Low velocity impact: Helmet impact at 6m/s. Peak deceleration shall not exceed 200G with a maximum average of 180g.
Low lateral impact: Helmet impact at 8.5m/s. Peak deceleration shall not exceed 275G.
Crush: A 10kg weight falling 5.1 meters onto helmet.
Lateral and longitudinal tests. The transmitted force should not exceed 10 kN.Shell penetration: A 4kg impactor dropped onto helmet at 7.7 m/s.Visor penetration: Air rifle fires 1.2g pellet at visor. Pellet must not penetrate the interior of the helmet.
Visor coating: Transmitter test to ensure colouration and vision is not significantly changed or distorted.
