Snell Memorial Foundation recently revealed an updated list of Snell-certified M2005 motorcycle helmets, what the organization considers the highest levels of head protection.
Snell’s M2005 Standard presents methods for identifying motorcycle helmet models which meet specified standards for impact protection and retention system strength. Manufacturers voluntarily submit helmets to be tested to this standard and if the submitted helmets pass, a certification is issued.
Helmets tested are in the same condition as those offered for sale. Five complete helmets are submitted by the manufacturer for a certification test program for each distinct structural configuration of the models offered for sale. Four of the samples are destroyed in testing, the fifth is retained for comparison and reference.
Read the September 4 issue of Powersports Business magazine to learn which manufacturers and models were on Snell’s most recent list.
