Kate Thomas, our newest employee, gets busy stomping on Helmets.
See what happens when Kate jumps on an EPS helmet vs a Hedkayse Helmet. What secrets are hidden inside a helmet?
Is it still safe to wear after a bump, drop, someone jumping on it?
The EPS helmet showed absolutely no signs of damage after Kate's meaningful double foot landing - But will it be safe to wear (of course it won't, but do watch!)
The Hedkayse Helmet absorbed the energy and the landing was softer - even after Kate's Tripple Jumps! - But will it be safe to wear (of course it will be!)
Kate's response to the Results:
I don't do falling over..it hurts right? so following my reluctance to jump and then my disappointment that there was no visible damage to the helmet I was intrigued/excited to find out what the results of the drop rig tests were.

Firstly, all the colours of Hedkayse helmets have a musically themed name. - explained here.
The 5 scary truths about your bike helmet!
1) EPS (polystyrene) is great - great for one hit.
2) A dropped helmet, even from off a table to the floor, is going to lose some of its ability to protect you.
3) You should replace your EPS helmet every 5 years.
4) Head sweat, dirt, puddle splash, and hard work doesn’t make for a nice place to put your hands, let alone your head.
5) Counterfeit or Fake branded helmets
