With the Aussie dollar being on a more level playing field to the US dollar, consumers are taking advantage of online retailers to purchase a larger variety of motorcycle accessories and riding gear.

Purchasing a new helmet with an attractive price tag can be to good to refuse, but BE WARNED, although an imported helmet may meet one of the relevant FIM standards for closed course competition, they cannot be used on the road in Australia.

Because Reliability Trials include the use of public roads as part of their course, all helmets must meet any of the following three standards, and bear a relevant conformance mark to comply with the Australian road rules.

  • Australian Standard 1698-1988, (AS1698-1988)
  • Australian/New Zealand Standard 1698:2006 (AS/NZS 1698:2006)
  • United Nations Economic Commission Europe Regulation (ECE 22.05)Helmet Stickers

Helmets are checked for these standards at scrutineering, along with a visual inspection of the helmet internally and externally for excessive ware or damage.
