Beautiful Helmet .......But
I was window shopping WingStuff for a replacement helmet (I currently ride with a SHOEI RJ-platinum)and saw this beautifully crafted one. I decided to take a closer look at a local bike store (Their prices where higher than WingStuff and I would also have to pay sales tax). Upon closer inspection; I found that this particular Helmet is not SNELL certified - that completely turned me off; because it costs $600.00 plus!
All motorcycle helmets used in this country must be D.O.T certified - You can place an egg on top of your head and call it D.O.T certified. If it's not safe enough to Race in - It's not safe enough to ride in!
In comparison, other brands of modular helmets that are NOT Snell certified, price their products over $200.00 cheaper - That would be a good start for Shoei - The other is to CERTIFY this beautifully crafted helmet.
BTW - WingStuff should also state in their advertisement, whether their products are SNELL certified or not - Make it easier to tell the difference between Apples and Oranges.
