A helmet is as important as your motorcycle, especially for protection against injury in the event of an accident. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or a beginner, buying the right helmet is necessary for your safety on the road. With the establishment of the far-reaching trade agreements and robust e-commerce infrastructure, it is possible to buy an excellent anime helmet online and have it shipped to your doorstep. However, it is critical to consider the level of protection that your chosen helmet offers.

While helmet standards differ from one jurisdiction to another, thorough motorcycle helmets international safety standards comparison of the various standards will help you determine the right fit for your needs. For instance, if you’re a fast rider in a high-traffic highway, it essential to opt for a helmet that meets first-rate impact protection, to defend against fatal injuries in the event of a crush.

Top-rate helmet safety standards

Below is a comprehensive list of motorcycle helmets international safety standards comparison and their specifications:

AS/NZS 1698: The standard for protective helmets in both Australia and New Zealand

UN/ECE 22.05: The standard for safety helmets in Europe

Snell M2010: The safety standard for helmets in the USA

Snell 2005: The helmet certification for safety in the USA

JIS T 8133: The safety standard for helmets in Japan

Motorcycle helmets international safety standards comparison

Although there is no conclusive comparison of these standards from both the national and international level, the specifications of each standard affect the overall performance of helmets in the prevention of head injury for Powered Two Wheelers.

The top reason for considering the helmets with the best performance in the mitigation of the risk severe head injury during an injury is at the heart of road safety, your protection and your loved ones while riding. Motorcycle accidents claim the lives of thousands of lives year to year, up to 4, 976 riders died in crashes in 2016, for example.

Furthermore, the available data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) suggests that there’s a higher prevalence of motorcycle accidents than other motor vehicles. In turn, manufacturers have adopted more effective safety standards in the manufacture and testing of helmets.

However, you’re not limited to selecting helmets with standards from your country of residence. You’ll find the performance levels of helmets certified by standards of a foreign country are reliable and even better than local standards.

For example, the ECE 22.05 standard in Europe has more comprehensive testing requirements than the American DOT standard. Therefore, if you need a helmet with greater impact protection, choose a helmet from a country with the superior performance level. For instance, the JIS standard or the AS/NZS 1698 standard with low sever impact levels of 11.5 and 84.4, respectively.  As such, you’ll have made a worthwhile investment for your safety while riding in a high-risk environment in which severe energy impact may put you at risk of a concussion or skull injury.

The Ultimate Guide to Motorcycle Helmet Safety Standards & Comparisons

Published on September 5, 2018, by in For You, Must-Reads.

http://www.mobile01.com/userinfo.php?id=1410808

The only reason we buy and wear motorcycle helmets is for safety. But safety standards for motorcycle helmets are inconsistent. Will the cute anime helmet you bought for your daughter withstand the impact of a lay-down on a concrete road? What about the helmet your brother wears for off-roading and dirt-biking? In a motorcycle helmets international safety standards comparison, some helmets don’t provide the safety you need.

Motorcycle Helmets International Safety Standards Comparison

…The subject of motorcycle helmet safety standards is highly complex, so it’s no wonder the general riding public is confused.Web Bike World

U.S. motorcycle helmets may have a specific shell construction or thickness to allow it to pass the Department of Transportation (DOT)  penetration test. The Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) may have different standards.

Some manufacturers include a DOT/ECE Standards sticker, which means the helmet meets both safety standards, even though the ECE has tougher requirements. Some declare the ECE label can only be applied to helmets sold in European countries, so how can a helmet have an ECE/DOT label in France? It’s because there are global/international inconsistencies in manufacturing, distribution, and sales of motorcycle helmets. Monitoring is minimal.

Other countries with motorcycle safety standards include:

  • Australia – AS 1698-2006
  • Brazil – NBR 7471
  • Canada – CSA CAN3-D230-M85
  • India – IS 4151
  • Japan – SG/JIS
  • Korea – KS G 7001
  • Malaysia – SIRIM
  • New Zealand – NZ 5430
  • Singapore – PSB
  • Taiwan – CNS (compatible to JIS)
  • Thailand – TIS

Obviously, safety standards vary from country to country. For now, your own research is needed to determine if a motorcycle helmet meets or beats your country’s standards.

