Since its founding in 1957, the Snell Memorial Foundation has tested helmets indepedent of US safety regulations. Snell has created standards over the years that have truly upped the ante in terms of head protection. Snell M2005 motorcycle helmets are subject to more rigorous testing including positional stability which dictates if the helmet will shift dangerously on impact, penetration tests from multiple angles, even chinbars and faceshields are tested for impact resistance. In addition, Snell M2005 approved helmets are subject to re-testing for compliance regularly. A Snell M2005 certified motorcycle helmet will always meet or exceed DOT standards.
RevZilla carries more than 150 Snell M2005 motorcycle helmets from brands such as Arai, Shoei, HJC, Icon and many more. Motorcycle helmet safety standards can get complicated, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. After all, this is the most vital organ we're talking about.
