Snell Helmet Standards

Snell Helmet Standards


Established in 1957 after the tragic death of Pete "William" Snell, the Snell Memorial Foundation has been a leader in helmet safety both in the United States and around the world. For over 50 years, the Snell Memorial Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, has been dedicated exclusively to head protection through scientific and medical research, standards development, helmet testing, and public education.

All Arai helmets meet or exceed Snell certification.
