If guys with metal pipes are after you, the black helmet is the better bet.

I wonder if these have safety ratings. (DOT, Snell, ECE)

The "guys beating on you with metal pipes" test has been a standard in the Japanese helmet industry since the meteoric rise motorcycle gangs in the 80's and 90's. :p

I think Japan made it by quality... China... well, most of products were made in China.. some were good and some were bad.. that is my only idea

Bash it thrash it, watch it rise and fall.

It could be fiberglass versus plastic.
Has to have a Snell approval and be fiberglass for me.

When they put the Chinese helmet (red one) on the table, one of them asked how many hits it took to break the Japanese model. 17 strikes, someone answered.

When the Chinese helmet fell apart on swing #2, he said, "The lesson is... don't buy a Chinese helmet." Duh!!!

I find it a bit ironic that the Russkies are making fun of Chinese quality. They're lucky their Russian-made pipe didn't break when it hit the plastic.
