    Our brothers across the pond may know about this site.

    http://sharp.direct.gov.uk

    You can compare helmets, testing on whether or not a modular helmet chinbar will fail.

    Good info on this site!

    Yes.... its a very helpful site and in some cases quite a scary one too!!!

    I have never understood why some people will spend a fortune on leathers and then buy the cheapest helmet when the head is so vulnerable!

    That's cause they're good riders and will never need a helmet, let alone a good one.

    Thanks for the link.  Good info.

    I was surprised to see GT-Air performing worse than Neotec.  Would have though a true FF version of the Neotec would fair better.  I was considering getting one to augment the Neotec.  Maybe not.

    Also, Schuberth's are not as high scoring as their prices would suggest.

    I have seen studies that prove that $$ doesn't equate to more safety.  It can however equate to lighter, more comfortable, better paint, materials, etc.

    I am looking at the HJC RPHA MAX modular for my wife.  It has a streamlined shell, well balanced and light. 

    It is true though that skill and situational awareness will help keep you out of harm's way.  It is when the totally unpredictable happens that you will be thankful you have some gear on.  Deer, Dogs, and Drunks are my major concerns when riding.  My skill and situational awareness have reduced the other risks to a manageable level.

    My new helmet. HJC IS Max 2. Rated well by Sharp. Very nice helmet.

    Replacing my Neotec which was great, but I bought size too small and caused left ear pain after three hours or so. Expensive mistake but got a year out of it.
