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.

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

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

Queensland was one of the first states to accept European standards motorcycle helmets and Victoria followed suit in August last year. NSW has also specified that it is now legal to wear motorcycle helmets that meet the UNECE22.05 (also known as ECE22.05) standard.
Helmets that were legal to wear and, by extension, able to be sold in the country had to have a sticker on the back of them indicating that they comply with the Australian certification. ...
