“An actual rocket scientist” ! (loved the humor in that article)
That was no less than a fantastic article that I would suggest anyone who is ignorant on helmet standards and safety (like me) should read before even clicking on that first link to shop for a helmet, or going down the the local shop. Being uneducated I was completely under the impression that the DOT standard, being a government standard, was the bottem of the barrel that manufacturers needed to achieve to sell their helmets here in the states. I was, as that article shows, absoletely wrong. Uncle Sam actually does a decent job with their DOT program! What’s more manufacturers out there are apparently meeting, and beating, this standard with helmets I don’t need a loan to afford!
It was very interesting to see that Snell, in their reply, seemed almost exclusively concerned with their own image and not in the least interested in changing their practices to achieve an even safer helmet for everyone of all sizes.
