In this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I explain the three major motorcycle helmet certifications. If you live in the United States, you should see a DOT on every motorcycle helmet. If it doesn’t show DOT, then it’s not a real helmet. Some helmets also have the SNELL symbol. I’ll explain the difference between these two markings.

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • What are the three most common certifications: DOT, SNELL, and ECE.
  • Why all real helmets in the US must show the DOT symbol to be legal helmets.
  • What is the difference between DOT and SNELL?
  • Which is better, DOT or SNELL?
  • Who uses the ECE rating?
