Flat anvil impact test

In this video, we analysis the impact of a bicycle helmet when dropped on a flat impact anvil. An Accelerometer was placed to measure the peak acceleration (G-force).

CPSC Face Up Positional Stability Roll Off Test

In this video shows part of the CPSC 1203 Helmet tests, in this case, we test to see if the helmet is able to stay on a person's head. For this test an strap is hooked over the front edge of the helmet, and a 4 kg weight is dropped from a height of 0.6 [...]

CPSC Chin Strap Retention Test

Continuing with the CPSC 1203 Helmet tests, in this section, we measure the amount of stretch in the straps. In this instance, a technician attached the helmet chin straps to a 4 kg weight roller bar assembly. When the weight drops a laser measuring device collects data regarding the amount of expand the straps experienced.

Curb Anvil Impact Test

In this video, we analysis the impact of a bicycle helmet when dropped from a 1.2 meter height into a curb impact anvil. An Accelerometer was placed to measure the peak acceleration (G-force). A peak G-force inside the helmet should not exceed 300 g. in accordance of CPSC 1203.

Hemispherical Anvil Impact Test

When conducting bicycle helmets impact attenuation testing  we employ multiple anvils types. In this instance, a hemispherical impact anvil is placed at a 1.2 meter height. When using flats anvils, we perform the test dropping the helmet from a 2 meter height.

Helmet Testing

We are able to conduct a wide range of Motorcycle/Sport helmet test. In this video, we perform a Helmet Penetration test. A 3 kg pointed steel striker is dropped from a 3 meter height. The steel striker should not touch the headform inside the helmet after the drop in accordince of FMVSS 218.
