DOT Helmets are made to US standards from Fibre glass, with polystyrene inner and padding. They conform to stringent US Department of Transport Regulations for Motorcycle helmets.
Novelty Helmets, as the name suggests, are not made to offer any protection and should not be used on the road.
With Motorcycle Crash Helmets we really recommend you try them on - especially the Novelty and cheaper makes -the DOT helmets in German style are a wider fit due to having polystyrene in them to PROTECT YOUR LIFE- so please do not send them back saying it doesnt look as cool!!
Novelty helmets if worn offer NO protection and you WILL be killed in an accident - DO NOT USE on the Roads.
WE HAVE HAD THIS!! A good friend of mine was killed wearing one- in spite of me warning him on many occasions .
You need a helmet to save you splattering your brains on the road -not for show think of your family and relatives if you are killed.-!!!
UK road legal helmets are safe and the American DOT standard although high is NOT LEGAL in UK
