helmet gold stamp

hi i just bought a new caberg helmet at the BMF and noticed the other day that there is no gold ACU stamp. does this means a sh*t helmet or are people allowed to sell helmets without the stamp.

ACU Stamp

There is no legal requirement for an ACU stamp in order to sell a helmet.  All the ACU stamp means is that the helmet has been approved for use in motorsport.  To be honest, the system lost all credibility a while back anyway when it was discovered that you could just buy the stickers over the internet.

Making sure it is afe

Look on the SHARP site and that will tell you how safe your helmet might be in a crash. I have a Caberg Justissimo with no ACU stocker and that comes up as 4 out of 5 while my Nitro with an ACU sticker is only three out of five.
