Hrmm I wonder what kind of safety ratings its going to get. My biggest concern is with all the added material. There's a reason many helmets with built in visors don't pass SNELL. I'm usually ok with ECE rating at least with my helmets. But I know some tracks won't allow anything less then SNELL on it.

Tracks..? Surely this ain't a helment meant for any track racing. I guess you could, but yeah..

That's a pretty sweet looking helmet! Looks like something out of a HALO game. The GPS feature is awesome! I wonder how much $$ it is, probably way out of my league.

What's the difference between SNELL, DOT, & ECE.
Is it region specific safety std?

I would guess so, seeing as here in Europe it's all about the CE approval on items.

We Have both DOT & SNELL here in the U.S.

I have heard the the SNELL requirements are tougher than DOT.

Or do you have regulatory evidence to support this statement (I'm using a US sourced helmet).