Non-Government, Independent Safety Standards

In the U.S., we also have Snell Memorial Foundation safety requirements for motorcycle helmets. Where the DOT sets minimum safety standards for helmets, Snell criteria generally meets higher impact standards. “DOT certification is done on the honor system,” says Snell. “The helmet’s manufacturer determines whether his helmets satisfy DOT and then claims the qualification for himself. There is not even a reporting requirement.” Much of the U.S. government’s focus has been to restrict “beanie” helmets, which are pointedly substandard and usually worn by helmet-law protestors.

The United Kingdom also has independent motorcycle helmets safety standards organizations:

  • ACU Gold
  • BSI (British Standards Institution)
  • SHARP

Need for a ‘Harmonized Standard’

African motorcycle helmets must withstand extreme heat and humidity. They need a safe ventilation system that can prevent riders themselves from overheating. In the Northeast U.S. and Canada, where temperatures can dip into below-freezing, helmets should have better insulation and the potential for warmth.

The need for harmonized, international safety standards should address climate and situational needs. Obviously, professional motorcycle competitors in controlled environments have helmet safety standards that differ from a desert dirt biker’s helmet.

Buying Style – and Safety – is Your Goal

Here’s the bottom line: Always abide by the laws of your federal and state government. It’s okay to buy a motorcycle helmet online if its safety standards meet or are higher than your country’s standards.

With some of the artistic options available, it’s also okay to express yourself! Just know that your Thor helmet with Viking horns will capture the attention of traffic police more than a “standard” motorcycle helmet. As long as your motorcycle helmet meets safety standards, you are free to travel the country in style! 3553895687_939d97fcd6_o

Starting this year with writing down your daily bliss every day!

Published on June 27, 2017, by in For You, Must-Reads.

aiueo-sticker01

てちょう Techou, meaning hand-written notebook, originated in Japan.

It is said that everyone in Japan carries a handbook, recording a life plan anytime, anywhere

It has even derived from this a “handwriting philosophy” in Japan.

Seen enough of beautifully-decorated and written planners or handbooks in afternoon tea parties with your girl friends, if you want to start a good-looking, intelligent inside out, cute new life, let’s start by making our planners attractive now!

So exactly what types of planners are available out there?

NO.1 weekly planner

11-2 1-3

If you just need to plan life, the weekly plan can meet your needs. It helps you break down your annual targets into monthly, weekly & daily goals & tasks, simple & clear. With simple text and some small patterns, it makes dry day-records become more agile and lovely!

1-4You see, just learn to draw some small icons, the simple records become very interesting ~

1-5 1-6 1-7 1-8

 

NO.2 Daily planner

22

If you wish to make your daily events or experiences a detailed record, it is suitable to use a daily plan. Every day a page, with a graphic way to tell the story of the day. Keep doing it for a year, when you look back after a year, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment and it’s GREAT!

23

Speaking of the daily planner or handbook, one has to mention the Japanese brand Hobonichi. Every year September is a festival for the handbook lovers,  because this is when Hobonichi starts the pre-sale of the handbooks for the next year.

24

The Hobonichi daily planner cover and refills pages are sold separately. The cover comes in a lot of choices every year.

25 26 27 2829

Inside pages also come in selections of full-year pages, pages within the page, English pages and so on.

30

Year pages

31

English pages

32

If you are a member of the gang, you will be attracted to them! With these dated hand-book, you can easily record everyday events. The biggest feature is the paper that is even though thin yet not easy to see through. And the diary-drawing experience is perfect ~

33

But its downside is the price. It’s way too expensive and you must keep writing every day, otherwise seeing the empty pages will make you go nuts ~

37

NO.3 100-day planner

4

The 100-day planner comes with a pie chart that allows you to divide the allocation of time to sections and color them by pens

4-1

It’s most suitable for short-term goals setting & plan. As from the color division of sections, you can clearly see if your allocation of time is appropriate.

4-3

Imagine, in the adherence to 100 days, when you complete the plan, this planner will be full of traces of your efforts.

NO.4 Inspirational notebook

5-1

If you are the type of person who bursts of inspirations, you need to put such a loose book in the bag, and pen down your inspirations at any time!

5-3

Each page can be a different field of inspiration. And with the loose-leaf design, after returning home, you can re-arrange the loose pages by categories, making it a theme-oriented inspirational notebook.

Well sharing so much about the contents of different planners, we just hope that everyone find some time to ponder, to reflect on their own and to keep a record of one’s daily events every day.

In 2017 and the years ahead, we wish you all lots of good luck!5-4
