Certification is the only parameter that can guarantee the true protective capacity of a riding helmet because it involves the testing, verification and proof that the helmets comply with unequivocal and certain safety regulations and standards.
KEP Italia is fully dedicated to the subject of safety: before each product enters into production, it is subjected to various tests to verify the durability of all of its components and is approved and marketed only once it has successfully passed every one. And it is not enough to pass the tests just once: the certifying bodies regularly visit the company to verify compliance with standard of quality over time for all production lots, whilst the in-house safety department carries out continuous quality controls in order that every single model reaches the market in perfect condition.
Each country has its technicians and commissioners who hold regular in-depth discussions within the European Technical Committee on safety and to establish the standards with which the helmets sold in each country must comply. The certification requirements vary from one country to another, but they are all usually reviewed every 5 years in order to remain in line with continued technical improvements, as well as with any new international safety regulations that may be issued.
