  1. hi guys

    just wanted to know what your thoughts are.

    im looking at getting a helmet, it has the australian standards stickers on it, however it also has a sticker "made in japan"

    is this correct? im guessing they are not made in australia, but just double checking its a legal helmet.

    cheers nick

    :oops: (yes i am a newbie..)
  2. Yes, thats correct. I would say most if not all helmets are made overseas. Then either in the factory, or upon arrival in Australia they get AS 1698 sticker on them.
