Thanks for posting this, I've been looking for a new helmet. The only thing I don't like about this is the drop down sun visor because it doesn't cover the entire line of sight.

It is DOT certified.


"DOT standards are federally mandated, while Snell certification is optional, and issued by a private non-profit testing organization. The ECE (Economic Commission for Europe) standard, R 22.05, is the European version of the DOT standard, though its tests are more rigorous."

My understanding is that Snell is not possible with integrated flip-down sunglasses.

Snell is optional, but also more rigorous than the DOT standard, which is why some people would like to see both.

Agreed with other comments.

Chinese lids. Spend more and use sharp ratings as your resource if you are concerned about safety.

DOT means close to nothing. Helmets are picked randomly for testing. That means the majority of helmets can have a DOT label slapped on them but may have never been tested. That's the American way. Use sharp, ece, Snell.

To my understanding DOT cert is optional in a way too, as none of the certs are verified by the DOT. As I understand it, a manufacturer simply indicates that the helmet is DOT compliant and that's the end of it. I personally would much rather see SNELL or ECE over DOT. Please correct me if I'm wrong, just trying to provide insight before someone drops 200 bones.

I agree with your general premise but LS2 is a pretty reputable manufacturer with plenty of other helmets that pass ECE/Snell certs. While I wouldn't recommend this one and its lack of Snell/ECE I don't want the average browser to think of LS2 poorly.
