Snell M2025 Helmets Coming This Fall

Every five years, Snell Standards are reviewed and updated.

Since 1957, Snell Foundation, a not-for-profit independent helmet standards organization, has operated its laboratory in California to conduct certification testing of helmets voluntarily submitted by manufacturers around the world. Helmets already certified by Snell are purchased randomly from retailers and tested continuously to verify performance compliance. 

Every five years, Snell Standards are reviewed and updated periodically to reflect new scientific findings and available technology and to demand more on helmet’s protectiveness. The Snell M2025D and M2025R, issued in November 2023, are the latest motorcycle helmet standards designed to provide enhanced head protection, exceeding the minimum requirements set by mandatory government standards. Specifically, M2025D aligns with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, while the M2025R aligns with the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) regulations.

A notable addition to the Snell M2025 standards is the oblique impact test, which evaluates a helmet’s ability to attenuate rotational forces that can result in brain injuries. The requirements are more stringent than the corresponding criteria in the ECE 22.06 standard. Snell M2025D and M2025R standards continue to include comprehensive linear impact tests on various surfaces and under different environmental conditions, making them the toughest motorcycle helmet standards to meet.

Experienced Snell staff are busy testing many helmet models, as helmet makers trying to bring their M20205 helmets to the market this fall. Every newly certified M2025D and M2025R helmet must carry a Snell certification sticker inside.
