DOT is the very minimum rating that helmets can have and still be legal. With that being said all of my and my friends motorcycle helmets have always been SNELL M rated. It's not something you should skimp on, a helmet is the most important part of your safety gear, whether racing or riding.
So you did mis-speak?
