And if you're exempt, you either wear no helmet or a DOT helmet. Technically not legal to wear a non DOT even if exempt.

I've heard that isn't true... but don't know any specifics or how they justify it.

"This isn't a helmet, it's just a really stiff hat or a very extensive pair of sunglasses"

seriously no cop in america will with you if you have a full face helmet on. DOT is a scam...its a set of standards that a helmet company agrees to follow, its not even enforced really. Get the helmet, itll work...ROOF is all over Europe.

I love these helmets and agree with that ECE 22.05 is actually more rigorous than FMVSS 218 (Dot).

This is what webbikeworld.com said: We have a copy of an independent Snell testing laboratory report from 2003 for a ROOF Boxer that passed the Snell requirements for motorcycle helmets.
We are absolutely not saying that the ROOF Boxer V meets Snell standards; all I'm saying is that a single original Boxer was sent to an independent certified Snell testing lab in 2003 and it passed the tests required for Snell certification.
I have no more information but I can tell you that the helmet passed the retaining system, chin guard and penetration tests, among others.

Also, i found a official website with several colors available: Roof Helmets
