A visit at the Australian website www.Crash.org.au will help choosing that next helmet.
Except from the sharp, which was set up in 2007 by the British Department of Transport, bikers have now a second option of an independent helmet evaluation, along with the reviews of magazines and websites which are naturally more subjective, targeting to on-road impression.
The Crash is a governmental helmet evaluation institute. Actually the Consumer Rating and Assessment of Safety Helmets (CRASH) is run by a consortium of government agencies and a motorist organization. The helmets rated are laboratory evaluated in terms of protection and comfort, which is a second aspect for any helmet, also quite important.
