[sportrider - latest stories] - Finally — Someone Has Broken The Helmet Mold

Finally — Someone Has Broken The Helmet Mold

It looks like someone finally decided to confront the elephant in the helmet showroom.In my column back in the August 2010 issue of Sport Rider, I bemoaned the fact that despite rapid advances in design and manufacturing technology, the basic structural design of helmets has remained the same for more than 50 years. Sure, there’s been plenty of innovations such as internal venting, anti-fogging faceshields, and better aerodynamics. But the helmet’s basic architecture — an expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam liner encased in a polycarbonate or fiberglass-based hard outer shell — hasn’t really changed much since the crash helmet’s inception back in the ‘50s. Add to that safety standards that have either remained the same one-size-fits-all or until recently followed an arbitrary raise-the-pass-level strategy every handful of years, and you have a product design that has become quite stagnant.
