[ST] Helmet

One of the US magazines
l did a comprehensive article some months back, even lost them advertisers
due to the results.

Rather than inject our personal uninformed comments I suggest anyone looking
for a GOOD helmet read helmet review

There's a LOT more than one spec DOT, SNELL, Euro being the best. Read it
then make an informed purchase.

The article provides some very useful data from Europe on the G force
transmission levels. You DEFINITELY can't say that because a helmet meets
SNELL it is worse as the SNELL spec like others relates to maximum
transmissions and most that meet SNELL also meet DOT or European specs that
have lower G levels.

Here in Aus there is an additional requirement, the spike test that no-one
else has. Don't know if it makes a helmet potentially better or worse, but
it does add to the cost as another system of tests has to be passed.

We were in the position of being able to import a very good European brand
but decided against as the up front costs were prohibitive for what would
have been a niche market.
