Friday the 13th is considered unlucky by some, but a new online store selling DOT-approved helmets hopes a grand opening April 13 makes it the business’ lucky day.

Nobody can accuse the folks at DOTmotorcyclehelmetsandmopeds.com of burying the lead; the domain name pretty much tells the story.

Customers who check out the website April 13 can enter code Apl13 for a discount on the purchase of a brand new moped or scooter and helmet.

The online business showcases motorcycle helmet designed to meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 218. The helmets are designed of a lightweight, durable composite material; have a heavily cushioned and comfortable interior, removable and washable padding, and are ACS ventilated for a very comfortable on/off-road riding experience. Some of the helmets even feature a sun shield thermoplastic outer shell, and an adjustable visor with UV protection.

The motorsport products consist of DOT-approved and EPA-certified gas and electric mopeds and scooters that range from gas scooter engines of 49cc to 150cc, four-stroke, electric kickstart, key ignition, with top speeds up to 60mph. The Canadian moped/scooter offered meets Canadian DOT standards with a 500-watt brushless rear motor hub engine powered by four high-powered batteries. Max speed is 35Km/h.
