Helmet Certifications Explained + Helmet History in Our Article
 
Wearing a proper helmet is the most effective way of protecting your head in case of a crash. To make sure that the helmet is able to provide the required level of protection in any given extreme situation, it is subjected to a series of tests to be certified according to one of the several known certification standards. Different countries have their own demands on the quality and properties of the helmet depending on local motorcycle laws and riding conditions.

Each of the certification standards involves different testing procedures that also vary in their intensity. Our resident technical expert and writer Timothy Zahl wrote this article on the differences between DOT, ECE, SHARP, and SNELL helmet certifications.
