1.1 This specification covers performance requirements for helmets used in BMX cycling. Studies have shown higher risk to the head and face for this sport compared to recreational street riding; therefore this specification requires impact protection over a larger area of the head than Specification F 1447 and the CPSC standard. This specification also provides performance criteria for helmets equipped with chin bars.
