Just curious as to how I would know or how
could I find out what the Snell rating on a helmet
was if it had no sticker on it. I have a Simpson
Bandit that for the life of me I cannot find a Snell
sticker on anywhere. I know I did not take the sticker
off either since the helmet was only used a few times
years ago and is in practically new condition - if I had
original purchase invoice with a date on it would that
give some indication as to the Snell rating?
