Hey guys need some help.... I have an ACC helmet (non dot) and the liner finally peeled all the way up. Cant find any replacement parts except go to a fabric store and look around. I know ACC is not making motorcycle helmets as of now, and I was looking at getting a replacement. The 2 that keep coming up in searches is Daytona Skull cap, and Zox Old School. Anyone familiar with these helmets and maybe how they compare to ACC? Thanks!

I purchased a helmet from ACC about 2 mos ago. They sold it as a kayak helmet and the understanding that it is not d.o.t. approved. It looked as though it was made the same way as the M/C helmets they sold earlier. Now it seems as though ACC changed its name to Composite Craft. Heres their website:

I'll figure out a way to get mine refoamed if it comes to it. I love my ACC non-dot. They call that foam Ensolite if I'm not mistaken.

They focked up and decided to try to sneak by DOT with a DOT helmet. The helmet didn't pass tests. They were forced to recall and refund money they obviously didn't have.

If they had left well enough alone and stuck to nonDOTs then it never would have happened. They make excellent, marginally protective helmets (ie, better than nothing), but they screwed themselves big time.

They are great helmets. Just don't be foolish (like ACC was) and try to pretend they'll do you any good in a real accident. They might help you if you fall off drunk in a parking lot, otherwise it's just placebo. I admit it anyway. I wont ride without a helmet, but will ride with an ACC nonDOT. Maybe I need therapy or something.
