Description

This fibreglas helmet was made by Euro-Helmets Ltd to meet new European Community standards of safety. The strength of the helmet shell comes from the five layers of matting treated with resin to form the matrix. 20% of the helmet's surface is untreated with resin to expose the underlying layers.
