I love all helmets by Specialized, previously had a Decibel, now a Specialized Prevail.
Very tempted to call BS on much of that Marx.
Who says the police give a rats about an ADR sticker on your helmet? What are they gonna do? Pull over a cyclist and confiscate his non-compliant helmet?
As for the line about insurance companies being wise to overseas purchases and then disputing claims etc, I am reasonably sure that is nothing more than urban myth.
Says me who bought three Specialized S3 helmets from an obscure UK retailer almost a year ago for a ridiculous bargain.
