They will include these results in their helmet comfort rating system.
The survey asks riders to rate helmets on seven factors:
Visor’s ability to resist fogging up
Ability to seal out moisture
Noise inside helmet
Ventilation inside helmet
Aerodynamic neck loading (a wind tunnel test)
CRASH is run by a consortium of government agencies, insurance companies and the Australian Motorcycle Council to provide riders with independent and consistent information on the levels of protection from injury in a crash provided by motorcycle helmets and the comfort level of the helmet.
It is similar to the comprehensive British SHARP helmet safety scheme which has tested and rated hundreds of helmets.
But they don’t rate comfort which can be just as important as safety because a helmet that is not comfortable can be a distraction that could cause a crash.
Of particular interest in Australia is the ability to keep your head cool in our oppressive summer heat and humidity.
Sadly it is nearly impossible to test the comfort of a helmet in a shop.
