Re: Snell95 M rated helmets

ALL helmets should be replaced after "one major blow" and usually some good
minor ones as well.  The M is for motorcycle not major (just in case some
people mis-read your post).  It doesn't generally use kevlar (strap=nylon)
or nomex (padding=plush velour) but the M shell is more "sharp object
impalement resistant" as I understand it.  

I have a Bell and while it's OK, the next helmet won't be one.  Simpson
would probably be my choice....
