Read our Article on Helmet History, Testing, and Certification



The first motorcycle helmets were introduced at the beginning of the last century when motorcycles began to develop higher speeds and riding became much more dangerous. The first prototypes were sewn from flaps of thick leather, which offered some abrasion protection and provided almost no impact protection in the case of a crash. Puzzled by the influx of injured motorcycle riders with head traumas, British neurosurgeon Hugh Cairns offered additional protection for the head in the form of a hard shell. This revolutionary solution is used to this day saving thousands of motorcyclists’ lives each year.
