Caberg helmets were put to the test in the UK Government's SHARP helmet safety program. The helmets were put through 32 impact tests before being awarded a SHARP rating. The tests assessed how well each helmet could protect the brain in the event of a crash.
SHARP came into being in 2007, after the Department for Transport found real differences in the safety performance of motorcycle helmets available in the UK. While all helmets have to meet minimum safety standards, research showed that up to 50 lives could be saved each year if motorcyclists wore the safest helmets available to them.
Taking the best bits from current standards around the world, SHARP raises the bar – putting motorcycle helmets through a more rigorous and targeted testing process. Thanks to a simple five star scoring system, SHARP provides motorcyclists with independent and objective advice, revealing the different safety performances of UK motorcycle helmets.
The Caberg V2RR, V2407 and Konda (formally called Trip) rated 5 out of a possible 5 stars.
The Justissimo was given a 4 star rating, while the new Ego helmets are still waiting to be tested.
