Default Re: Helmet Standard Question

Well, for good or bad my decision is easy. With the shape of my melon, only an ARAI Signet GT fits. Dunno if they are CE compliant.



'Course, I just came out of a head-on with a Subaru in pretty great shape. ARAI did the inspection on my hat, and they said "You got your money's worth out of this one!".



Now, if I can only find one to buy. Kinda tough since ARAI abolished mail-order.

Arai meets and exceeds all standards. That said, people should less focus on standards compliance and more to a very simple rule: the ONLY helmet that's going to protect your head the way you want it, is the one that FITS best. You can buy the best, most expensive helmet money can buy, if it don't fit 100% correctly it will not do it's job like you want it too.

I signed up two months ago and I still get loads of rings with no one answering when I pick up, which is a telemarketting computer dialing my number. Also got a call from some scumbag last week.



I guess it takes several months for the list to take effect. I'm not holding my breath.

A helmet is something that you need to wear if you are not lucky enough to be born with a rock for a head !

Default While we're on the topic

What do people think about the Schuberth Concept helmets? I know they pass DOT, but not Snell (although someone commented that this was due to Snell not knowing whether to test as open-face or full-face). Do they stand up to CE?



Thanks

The national do not call list is not supposed to go active until October. They are simply taking the numbers now.

If you set your phone up where it doesn't accept blocked calls it cuts out about 90% of telemarketers.

I'm assuming you have call ID.

The way mine's set up is if you call my house from a blocked number you have to enter your area code and phone number before the call goes through.

Default HEY!

HOW CAN A SNELL STANDARD BE WORSE THAN A DOT STANDARD AT ANY SPEED IF EVERY SNELL HELMET HAS A DOT STICKER AS WELL?



I JUST WISH I HAD BEEN WEARING A HELMET OVER MY WHOLE BODY WHEN THOSE GRAVEL TRUCKS SQUASHED ME.

To be sold in the EU they have to be compliant. But if my memory is correct in Britain they pass as an open face only. Don't know much about them except it's a courrier favorite in London along with Nolan, Shoei and X-Lite. Hope this helps.
