FIM PIONEERS OBLIQUE TESTING FOR HELMETS    
FIM Press Release - October 13, 2017

The FIM Technical and Circuit Racing Commissions are very proud to announce the launch of the new FIM Racing Homologation Programme (FRHP) for helmets.

Up to now, the FIM has referred solely to existing international standards for the approval of helmets for use in its competitions. The FIM Racing Homologation Programme for helmets now features the latest state of art of testing methods and sets more innovative and demanding requirements to be met, in addition to compliance with international standards. This homologation will be a mandatory prerequisite to be entitled to access FIM competitions, starting with Circuit Racing in 2019.

The helmet response to medium severity oblique impacts, among others, will be assessed in FIM approved laboratories such as the Impact Laboratory of the University of Zaragoza. The oblique test constitutes the most novel and modern aspect of the testing method and reflects a very common scenario occurring in accidents, although never addressed in international standards so far.



Vito Ippolito, FIM President: "The homologation will allow the FIM to ensure a more complete and high-end protection for its riders and in particular to better track and control helmets used in FIM competitions. The FIM is also hopeful that the new testing protocol will serve as an inspiration for disciplines other than Circuit Racing, and cascade to international standards for road use."

Cristiano Silei, Dainese Group CEO: "In Dainese Group we constantly endeavor to increase the safety of our AGV helmets. The introduction by the FIM of a standard which entails oblique impacts represents a giant leap in this direction."

Alban Rojas, SHARK Helmets Research & innovation manager: "SHARK Helmets has promoted motorcycle racing as a focus of brand development ever since its creation. Our brand's ethos is always to push the technical boundaries and innovate to ensure the highest level of protection for all riders. We are very proud to work close with the FIM Racing Homologation Programme for helmets."

Xavier Cadens, MatGroup R+D+I Manager: "A step forward on helmet safety at a global level".

Robert Reisinger, 6D Helmets Director of Engineering: "6D Helmets is excited to see advancements in a formal test standard that incorporates rotational testing and lower energy mitigation that the FIM has developed. We look forward to future advancements in helmet testing definitions and the positive results that it will bring for consumers and racers alike."
