How to spot a fake helmet

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Can somebody post links?
POC Trabec Octal MTB Helmet Raceday Aero Road Cycling Ultralight Mountain Bike | eBay

The Octal is the road helmet.
The Trabec is the MTB helmet.

Ironically, this is labeled as both and is available in none of the colors POC has ever sold.

They're also $45...quite the steal for a $120-$200 helmet.
