Interesting new helmet

Saw in this month's Popular Science. Anyone have one or seen one yet? Price in article doesn't seem too outrageous.

Re: Interesting new helmet

Nothing about DOT approval on their site

Only the Euro ECE 22.05 Standard

Re: Interesting new helmet

I agree, it does sound interesting. Anything to improve safety. Guess it needs to be thoroughly tested by object third parties and compared to the best helmets out there.

Re: Interesting new helmet

If it means anything at all the some DOT helmets can't be used in Europe because the impact the helmets take aren't high enough. I'd ride with a ECE 22.05 Standard helmet without thinking about it twice.

Re: Interesting new helmet

Hey, it's a neat idea.. if you don't like the helmet color, stretch a new one over it...
