The sticker inside gives a manufactured date. This is super important when it comes to the safety and life of the helmet. My helmet is only 4 months old. It is SEI certified... but it is made in China. Yet, this might be some of China's best work. Had me fooled completely with the quality. I am not sure if any of the other helmets out there are American made. But now you know.
Structure- SOLID. There is zero exposed foam on the outside. There is no electrical tape type hem because everything is covered in some kind of hefty suede material below the shell. I think this should ensure longevity of the product against UV. The padding on the inside of the helmet (the top and the base of the skull) is removable for replacement or cleaning.... brow padding and padding around the crown is built in with the shell. Very thick (about an inch). The strap is typical nylon type material, but the chin and ear portions are covered in bonded leather and are very soft. Oh, and VERY well ventilated! It is pretty darn light for the sturdy construction. Comes with a helmet bag and some extra pads.
Also, it comes with a nice instruction booklet and some warranty (6 month limited). And it has a accident replacement program for up to ONE year with a small fee+ S&H from the purchase date. You have 30 days from the date of purchase to register your product if you want to be in the program. So, don't forget to register. It must be faxed though... weird for me because I don't have a fax machine. So I am going to have to go out and find a place to fax. I will get the next size up after my daughter grows out of this one. It is worth the money. And for the safety, 60-70 bucks is nothing... worth saving the money.
The assortment of self sticking foam inserts that are provided allows you to custom fit the helmet to your head.
I was able to get this helmet to fit tightly and securely which is important for the best protection.
This helmet is sturdily constructed and well padded and will do an excellent job in protecting your head.
The chin strap works well and can easily be buckled and unbuckled and its tightness adjusted.
