SHARP PASSES THE 400 HELMET SAFETY RATINGS MILESTONE
December 13 2016.



SHARP has published safety ratings for the HJC FG ST and Bell Star helmets, taking the total number that have
been rated by SHARP to 401.


Since the launch of SHARP in 2007, more than 13,000 impact tests have been carried out to generate the 401 safety ratings.

Providing this safety information is likely to have contributed to a 38 per cent drop in motorcyclist fatalities since 2007.

Road safety Minister Andrew Jones said: “We have some of the safest roads in the world, but we are determined to do more to improve safety for all road users including motorcyclists.

“SHARP rates hundreds of helmets based on thousands of tests and provides riders with the best safety information available.

“The confidence riders put in the ratings shows how vitally important they are in helping reduce the number of tragedies we see on our roads."
