Snell rating too stiff?

I got this off another forum. Very interesting read if your into getting the best head protection. Time to re-evaluate my headgear. http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/ge...helmet_review/

Old news, although something to possibly consider.
That being said, all of my helmets that I have raced with have been Snell approved, and I've crash tested more than my fair share of them in the last 29 years, with no real issues. (But then again a few people may disagree about my "mental stability")

It is just odd that the snell helmets transmitted more impact. plus the whole section on small head = light weight and large head = more weight and snell requiring the same density foam just doesn't make sense. Physics mandates that a heavier mass will take advantage of the foam crushing than a light mass. I worry about the wife (xs) and the boy when he starts to ride. ece standard seems to have the best rating without worrying about dot inconsistencies. Things that make you say hmmm...looking at shark helmets now. ece/dot cert.

We're currently using Suomy helmets with my sponsored riders, which are BSI certified. Lord knows that between Luke, Ronnie, Bill and Brandon, they've well tested them over the last 2 seasons.
Come to think of it, my last crash, I was wearing a Suomy as well.
