Sylvain Guintoli backs HEAD safety device

1 of 1

British Superbike new comer, Sylvain Guintoli, has backed a new helmet safety device designed to eliminate potential spinal injuries caused by accidents on the road and the track.

The Helmet Emergency Access Device (H.E.A.D) has been designed to allow medics access to the rider’s airways, avoiding having to remove the helmet even when unconscious which could cause serious spinal injuries.

The lone Crescent Suzuki rider for 2009 said: "I was invited to see this project a few months back and was immediately impressed by the concept.

“It's a hugely delicate situation when a rider suffers an accident and with this process the chances of spinal injury or worse are dramatically reduced.

“I'm hoping those that see the H.E.A.D system in demonstration will be as impressed as I am."

MCN will be attending the product launch later this week, so more information will follow soon.
