Short Piece on Motorcycle Helmet History and Differences in Certification



First attempts to protect riders’ heads were made at ht beginning of the last century when motorcycles became faster and accidents more common. Early motorcycle helmets were made of thick leather. They were light and offered decent abrasion protection. As bikes became more powerful and fast, the number of head injuries increased, which is why one of the leading British neurosurgeons of the time offered to add another hard layer of protection to the helmet in the form of a shell.

To learn more about helmet history you can read in the full article at the link below. All modern helmets are certified, which ensures that each model can provide the required level of protection for the user. Different states and jurisdictions have different demands for helmet safety, which is why helmet testing procedures vary. If you want to know more about impact tests, roll-off tests, shell penetration tests, and other testing procedures, click the link below.
