August 15, 2008, Newsletter Issue #40: Snell approved helmets present a package of protection designed to prevent head injuries.

Tip of the Week

A Snell approved motorcycle helmet will provide more protection than any other type of helmet according to statistics as long as it fits you properly.

Since the purpose of wearing a helmet is to prevent head injuries it only makes sense to do some research and then purchase the best motorcycle helmet you can afford.

Snell approved helmets have gone through rigorous testing before they have the Snell seal of approval put on them.

Approved helmets must pass an impact test, a positional stability or roll-off test, a dynamic retention test, a chin bar test, a faceshield penetration test and a flame resistance test.

The performance of a particular helmet can vary given the situation at hand and how well the helmet has been taken care of after it was purchased.

However, the fact that the Snell Foundation destroys thousands of helmets every year to make sure only the highest quality helmets receive their approval gives consumers the assurance that once a helmet has met the rigorous standards of the Snell Foundation that they are purchasing the safest helmet on the market.

Remember, in a crash, the only thing protecting your head is the properly fitting helmet you are wearing.
