Bell Racing USA
–New Helmet Product Line for 2014
•The 8860 or “super helmet” standard was developed by the FIA to improve overall helmet performance and safety and is known as the most severe racing helmet standard in the world. The FIA8860 specification requires the helmet to be certified to the Snell SA standard plus pass an additional single impact from 5 meters to help protect against more massive impacts and withstand a special shell hardness test to help prevent objects from penetrating the shell. Bell was the first helmet company to introduce an FIA8860 certified model in 2004. Since the initial introduction, Bell’s HP helmets have been constantly improved and the current models are a direct result of intense research and development and close collaboration with the world’s best drivers, teams and testing facilities. Test results show that in certain impacts, the Bell HP helmets absorb up to 40% more energy than standard models.–Product Innovations
