Specifies basic performance requirements for impact attenuation, strength of the retention system and its attachment points. Includes peripheral vision clearance for lightweight protective helmets intended to mitigate the adverse effects of a blow to the head. Marking requirements are also proposed. Changes to this edition include amalgamation of the relevant requirements of AS 2063, Parts 1 and 2, a decrease in the recommended maximum mass for helmets, a requirement that the nominal mass of the helmet be marked on the helmet itself, a change in the recommended order in which tests are to be performed, and deletion of the requirement that the helmet manufacturer determines the helmet positioning index.

This Standard specifies the basic performance requirements for impact energy attenuation, load distribution, strength and effectiveness of the retention system and its attachment points, ventilation, and peripheral vision clearance for lightweight protective helmets intended to mitigate the adverse effects of a blow to the head. Marking requirements are also specified.It applies to helmets for all cycling activities except BMX racing for which cyclists may require more extensive protection.NOTES:1 A helmet complying with this Standard may incorporate special features designed to suit its use in specific activities.2 Requirements for helmets for horse riders are specified in AS 2063.1 and .3.3 Requirements for helmets for motor vehicle users are specified in AS 1698.
