What safety standards does this helmet meet?
Does this helmet meet DOT standards? What about Snell, M2005?
As far as I'm aware Shark does not certify with SNELL other than with their RS4 helmets (someone let me know if this is incorrect and they are now using SNELL), however this does not mean it is not a well built and safe helmet. The company puts their helmets through testing under SHARP (Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Program) which is a UK control and rating program however the S700 was not listed under SHARP though most of the Shark helmets rate as a 4 or 5 out of 5 in testing. The S700 is rated under DOT standards for the US and Canada as well as ECE R 22/05, INM NBR 7471/2001 (Brasil), AS/NZS 1698/2006 (Australia/New-Zélande).
