All Origine helmets meet the highest quality and modern approval of European standards, which are certified according to ECE 22-05 approval directives. The tests were carried out at the TUV institutes in Germany (E1), IDIADA in Spain (E9) and OMEGA in Italy (E11).
This specific approval involves two main tests: The undercut test, which measures the value of helmet rotation in the fall phase of the simulation. In this test, the hull is connected to a mass of 10 kg to a steel rope. It is placed at 50 cm in height and dropped onto a special support that quantifies the steering data by transferring the values to an analysis system that allows or less the shape of the hull shape and, consequently, safety Relative.
The impact test determines the shock absorption by the impact of the current registry to undergo laboratory shock tests. Guided in free fall on a fixed steel anvil and a predetermined speed of impact, five points of the outer shell are controlled by recording two fundamental values:
A) The maximum acceleration, highlighting the acceleration suffered the impact (max 275 g) in the center of gravity of the false head.
B) HIC (Head Injuries Criterion) or the average acceleration time at which the false head is subject (a maximum of 2400 points).
The international approval mark consists of a circle within which the letter E is followed by the distinguishing number identifying the country of approval (1 = Germany, 2 = France, Italy 3 = 4 = Netherlands, etc.). A first group of numbers "051" 598 corresponding to the type approval, the first two numbers of this series "05" indicate the series of modifications of Regulation 22, under which the homologation of the hull was granted. The letter below indicates the type of helmet protection: "J" if the helmet does not have a chin guard; "P" if the helmet has a protective chin rest; "NP" if the helmet has a non-protective chin guard. A second series of numbers "0010000" corresponding to the progressive production.
