Recently in the UK a fraudulent Snell/FIA CMR2007 labelled helmet was found. The helmet also had a British Standard BS6658:1985 label attached to the side of the helmet.
The issues here are:
- There is no duel helmet approval with both the British Standard and the Snell/FIA standard. In fact the BS6658;1985 standard expired in September 2016.
- The helmet shown does not appear to be from the same manufacture as the Snell/FIA label shows.
The full list of Snell/FIA CMR certified helmets can be found on the CIK website: http://www.cikfia.com/regulations/technical
Competitors should be wary of where they are purchasing helmets from and only buy from a reputable source.
