  • Sharp Rating Sharp is a company that was founded in 2007, which is controlled by the British Government and puts helmets through durability tests. They have always raised question marks as some models of upper class brands were given low ratings. Nonetheless, they are an independent institution that rates helmets by testing them all in the same way.

COAU RATING

  • HJC IS-17AGV K3 SV
  • Noise Inside The helmet's ability to reduce noise, to minimise the wind resistance and to encourage ventilation inside the helmet was assessed in a wind tunnel at a simulated riding speed of 100 km/h. The helmet was fitted on a mannequin designed for acoustic measurement. The mannequin was equipped with a specially designed microphone placed inside one of the mannequin's pinnas (ears). The wind resistance was measured using the force plate which is part of the wind tunnel and the ventilation was measured by measuring the pressure drop on the face and crown areas of the mannequin.
