The Shoei XR-1100 came out as the winner of a test having been undertaken by ALTROCONSUMO. ALTROCONSUMO is Italy's oldest and having appr. 345.000 members biggest consumer protection organization.
Ten full-face helmets of different manufacturers have been tested with respect to ECE 22.05 conformity and separately according to further criteria not been specified in ECE 22.05.
Two helmets reached the overall result "good" (= "buono") but only the Shoei XR-1100 attained this result in both test segments.
Since seven helmets have been scored as "failed" (= bocciato") of which six did not even reach the ECE conformity, ALTROCONSUMO has contacted different Italian Ministries and the Director General Health and Consumers of the EC Commission with the appeal to change ECE 22.05 for the purpose of consumer protection.
