    Episode #203 – Most cycle helmets do NOT protect against concussion

    The Spokesmen Cycling Roundtable Podcast

    Episode 203

    Most cycle helmets do NOT protect against concussion

    Monday, 5th November 2018

    HOST: Carlton Reid.

    GUEST: Jim Moss.

    SPONSOR: Jenson USA • The Latest Gear. The Best Prices. All In One Place.

    TOPICS:
    Today’s episode features Carlton and Jim talking about cycle helmets. Jim sits on a bunch of helmet committees for ASTM, and a tweet of his went a little viral when he wrote that cycle helmets do not protect against concussions. This was a tweet in response to this Forbes article, “I Do Not Wear A Helmet.” (In fact, he does.)

    LINKS:

    ASTM cycle helmet standards.

    Jim’s helmet articles on Recreation-law.com.

    6D helmets – protection from concussions?

    Helmets called for to prevent injury to golf players and spectators.

    In 2005, BikeBiz reported that three US dental associations called for mandatory use not just of cycle helmets to protect against facial injuries but also mouthguards. “The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and the American Association of Orthodontists advocate the use of mouth guards for children and adults when cycling,” said a joint press release at the time.
