Certified vs Non-Certified Helmets

Kevin Reimer has been rocking hard shell skate helmets for as long as I can remember.  They don’t look quite as cool as the lighter soft foam lids but there’s a reason why he’s been touting them for so many years.  Knowledge is key. This video (with clips at 4000fps), which he posted on his Facebook page, should help explain why it’s so important to consider your investment before you buy.  It could save your life.

“To: all you fools with the foam helmets. Think about what you wear. There’s a reason I have a huge white helmet when I freeride and get gnarly freeriding.”

ARF Presents: Certified vs Non-Certified Bicycle Helmet Impact Test.. Come along with pro riders Mike Clark, Brandon Dosch and Chad Kerley. This video shows without a doubt the tremendous difference in protection between certified and non certified helmets. We tried to simplify the physics as much as possible but the results are undeniable. Make sure if you are riding BMX you are wearing the proper protection. It could mean the difference between riding again or not.
