KBC Helmet

Hi everyone

This has prob been asked before but cannot find any full info anywhere, anyway I have purchased a new KBC VR 2R helmet it has a gold sticker on it, but that's about it bar some number sewing into the strap with a E4 and the number on it.

What I'm wondering is although this helmet has got a gold BMS sticker on it does it not have to have ECE/BSI info on it?

Any help advice appreciated

The E4 on the strap is all you need these days i think, gold stickers etc dont really mean anything

KBC Tarmac

Had the same concern after buying my KBC Tarmac (VR). After much research found that ECE 22.05 is the european standard, and the E4 is the country of manufacture of the helmet which subscribes to the standard.

Rest easy!

BTW they are a good bargain lid aren't they?

KBC

Gold Stickers generally mean that its ACU approved which can be used on track days...
