Anyone see this? It sort of bashes Snell. A Pep Boys helmet did better than Scorpion? WTF? Your thoughts?

What's the most important factor in a helmet purchase?

I haven't read any articles latey, so I'm going back about 6 yrs. in my memory(worth noteing in that time there's been 3 concussions & approx. 45 gal. of captain morgan's rum) but I thought the snell rating was said to protect more at a hi-speed or more severe blow to the head, & if you had a slight or low-speed hit, it would actually transmit more energy to you head cuz of harder shell or whatever, basicly if it was a soft blow you'd be better off with a D.O.T. only helmet, which you can't control, but that was my understanding.
I don't wear my helmets cuz I don't want to scratch em, that way they stay nice & shiney! :hammer:
