Thinking about importing these, would love to get a general reaction.

They are very nice quality. Solid, light and seem to be constructed to above average standards. They are made by MOMO, the Ferrarri racing and performance company...

Looks like it's got rabbit ears on them! :laughing But they do look futuristic and kinda cool. I'd bet that AaUuuuGaa! would buy the yellow one at least.

The black one is very cool. If the silver "ears" were the same color as the helmet I'd like it better. Price?

If I remember right, they are in the average of helmet prices $300 - $400 maybe?? I could be wrong on that. But I do know that those would be a big hit with the street fighter crowd :thumb

Rez, By the way, are you heading to Indy this winter for the Dealer show??

I like the styling, but need the specs and DOT/Snell/pricing to say if I'd buy one...

To achive a DOT rating, you must apply for one. These are imports, that never even applied. They do pass the BSI standars, which are as stringent as DOT. They are even up for EEC-225

Like the ROOF I wear. It is not DOT or SNELL. Why? Cause DOT onever tested one. It's not that if it doesn't have that rating, it's a bad or cheap lid.

The Roof Diversion is the ONLY helmet so far to pass EEC 225 (UN standards)

Others, that you are familiar with, and carry a DOT rating have failed this rating.....


I think the EEC rating will be the global standard in the next few years.

With a voice like cycleforums, we may even have the power to make them listen to US, and have things like this better defined..

Global.................... it changes everything.....

Too many edges for me. Looks like it'd be a loud helmet. And what's with those wings? If they're vents they don't look good, to me. But that's me, a conservative guy:shrug
