I the U.S. we offer the MX456 in two versions: Less expensive DOT version for trail riders (same basic helmet wihout the ECE standard is available for about $170. The ECE/DOT version for racers has a suggested retail of $209.95.
Did I answer what you were looking for?
Thank for clarification, I should have wait for your respond didn't know MX456 offer 2 versions Dot and both ECE/DOT racer version. Bought a Flag graphic ($169) yesterday. Just check, it only has DOT label on it. It's easily misunderstood as MX456 advertise as wore by Dakar Rally winner and many racers and end up getting less expensive Trail rider version. It's kind of misleading. I'm disappointed with Chaparral that sales person didn't tell me or know it has two versions, I don't think they carry ECE/DOT racer version. I would have happy to pay more.
Here is MX456 link page, it does say DOT and ECE approved.
Hope Chaparral can exchange with racer version or return.
