumbs up

the Scorpion exo 400 is an example of a lowered price helmet that is well made without the high price ticket thats the point that you do not have to spent 500.00 to get a good helmet

I seriously like the look of that Crusade helmet. Sadly I have a brand new helmet already. Perhaps in a year or two.

I love the look and accessories the helmet come's with... The only thing keeping me from buying one is that the helmet is only Dot certified.

I might just wait for the new akuma helmet with the visor that changes from clear to smoke with the push of a button.

So a question...

Majority of impacts come from front left. Why aren't there a couple of them flashing LEDs in the front!

I've got a perfectly good helm right now, and I'm still considering one of these. Add in LEDs on the front and an internal visor like the Caberg has and this is a no brainer!

For the increased visibility due to the rear LEDs, I'm almost willing to give up on the internal visor.

Have to watch these guys for sure. Bet their next model(s) should prove interesting.
