DOT cert vs looks - cyfar MI
Recommended by Reviewer: No
Pros: DOT certification
Cons: Size due to amount of required protection
I'm happy Michigan has no helmet requirement. I think it would be a great idea to start carrying products that are not DOT certified, which should be allowed for sale in states that allow it. DOT helmets tend to be oversized and they don't look good. When I put ZOX Chopper helmet on, if fit great inside but it was not what I was looking for, as far as the outside. It's too big because of all the safety gear inside required by DOT. It made my head look like thumb in a shot glass. I am concerned about my safety as much as any other rider, but I would like a choice of non-DOT gear to look good on the rides that are not too dangerous. Thanks for taking it back.
