Our visor ski helmets have two of the worlds best certifications, CE EN 1077, ASTM F2040
The CE EN 1077 is the European standard for snow sports helmets including skiing and snowboarding. These standards cover provisions for field of vision, shock absorbing properties, retention system and fastening devices. While skiing or snowboarding there’s a risk of poles, skis or branches penetrating the helmet. The resistance to penetration is tested by dropping a hammer with the mass of 3 kg from 75cm onto a sharp cone shaped metal punch placed against the helmet. The most important is the shock absorbing capacity of the helmet. This is tested in a specialized instrument where the helmet is dropped at a speed of 5,42 m/s onto a solid metal anvil with a 4 kg metal head inside.
The ASTM F2040 is the United States verification, this specification defines performance requirements for helmets used in nonmotorized recreational snow sports. Although a helmet that meets this specification will help reduce the risk of some types of injuries to the head at slower speeds, the protection is limited. The user is responsible for participating in the sport within his/her abilities and the nature of the snow conditions which may vary widely. Compliance with the common sense rules of the sport’s safety, including any applicable responsibility codes, is essential to help reduce the risk of personal injury.
