Default Helmets in "Sons of Anarchy"

I recorded Sons of Anarchy and watched it yesterday and I noticed their half helmets were very low-profile (looked like they all wore the same). Anybody know if those were just "novelty" helmets or an actual brand of DOT helmet? I'd like to have one that slim if they're for real.

One thing I noticed is that they had the plastic bicycle style latch (one that the two pieces clip together). Definitely not strong enough for DOT ...

I didn't notice the latches, but I have these and they claim to meet DOT specs. I hope so since we use and like them.

Quite at bit of this kind of stuff on ebay.

And you have to be a 1%'er to wear them. It's the Law!

I don't know why they bother with helmets at all. They seem to live in an area where an extended firefight with automatic weapons, explosions and massive fireballs don't attract the law. Who's worried about a helmet ticket there?
