The Snell Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that sets voluntary safety standards for helmets for all types of sports, including horseback riders, bicycle riders and, of course, motorcyclists. Since obtaining a Snell helmet safety standard rating is not required like the DOT rating, the manufacturers who have their lids tested are typically going above and beyond what is expected of them in terms of head safety. So if you are searching for the best motorcycle helmets in terms of safety, make sure to check and see if the lid you’re looking at bears both DOT and Snell ratings.
To get Snell approval, helmets go through a multitude of stringent tests to ensure that they meet the organization’s stringent safety standards. Jafrum carries Snell M2010 rated helmets, as well as Snell 2005 helmets – both of which offer a higher standard of safety for motorcyclists. Be aware that M2005 helmets are no longer permitted to be used at AMA professional racing events, so if you’re planning on hitting the track, make sure to get a M2010.
And at Jafrum, you will find a huge variety of Snell-approved helmets in just about every color under the sun. We also carry the top names in the motorsports industry, including Bell, Arai and Shoei. You can also find many Snell helmets at Jafrum that are suitable for our racing customers.
Although these helmets are the best that you can buy in terms of safety, they are still affordably priced at Jafrum. We work very closely with our vendors in order to get the best prices possible for you. In addition, we also offer you a price guarantee so that you can purchase your next lid with complete confidence.
We also carry all of the other safety gear you will need while riding your motorcycle, including boots, jackets and chaps. At Jafrum, we strive to be your one stop for all your motorcycle apparel and gear shopping needs.
