We love that site here in Britain. I have four 5 star helmets
They only test helmets sold in Britain because they go to a random shop and buy random helmets.

My Schuberth C2 performed better than their C3. New models are not always an improvement on the older ones, cost cutting or poor design?

Cheers,

Re: Great helmet rating site. Find out how your helmet rates.

This is a UK based set of tests on helmets retailing in the UK.
It is an attempt to give a more wide ranging view of 'safety' that the predecessor standards and certifications.
At the end of the day it is just a raft of lab tests and of course there is only one way of emulating what happens in the real world - but there is real difficulty in rounding up volunteers.

An expert = ex is a has been and a spurt is a drip under pressure.

Re: Great helmet rating site. Find out how your helmet rates.

I have a simple rating system when it comes to helmets.

If it fits, IT"S GREAT!
