  1. Anyone know of any Australian stockists for this helmet?

  2. You won't find it in oz.
    It looks very cheap and nasty !

  3. Doesn't appear to be available in OZ. The only vendors appear to be overseas, and according to all the listed specs doesn't appear to be certified to AS/NZS 1698 so therefore not legal here. Advertised as compliant with ECE 22.05 and DOT FMVSS-218. See links below.

    Yep, not available in OZ.

    Online reviews seem to offer a different opinion.

  4. Unless you're in Qld, surprisingly the most progressive state (at least on this issue ;) )

  5. Under CPN9 still not legal for local (Australian merchant) sale. Use of this helmet on public road is currently legal only in QLD.

  6. Interesting, never new the CPN9 rule. Luckily I can buy it from the US (probably for the same price, including shipping, as a local retailer would price it), and never intend on using it outside of Qld.

  7. All good! Just be careful, you are not that far from the NSW border, and you can bet dollars to donuts that the NSW wallopers will be all over you like a fat kid on a lollipop if you go there and get pulled over for any reason. Easy pickin's for them, and for you no defence.
