Did anyone see their test from a couple of issues ago? Seems the cheaper DOT-only approved lids came out better than the more exspensive USA Snell approved helmets. The Snell helmets were better than DOT at protecting against extreme impacts/punctures but transmitted more energy into the head while doing it. MM felt that the harder SNELL shells aren't really necessary because they protect against impacts that are very rarely seen on the street (track is another matter) and they allow too much energy to pass through to the head. Seems the "cheaper" softer DOT only shells were more forgiving in the tests. This all seems like info. that the helmet manufactures would already have or know themselves. A couple have already yanked their advertising from MM over their article. Of course I have a Arai Quantum/f (SNELL) but haven't seen a DOT lid that has the same features or comfort.
