i dont wanna get in a debate over it. both are great ratings to have but Snell helmets have trouble with passing the HIC requirement in ECE2205.

The text is pretty critical of the European standards; it questions and dismisses the criteria motivating some of the tests that the Snell M2000 standard doesn't include. If you're interested, there is some useful information in the article, but take it with a large grain of NaCl.
