I really wish somebody would prove this so if money was tight I wouldn't feel bad wearing a cheaper one.Gimpdiggity said:It's inexpensive, so don't expect it to have all the bells and whisltes that a Suomy or an Arai is going to have...but it will protect you just as well.

The Snell tests certify that the acceleration of the headform never exceeds 300 G's. It seems unlikely to me that every helmet tested would provide the same exact results. I'm not trying to be a snob, for all I know KBC's might provide better protection than Arai, but usually you get what you pay for. I just wish Snell would publish the results.Gimpdiggity said:I would have to say that it is in fact proven by the SNELL foundation...
If both helmets are stamped with that seal of approval, I would say that they are both of equal quality as far as crash testing goes.
