The helmet is impact tested with two 5kg strikers: a hemispherical striker is dropped from 2m onto the crown of the helmet and a flat striker from 500mm on to the front, rear and side by tilting the headform to 30°. In all cases, the transmitted force through the neck of the headform must not exceed 10kN.
Two penetration tests with a 3kg pointed striker are also performed within on any point around the shell of the helmet without making contact with the headform. Exceeds the shock absorption and impact tests of AS/NZS 1801 and EN397. Non-releasing chinstrap F >500N so the helmet is retained on the head during a tumbling fall or multi-impacts.
