Attachments Mounted onto an Approved Motorcycle Helmet

There has been a growing demand for fitting aftermarket attachments onto motorcycle helmets. A recent study aimed to determine whether mounting two types of attachments – a video camera and a Bluetooth communications device – affected motorcycle helmet compliance with design standards. A series of tests were conducted and the results indicated that in some cases, attaching the devices caused the helmet to fail one of the tests specified in a number of design standards. A further study now underway is investigating how this relates to an increased risk of injury to the wearer in a crash.
