All competitors under the age of 18 and/or juniors must wear a properly affixed helmet, which must be of hard/soft shell construction. Helmets should conform to a recognized Standard such as SNELL B95, ANSI Z90.4, AUS/NZS 2063:96, DIN 33-954, CPSC or EN 1078. It is the responsibility of the rider (or parent or guardian if the rider is under 18 years of age) to:
a) Select a helmet that offers protection against head injury and does not restrict the rider’s vision or hearing.
b) Ensure that the helmet is properly fitted, is undamaged and in good condition.
(i) Any helmet which suffers damage (e.g. in the case of an accident or through mishandling) may no longer afford the same level of protection.
(ii) Cycling Time Trials makes no warranties or representations regarding the adequacy of any standard or the fitness for the purpose of any brand of helmet and will not accept any claim arising from the use of any particular helmet
(iii) The current British Standard BS 6863 is primarily intended for use by young riders and is not intended to provide a complete specification for helmets for high speed or long distance riding..
In the interests of your own safety, Cycling Time Trials and the Event Promoters strongly advise you to wear a hard shell helmet that meets an internationally accepted safety standard.
