Robust testing - independent advice

Motorcyclists represent just 1% of UK traffic, but 19% of all road fatalities.
A properly fitted helmet is the best form of protection available to a motorcyclist. It can lessen the severity of injury in a crash by cushioning the blow and spreading it over a larger area of energy absorbing material (that’s the good stuff inside every motorcycle helmet).
With motorcyclists representing just 1% of UK traffic but 19% of all road fatalities, it makes sense to ensure the helmet you’re wearing offers you the greatest protection possible.
Although a minimum legal safety standard for motorcycle helmets already exists, SHARP believes motorcyclists deserve more. We offer stricter and more robust testing, independent advice, and a rating system that’s helping riders across the UK make the right choice when shopping for a helmet.
