It can be to some degree, especially when it comes to marketing gimmicks, aerodynamic and high ventilated designs. But it's worth noting that the safety standards only set a minimum and some helmets perform better on impact than others. Unfortunately, the safety standards don't rate this, that is, they don't rank which helmets are safer than others ... they just all get lumped into the one group. That said, the minimum standards are pretty good for the average cyclist. Cyclist that spend a lot of time on the road, move at faster speeds or are into technical mountain biking might want a helmet that can stay in one piece under more forceful impacts.
