Cheap Yamaha met, clear plastic guard of the face came off after just some hits, ruin paint chipped make for met ugly...

The first one in test show crumple zones good absorb many energy forces. The reused peanuts used for shipping transform to liner stayed intact by design. Now it can be reuse for bicycle met!

Hope you enjoy lab test video illustrate strong, reuse again helmet.

Safe bet racing

This isn't a quality issue, it's an ethics issue. helmets, baby food, pet food, iPhone and go pro knock offs. So many examples.
