Different Helmet Certifications and Helmet History in One Article



Wearing a proper, safe helmet is mandatory in most states and territories since this is the most effective type of rider’s protection that can prevent severe injuries to the head in case of an accident. Different countries have their own demands on the quality and properties of the helmet. All helmets must be certified. There are many certifications today, each of which involves different testing procedures or their intensity.

Our resident technical writer Timothy Zahl has created this article covering the differences between DOT, ECE, SHARP, and SNELL helmet certifications.
