You need to be cairbull when buying helmets overseas, they rarely have the CPSC certification needed in the US
---let me try another----
Be cairbull what you wish for, this helmet looks so aero your head might advance beyond the front wheel.
---how about----
I'd tread cairbully with this purchase as I think these are made by imprisoned Uyghers in China.


The last one's no good. For starters it's straight up political/religious and is likely to offend but also, Uyghers (pron: We-Gers) is just too obscure.

I'll try to work up a few more. 'Til then, cool helmet, first I've heard of it.

I live in Europe not in the USA and don't race at home (meaning the US). If the helmet is really made by Uighur's who were inprisioned then I wouldn't buy it anyway (but then I would need a reliable source for that). It was just an option I was considering but I have not decided if I will really do it.

Looking at the shot of the inside of the helmet, I don't see any certification stickers (CE, CPSC, etc.). I doubt it you would be allowed to race with it.

Looking closer, I do see a black sticker on the back/right of the interior. Can't see any certification there though. Looking at their website, I see no mention of the helmet's safety certs: http://www.cairbullsport.com/helmets/62-en.html

In contrast, Giro's page on the Aerohead ( https://www.giro.com/...aerohead-mips-helmet ) mentions the certs, and the helmet has prominent stickers (see below).

Even when kit IS 'CE' marked, still be wary.
Some Chinese manufacturers claim it means 'China Export' - absolute BS of course, its there to confuse / dupe the buyer to thinking items are actually certified independently etc to suitable safety stds.

Not just bike lids, but all the way to copied road diggers etc.

The importer into the EU is responsible. So if you're buying such stuff, strictly you're the one responsible (and strixtly it's you breaking EU law if it's falsely marked).
