I am very well aware of this "trivia." because that's exactly what it is.

I've own BMW and Schubert helmets exclusively. My current BMW System 6 and C3 were actually black listed in the USA because the company refused to pay the very expensive SNELL license. The helmets exceeded the very strict German TÜV testing and was accepted in every other country. I can't remember the last time a sticker protected my head...

Apologies for the Cycling thread hijack.
