Okay, I got excited when I first starting reading the ohter post about this helmet. I too am always looking for the lowest-profile, DOT-compliant lid I can find. I thought I found that with the Outlaw that was recalled, and about which there have been several threads here. I did reply to the other thread, but I thought this issue was important enough to start a new thread to try and solve this.
Going to the AK-88 website: http://allforbikers.com/
and watching the two vids left me with some questions.
It sure looks like an identical twin to my two Outlaw helmets...... You know, the ones with the DOT sticker that were then found to be not DOT compliant, causing the big recall stink. The little "Made In China" patch inside the helmet is even identical to the AK-88 one in the video.
How the heck do you find out if this thing is actually DOT compliant before you throw down that kind of money, only to find out it is an Outlaw helmet under a different name? My Outlaws were purchased online for only $50.00 each. This AK-88 is certainly not worth what they are asking for it.
I've attached photos of one of my Outlaws for comparison to the one in the video.
