    Gawd Dean, How many time I gotta tell you. The oil goes in the suit so you get in and off faster. (Interpret that how ever you want). ;)

    The "P" merely designates full-face helmets ("J" is for open-face (a.k.a "3/4") helmets; "NP" is for off-road helmets where the chin bar is not tested).

    The ECE label will consist of a circle enclosing an "E" followed by the "country number" (e.g. AGV = Italy = E3) There is then an "approval number" which will start with "05" and end in "/P" (e.g. 052099/P)

    Hope this helps :)

    Snell 95 I feel was one of the best, crashed at 150 mph at Spokane, broke my collarbone, smashed my helmet so hard I destroyed it, no concussion, nothing, fast forward to 2010, got taken out in turn 1 at Mission, landed on my head with a Snell 2005, heard the biggest crack and got a concussion, after that, no more Snell's unless what Dean says is the truth and not some BS Snell put forth.

    Edit, both were Shoei helmets.

    I got a question on the helmet thing. I got a new Suomy helmet DOT marked on the back. The inside it says APEX-S1R-EX. and manufactured Oct 2010. Does this helmet have any issues with the new rules???

    Oh I see on the chin strap I see the E3 in circle then the 052014/P I guess I'm good.

    Glad I could help :)

    Here's a typical example:
    [​IMG]

    To decipher:
    "E2" means this ECE-approved helmet manufacturer is from France;
    The number starts with "05", so it's ECE-22.05 tested;
    "1018" is the approval number;
    "/P" means a full-face helmet (with chin bar testing);
    The "320678" is the production serial number.
