Government SHARP motorcycle helmet test results revealed

Published: 12 June 2008

The Government has finally revealed the results of its SHARP motorcycle helmet tests - a five-star rating system to reveal just how safe a helmet is.

Although the initial results are restricted to a limited number of full-face helmets, over the coming weeks and months the Department for Transport, which operates the scheme, plans to rate every helmet on sale in the UK.

As MCN revealed last month, the Arai RX7 Corsair - the most expensive helmet tested - gets only three stars out of five, while top-rated five star lids include the Lazer LZ76, which costs just £59.99!

Check the full results below to see how your helmet did, and see next week's MCN for full details of the test and reactions to the incredible results.

You can now buy many of the helmets tested online through MCN's new Shopping section. Click the buy now link to get all the info on the lid and get the best selection of prices.

Is your helmet rated? Let us know what you think of the new test by leaving a comment at the bottom of the page.
