They all say they do. They have to meet certain guidelines but other that that I think they are about the same. Remember at 150 mph it dont make that much of a difference.

The one that you'll wear everywhere. Try on as many as it takes to find one you can live with day in and day out. As long as it's marked DOT, it's legal. I would recommend finding a helmet with some additional certification too- whether it's BSI, ECE, or Snell.

Phenix Rider pretty much covered it. A DOT approved helmet meets the bare minimum of testing requirements. A SNELL approved helmet has met higher standards.

Not to be silly, but a helmet does you no good if you're not going to wear it, so find one that you know you'll be okay with wearing, and then check for approval ratings of that style.
