Bicycle Helmet Standards

Local cyclist Len Gisbon has have created a link (Located at the bottom of this Post) which gives a comparative analysis of all internationally known regulatory standards on the subject of Bicycle Helmets. You may well see information that you didn’t know existed on the subject; review the Index listing.
Respecting the key point on the age of helmets- there is only one (1) standard - SNELL - that specifically mentions a date and that is five (5) years. All other standards emphasize “AFTER A CRASH” as the Replacement Interval.
Only buy/use a bicycle helmet manufactured to a known standard, wear it properly, and ride safely!
