Why doesn't this helmet have a D.O.T approval rating? This helmet looks exactly the same as the DOT approved helmet by the BELL company, but much more realistic looking in regards to government issue battle dress uniforms. Is there a difference in the material used in the construction of this helmet? I would buy this helmet and recommend it to as many people as possible if it had an approval for the road!
It isn't designed for the road, it is a ski and snowboard helmet. Designed to prevent head injuries when you hit snow going at a downhill ski speed, not road going highway speed. It is made of foam and an ABS shell.
