Every rider needs to be prepared and protected.

Helmets have undergone a huge transformation over the last century. From early designs focused on mere wind protection, to the modern variations we see today – helmet designers have worked out what works and what doesn’t. Most importantly, a good-quality and well-designed helmet has become an invaluable staple for motorcyclists.

HELMET REGULATIONS

Australia has rigorous safety standards and requirements for motorcycle helmets. And rightly so –  helmets can be the difference between life and death. Even the most skilled rider knows that to protect themselves from serious injury, appropriate head protection is a vital necessity. Whilst helmets are obviously not a magic solution to the risks involved with motorcycle riding, they can make the most crucial of differences in the case of an unfortunate accident.

Before 2016, BMW Motorrad was unable to deliver a full range of helmets to Australian riders, based on current standards and regulations surrounding motorcycle helmets. However, times have changed. Australia has approved the use of helmets based on the regulations of the United Nations Economic Commission of Europe (UNECE), and Australian approved helmets will now comply with ECE 22-05 Regulation laws. UN Regulation No. 22 is the most widely respected and used regulation in the world, endorsed by more than 50 countries.

All BMW Helmets comply with ECE 22-05.

“Any helmet is better than no helmet” is a common phrase offered by motorcyclists. Whilst it is true that head protection is vital to riding, a poor-quality helmet may give riders a false sense of protection, and in the event of a crash, provide inadequate protection resulting in injury and even death. A high-quality, innovative and safe helmet is an investment, one of which is crucial for all serious riders.

SAFTEY AND INNOVATION

The BMW Helmet range is one of the safest and most diverse on the market, offering protective equipment for all riders, whether they prefer off-road or on-road riding. Helmets are available in a variety of technologies, colours and styles, and most importantly, offer the vital protection needed for all facets of motorcycle riding. Featuring a mix of innovative technologies and comfort to enhance riding experience, BMW Helmets are focused on the importance of safety and protection for all riders.
