    New multi impact Helmet

    Hello! i have done some research into multi-impact helmets and the ones i have seen only really have a life of upto 6 hits before needing replacing, i know this is better then the standard helmet, just wondering if there is a helmet out there which takes a lot of impacts

    I believe that due to the majority of helmet construction, EPS foam, that they are almost all 1 hit wonders.

    There is one POC helmet that is non single hit

    Please share the ones you've found that are multi hit and what constitutes a "hit"

    Even POC’s “multiple impact” EPP liner seems geared to the fact that a single crash is likely to result in multiple impacts- as your head bounces, or you slide into something, for example. IMO any foam-based helmet is good for one event significant enough for you to say “I’m glad I was wearing a helmet.”

    I have came across a new company called Hedkayse today whilst looking around - new tech helmet which can be smashed around as many times as possible.

    Amazing that you seem to be looking for something and you just happened to stumble across a new company that markets it.

    And doubly amazing that in the only other thread you've posted in, you were looking for a helmet with a different characteristic that also just happens to be satisfied by this company's new product.

    Amazing I say!

    Edit: Wait, further amazement. Another thread asking for a different thing and another recommendation for the same product. My amazement never ceases.

    Very cool to see people talking about smaller impacts.
    We know that 80% of our impacts are below 100 G’s so its good to see this be a focus.

    All helmets pass the same massive impact standard...what is more important to me is how early a helmet begins to dissipate energy. Sub Concussive impact.

    Skate helmets are built to take multiple impacts. They have a much thicker shell and also harder EPS, I think. They are designed for slower and lower crashes than a bicycle helmet. There's no listed number of hits, but you're still supposed to get rid of them if they're obviously broken.
