Motorcycle Helmet History and Differences in Certification Explained in Our Article



First motorcycle helmets were invented over a century ago at the beginning of World War I. Riders needed something better than a simple hat for protection since motorcycles became faster and more powerful, and accidents were resulting in serious injuries. At first, helmets were made out of pieces of thick leather, which offered almost no protection from impacts at high speed. One of the leading British neurosurgeons studied many cases of rider head injuries and came up with a brilliant idea of a hard shell helmet to prevent penetration in a crash.

You can learn more about the history of a motorcycle helmet, test procedures performed by the specialists to make sure that each of the helmet models can protect the head properly, and what are the differences between DOT, ECE, SHARP, and SNELL helmet certifications, click the link below and read an article written by our tech specialist and author Timothy Zahl.
