2020-10-9 · Conventional helmets are tested by dropping them vertically onto a flat surface and they are designed with that testing in mind. By adding rotational protection to the helmet you add protection from those angled impacts. Impact direction: Acceleration direction: Type of injury: Conclusion: Holbourn 1943 Löwenhielm 1974, Ommaya et al. 1967,

To date, the FIM has relied on international testing standards – such as ECE 22.05 and DOT – to ensure helmets are fit for purpose. But that’s not really what those standards were meant to do. They were set up to ensure minimum standards were met for helmets used on the road – which is not really the same as having an off at 200mph at Mugello!

2020-6-17 · All helmets equipped with the MIPS technology are tested by MIPS to make sure they perform in accordance with an established, well-researched MIPS standard, under a strict set of testing …

2020-2-12 · As of 1 January 2020, the use of helmets approved to FIM homologation standards is mandatory in all FIM Endurance World Championship and Endurance World Cup races. A homologated helmet is identified by the FIM FRHPhe (FIM Racing Homologation Programme) label. The use of these helmets will be mandatory at the next round of the FIM EWC: the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans on 18 …

2020-11-27 · As you may already know, the new European regulation for protective helmets is starting next year and some new helmets can be submitted for FIM Homologation. As the linear tests in ECE 22.06 are identical to FRHPhe-01, these tests will not be reprocessed during Homologation tests. Only oblique and penetration tests will be required.
