got a question on the safety ratings. the AFX-18's have a SNELL rating but the 39's dont? Is this correct? How come the AFX-18's are the only ones to have the SNELL rating? At least thats what I gathered from your web site info.

Also, I didnt see a HI-VIS model 39 on your web site but here in your pics?????

When I placed my order they definitely had a picture of the Hi-Viz on the site also was a color to select when placing the order.

Ok, I get it now

You're looking at fx18

Dunno why they bothered to get snell on that but not on the DS

I would hedge a guess that Snell has different specs for off road intended helmets vs a DS helmet targeted for the road

Funny, the 37 looks more modern than the newer 39.

We looked at Chico, eventually moved to Bend. Have a friend there, Don Flaner. It's a great town. Cool park. Brewery rocks. HOT though....

If you want Snell, you should get Snell. It is more structured, at least. It does not guarantee quality, but usually means higher price points, which give mfgs more room breathing room (cost-wise) to focus on it.

But if you have not already, you should read this:

How do the 37's and 39's fit? Arai's and Scorpian's fitt myhead perfectly, do these fit like Arai's?

Also, I was on your site looking at helmets and some of the 18's dont say they are SNELL in the verbage and some do say they are SNELL. Is that just a typo?

Hi Bob

Fit on the AFX 37 and 39 can be hit or miss I find.

Aside from the standard feel of a $120 helmet, if there is a complaint, the most common on the 37 has been pressure on the forehead. Again, either hit or miss. Say 20% put the helmet on and immediately talk about forehead pressure. The remainder like the helmet, like the price and are instantly satisfied with all the money they didn't spend on the other models, possibly thinking of all the dinners out they'll have with their honey on the boulevard on saturday nights.

Joe
