Great helmet but very annoying wind noise because of the little black plastic tab on left side of shield . I returned the helmet and got a HJC instead because there is not a shield for this helmet without this tab in it.
Dennis - I do not see any reference to a Snell rating on the packaging and/or manual so I can't fully answer the question. It is DOT approved but I believe all helmets are for safety standards. Good luck.
