Snell is experienced
. Snell has been setting standards and testing helmets since the late 1950’s.
Snell is independent. By policy, Snell’s directors and staff members take no financial interest or employment with the helmet industry nor do they accept any gifts.
Snell is capable. The Snell laboratory submits to regular audits and has been accredited to ISO laboratory standards since the late 1990’s.
Snell is more demanding
than any of the current national and internationals standards for motorcycle helmets. We look for all the protection a rider might reasonably wear. Since even this level of protection might not be enough, surely no rider ought to wear any less.
Snell certification is more than high standards; it is testing
. Helmets are certified only after meeting all test requirements at the Snell lab. Then, samples of certified helmets sold to consumers are bought randomly from retailers for more compliance testing. Snell certified helmets
means high impact management and premium head protection.
