What is SEI / ASTM certification?
SEI is the Safety Equipment Institute, an organization that certifies protective equipment for a variety of industries. ASTM is one of the world’s most respected standards organizations, setting standards for everything from curing of concrete to hotness of red peppers to protective headgear.
For equestrian helmets, SEI has selected the ASTM standard F1163-15 to evaluate helmet performance. All Troxel helmets are SEI certified to the current ASTM Equestrian Helmet Standard. SEI requires testing at an independent lab to the F1163-15 ASTM Standard.
Do more expensive helmets have a better safety record?
As long as your helmet is SEI/ASTM certified, you’re buying a certified protective helmet. Spending more might get you different padding, fancier styling or materials, but it doesn’t translate into advanced protection.
How often should helmets be replaced?
All Troxel helmets involved in an accident should be replaced immediately. Your helmet is only designed for one impact event.
All active gear will suffer from differing degrees of normal wear-and-tear, depending upon the user. Equestrian helmets used by a rider 150 days a year will, by comparison, wear faster than gear used by a weekend rider. By taking care of your Troxel helmet, you will ensure a longer lifespan for your product. However, due to evolving standards, technologies and the potential for unseen material deterioration, it is recommended that you replace your helmet at least every five years from the date of purchase. Those who ride often should replace their helmet more often.
Can I paint or sticker my helmet?
We strongly advise against painting, applying stickers, gluing crystals, cameras or any other objects to or otherwise modifying a helmet as all of these modifications can damage the helmet and/or reduce its protective capabilities.
