DIN EN 1077:2007


Helmets for alpine skiers and swowboarders; German version EN 1077:2007 (Foreign Standard)

This European Standard specifies minimum performance requirements and tests for helmets for alpine skiers and for snowboarders, including children and participants in competitions. The standard comprises two different classes of protection; class A and class B. Although the experience of the existing standard for alpine skiers is very good, it has become more and more obvious that there is a need for an alternative standard that can meet the demand from snowboarders and similar groups. Class B is slightly less restrictive and can therefore accommodate more ventilation and comfort without sacrificing too much of protection. Requirements and the corresponding methods of test, where appropriate, are given for the following: construction including field of vision, shock absorbing properties, resistance to penetration, retention system properties, marking and information.
