As we head into 2016 BE riders will be aware that they cannot compete using helmets manufactured to BSEN1384 , and instead require helmets manufactured to the intermediary standard of VG1, PAS015, ASTM F1163 or SNELL.
All helmets in the uvex range are now being manufactured and kitemarked by BSI to VG1, and will be available from all good stockists from December 2015 onwards. It is anticipated that the new revised EN1384 standard, will be available in September 2016, bringing with it a harmonised future for all riders, manufacturers and associations.
In the meantime, uvex will continue to work together with their partners, keeping people as the primary focus, developing new products for the future. Balancing their long held values of balancing the economy, ecology, and social commitment throughout many extreme sports, whilst conscientiously following their philosophy of ‘protecting people’.
