Hey there!! A little bit of help in here!

Has anyone ever had any inconvenience with the helmet certification when pulled over?
I've been looking around a little bit and found that DOT it's not allowed in Australia but I definitely want to buy this helmet but it's DOT certified. Should I care about that?
Any help will be welcome.

    DOT is an American safety standard that many don't consider valid anyway because it's actually performed by the manufacturers. That basically means that AGV for example can say their helmets are DOT and no further independent tests are done. With that said, reputable companies have both DOT and ECE cerifications (ECE is the European standard and it's done by independent organizations, not the manufacturers). Scorpion is a reputable brand and if this is just DOT then it's weird, try to find this helmet in european websites, see what cerification they give it.

    Icon helmets are certified DOT FMVSS 218 (USA), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (JAPAN)
