Last I heard they are not dot approved. They will sell you a helmet for kayaking tho.
I am pretty happy with mine, No half helmet is going to protect your face tho.I want an ACC for in town riding also. Stonewheel picked up one of these helmets and I compared it to my DOT half helmet. They look really cool, but I really doubt they provide much protection. JMHO
Cant pass the what??????????????A helmet that cannot pass the 49 CFR 571.218 (FMVSS) specifications for impact attenuation or penetration is not safe to wear at any speed, not just on the highway.
This is the one for you blue-man...That’s pretty damn expensive for a Kayaking helmet too. Maybe I should just look at getting a really cool Kayak helmet.
