In order to obtain full official certification, the GPA helmets must successively undergo a series of tests. Explanations : ROUND ANVIL TEST Objective : to verify the even distribution of the shockwave in order to limit the risks of traumatism.
The GPA response : the helmet's outer shell absorbs and distributes the impact of the shockwave around the inner lining of the helmet
POINTED ANVIL TEST Objective : to verify that a sharp object will not pierce the helmet
The GPA response : the helmet's outer shell ensures the maximum of resistance thanks to the use of highly resistant materials (e.g. carbon is 11 times more solid than steel). The inner shell lining also plays a role in absorbing the shockwave.
HELMET RETENTION TEST Objective : to verify that the helmet stays on in the event of a fall and that the harness strap system is not too long.
The GPA response : the helmet's harness strap system is anchored by 4 rivets and uses a self-locking buckle (Dual-Lock).
VISOR TEST Objective : to verify the flexibility of the visor to prevent nasal fracture in the event of a fall.
The GPA response : the visors of the helmets are flexible, and some models even propose a visor that will detach in a fall The GPA requirements are so demanding that the results of the helmet tests are on average 20% higher than the results recommended by the standard. GPA also has private tests carried out by the leading Italian laboratories to ensure your optimum safety.
