Exceeding the Standards
Certification is just the beginning - we strive for excellence. Our superior energy dispersion system redistributes acceleration throughout the helmet, reducing impact more effectively than any leading competitor.
3rd Party Testing
To improve our in-house impact test rig and test procedures, we consulted with a variety of third-party labs that specialise in sport specific impact scenarios. We’ve incorporated their best practices at our Redwood City testing facility.
During production, KAV helmets are subjected to a wide range of impact scenarios. To optimize protection, we assess impact absorbance depending on location, speed, head size, weight, and temperature. Additionally, each finished helmet is evaluated for non-impact related factors like head coverage, strap retention, and vent penetration.
