UPDATE (December 2010): Apparently Urban Helmets is no longer in business.
We were the first to review the URBAN N20 Astro full-face and the URBAN N350
Moto motorcycle helmets when they became available in the UK. The
helmets became popular with American motorcycle riders and they are now DOT
approved and available in the U.S.A.
SMF Cycles, the URBAN Helmets importer and distributor (and online
retailer), sent us the new DOT approved N20 and N350 helmets so we could
display some photos for you.
These helmets are identical in every way to the ECE-approved versions sold
in Europe that we reviewed previously (see the links to the reviews below) so
in effect, the helmets meet both standards.
Nothing else has changed; they're still the high-quality helmets we liked
when we first reviewed them, and they're reasonably priced.
So here are some wBW
Lightbox photos; click on an image to enlarge it and also
see the video tour of the URBAN N20 Astro and N350 Moto DOT-approved helmets below.

N20 Astro shown
in the table above retails for only $199.95 in Matte
Black and $229.95 for graphics. The
N350 Moto shown in the lower table retails for $179.95.
The helmets available in the U.S.A. are now DOT approved!
