Helmet question ? SS700

Hi guys. I just bought a SS700 Go for the Broke helmet. The helmet looks very nice. Clean design , black mat. Its light and pretty comfortable. My concern is that it is only DOT approved ... :/ so i don't know how "safe" it is. I researched little bit and I've heard it's much better if it's SNELL 2010 and DOT approved . Snell tests their helmets for greater impacts. So my question is- do u think I should sell it and buy SNELL and DOT approved helmet for like 130$ (something like Bell Vortex Seige which meets both standarts) or should I keep the 60$ SS helmet ?
