Is Uvex a good brand?

All in all I am impressed with Uvex, their products are good looking and effortless with a bit of cycling class about them. Coming from Ski products they blend well into the 2 wheel variety of items required to encourage people to get on their bikes and ride, and in reality, riding your bike is all that really matters.

How long is a DOT approved helmet good for?

Yes, your helmet does have a lifespan, and a fairly short one at that. The industry standard states that the lifespan of a motorcycle helmet is five years. That is as long as you have not cut its life short by an accident or impact to it. If that happens you should definitely not use it, time to trash it!

Yes, motorcycle helmets do have definite expiration dates and could become less effective in the event of an auto accident. Ask yourself these questions to determine whether or not it’s time for a replacement.

Are old motorcycle helmets safe?

Helmet manufacturers recommend that you replace your helmet 3 to 5 years from the ‘date of manufacture’. Helmet replacement is also endorsed by the Snell Memorial Foundation which recommends that “motorcycle helmets be replaced after five (5) years of first use, or less if the manufacturer so recommends.”

How do I know if my motorcycle helmet is still good?

Check in with your head. “Typically, you know if the helmet took a good hit, because a good hit to the helmet is a good hit to the head,” Parks says. “Just even the sound of the impact or the way your head felt—like if you hit hard enough to see stars—can tell you if the helmet should be replaced.”

What’s better Snell or ECE?

Snell certification involves more rigorous and more extensive testing which would suggest it is the better motorcycle helmet standard. ECE certification is the most up-to-date current standard and it is recognized in most countries. The ECE testing and overall requirements are more rigorous than DOT testing.

Is Snell safer than ECE?

For this reason, ECE helmets are largely considered to be the safer standard over DOT or Snell. In addition, the ECE also tests 50 helmets, which mitigates the risk of defective helmets slipping through. Also, unlike the DOT standard, manufacturers cannot self-certify.
