Helmets


Recommended Posts

Some light on a recent finding.

 

There has been a previous discussion on the "Helmet And Vision" thread about inserting foam pads into your helmet.

Some may have questions or have questioned compromising protection.

 

I generally use Shark helmets and have put in a 2 layers of cloth into the forhead liner to alleviate a vision problem when prone, maybe my foreheads too low as everywhere else fit is VERY snug.

I now have 2 AGV GP Techs. one a very snug LRG size and one I got as a bargain in XL. Both have same shell sizes.

 

I got new large liners for the XL, swopped em out but alas, still sat very low. On stripping the LRG to see the reason, I found

that in the LRG, AGV has placed a 20mm thick low density foam pad (W 60mm x L120mm ) on the Styrafoam-type inner compression material thats run along the top

and a little behind your noggin.

 

Conclusion: Inserting low density foam + some common sense, doesnt seem to phase AGV or compromise their safety ratings.
