Helmet Safety

For those who have not seen this website : https://sharp.dft.gov.uk/ they have safety tested and compared several hundreds of helmets. What is notable is just because a helmet cost nearly the equivalent of house payment doesn't make it safe. e.g. Schuberth S1 Pro has a 2 star safety rating. While a Bell M1 (4x cheaper) has a 5 star rating.

It does seem that a lot of bargain basement helmets have a poor rating and more expensive helmets do well, but that isn't always the case as noted above.


Yes, there is an 7 year old thread about this, but the website has greatly expanded since then.
