This super-light helmet is a cyclists joy. Made from impact resistant EPS it weighs in at a featherlight 260g and will fit almost any sized head. EPS is an ideal material for cyclists safety because of the way it undergoes an energy-absorbing compression when subjected to severe impact. of course, after that it should be replaced – but it’s then done its job and saved your life. This helmet is qualified to standard EN1078-2012+A:2012 – we have included details under the ‘Description’ tab below.

Safety Certification

We made sure that our helmets are safety certified before putting them on sale. Our manufacturer produced proof that the helmets have been tested according to the following standard:- EN1078-2012+A:2012.

Here is a brief outline of what this standard is all about:

EN 1078 requires that helmets are subjected to a range of pre-treatments before testing. These pre-treatments include exposure to high temperatures (50ºC), sub-zero temperatures (-20ºC) and artificial ageing against sunlight using a high intensity xenon lamp to rapidly simulate weeks of sunlight. The number of samples required for testing depends on the claimed or marked size range of the helmet. Four helmets must be submitted for each head-form size specified. Out of each set of four helmets, three helmets are tested and one reserved in case a test needs to be repeated.

For example, for a helmet claimed to fit size 59-61cm heads, only four helmets would be required for testing, whereas for a helmet claiming to fit size 59-63cm heads, eight helmets would be required. This is because, in the second case, two head-forms are needed to cover this size range.

Impact testing must be carried out on a drop rig using instrumented head-forms incorporating tri-axial accelerometers. Both a flat anvil and a kerbstone anvil are used. The drop height for the head-form with the flat anvil is nominally 1,500mm, which is theoretically what is needed to achieve an impact velocity of 5.42m/s. With the kerbstone anvil, the head-form drop height is a nominal 1,064mm, which is required for an impact velocity of 4.57m/s. In each impact, the resultant deceleration of the head-form must not exceed 250g (where g = 9.81m/s2).

All impacts must be carried out inside the defined protective coverage area. The impacts are carried out in a set order. For example, helmets subjected to the high temperature conditioning are impacted on the kerbstone anvil first and then on the flat anvil. The centres of any impacts must be no closer together than 150mm.

The test house must, in each series of tests, ensure that all perceived weak areas of the helmet are impact tested (provided they are within the test area). Typical weak areas could include anchorage points for retention systems or ventilation slots. In particular when testing with the kerbstone anvil, test houses should position the head-form/helmet with no restriction on the orientation of any ventilation slots compared to the long axis of the anvil. However, for helmets with very long and wide slots it is prudent to check that the kerbstone anvil cannot make contact with the surface of the head-form through a slot so as to avoid damaging equipment during testing.

There are two test procedures for the retention system, each with its own requirements. The retention system strength test is designed to ensure that under a dynamic loading situation the retention system will not stretch nor slip significantly and can be unfastened after any incident. The retention system effectiveness test aims to ensure that the helmet will remain on the head when subjected to a sudden rotational force.
