Hey Caspermike, Tom here from Shred Ready and we I have never tried to pass anything off. I am am personally offended that you think that. Our helmets exceed my leaps and bound the certifcation for whitewater helmets.
I hope your not bashing my companies name with your anger towards Don and his statments about predator. If you have an issue with any of our products I welcome you to contact us (email@example.com)
Shred Ready could pass the tests with cheaper materials (i.e. eva foam) and thinner foams but choose to use better materials in our helmets (VN, EPP) virgin ABS plastic, Kevlar. In our composite and carbon helmets we the entire shell has layers of each material,,not just in places where the consumer can see it! Stainless strap hangers so the holes in webbing don't fray and come loose over time.
