Question on a helmet

Hey guys,

Im on vacation in Taiwan (somewhere in Asia) and a cousin has offered to give me his helmet, which he's never used. It's a motorcycle helmet that's pretty high end here.

I was wondering if I could use it for any DE/autox events if I brought it back home. It's a full faced helmet, brand is Penguin, model PN-910

I can't find any stickers for Snell 95 rating or anything like that. The back Has 2 stickers. The first one has a serial number, and a big "S" on it, Then "600031". The second one I believe is a company logo. Some chinese letters, then "NCS" and "ISO 9002".

I was hoping that since it's an approved motorcycle helmet it should be ok for use at the track or autox. Can anyone help me out? If I can't use it, i'll just leave it here, but if i could use it, itd save me some money and be really great

Any help would be great. thanks

If it does not say "SNELL" anywhere, it is useless in the US.

Mod the driver. Participate in your local BMWCCA autocross or driving school. Have you joined BMWCCA yet?

If it has an FIA homologation sticker it may be worthwhile, but since it's a motorcycle helmet, I doubt it will have an FIA sticker.

Look on the inside of the helmet. Sometimes they choose to hide the stickers.
It might look something like this. I couldnt even see the M95 part untill I took a picture with a flash

cool, thanks guys. I'll try looking inside the helmet and underneath the lining for those stickers. If I don't see any, I guess i just wont take it and instead buy one back in the US
