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?

Its better to have a cheaper helmet that "fits right" rather than a $ 600.00 Arai that has pressure points etc....poor fitting helmets with pressure points are actually dangerous when receiving a hard blow :hammer:

I think it's useless...even the diagram is incorrect. Upon impact the shock dissipates evenly on the inner and outer shell. If the impact leaves a mark like on the drawing, you're most likely dead (with a nice hole/dent on your head) or crippled. the only sure way to be safe is replace the damaged helmet. It's still cheaper than the hospital bill...and it's definitely easier than not be able to wipe your own ass with your own hand... or something.
I'm listening to some bluegrass right now and your avatar is bouncing to the beat. Love it when that happens!
The only helmet that fits me correctly is tha Arai Signet GT and GTR series with it's "long oval" (Arai term) shape. Fortunately it is also one of the safest on the market.
