Ahhhh ! What a nice looking helmet. And light too. I had to look twice to make sure I had it in my hand when I picked it up. Thing is so light it just about floats. I just tried on a large about an hour ago. Damn do I want that thing. I just dont want to pay $900- for the thing. :crap: Sure would go nice with my Black and titanium 954 though. Does anyone here from the site happen to have one?

Damn, your name is just deeply disturbing for some reason.

Nice lids, I wish I had that kind of dough in my budget for one.

U.S. DOT and ECE-22.05 Safety Certification

Well don't bother bringing the bling to Grattan, it won't pass inspection. No Snell, no sell. :nono:

and it looks like crap anyway. Why not just buy some stupid CF stick on paper and wrap it around your head?

Suomy is B.S.I. 6658 compliant. Are the rules at Grattan such that it's Snell or no ride?
The rules for Fireblades.org [email protected] are such that if the country you are from uses BSI or ECE as their standard for competition helmets, then they are allowed (as long as they are in excellent condition and less than 5 years old and carry the current certification). If you are from the US, then a Snell 2000 or later certification is required (along with the same age and condition requirements).

What nobody likes my screen name? It does'nt matter anyway. Trust me it has NO meaning on my part. Yeah, no Snell approval. One of the reasons why I dont like spending that kind of money.

Do you really think it looks like crap? I actually thought it was half decent. Its obviously not flat which means there is a seem in it. And it just so happens to run down the center of the helmet...... as if you split it in half. Although the seem is noticeable its very well done.

I don't understand the logic, but anyway I'm thread jacking.

Better pic of Vemar.

The logic is based on following the primary standard for the locality involved. In other words, since this is the US and the prevailing safety standard for competition based helmets is SNELL, that is the requirement. The exception is for people that come from another country where SNELL is not the prevailing safety standard and even purchasing a SNELL certified helmet may be difficult. This is similar to the FIMs requirements since they host riders from around the world.

As I pointed out in another thread, the Suomy helmets may be good, but to maintain their light weight they decided to go for a standard their helmet could pass. The Suomy helmets cannot handle the "second blow" required in the SNELL certification without exceeding the maximum allowable G transfer. I think this speaks for itself . . .

If BDA were coming, I would have to allow the foil helmet as well . . .
