One of the cycling groups on Facebook I follow had this link from an NPR story about fake Specialized helmets and how to spot them www.npr.org/2018/09/16/647377213/fake-bike-helmets-cheap-but-dangerous

If you've bought a helmet on eBay, check it now.

And it is not only counterfeit helmets, it is also no-name brands from China. A lot of them have no safety testing done at all.

I'll stick with name brand helmets from reputable vendors for my safety.
