As just described you must wear suitable head protection as it is compulsory to wear a helmet with e-bikes/s-pedelecs up to 45 km/h. The legislator uses the term “suitable helmet” but does not make any more precise specifications. So far, there is no special helmet class for s-pedelecs or a generally applicable standard for this type of e-bike comparable to the CE standard EN 1078 or the standard for motorcycle helmets, the ECE standard R2205.
However, the Netherlands developed its own e-bike helmet standard for s-pedelecs in early 2017. It is designated NTA 8776. It will most likely also become the basis for a future EU e-bike helmet standard.
At CRATONI you will also find numerous e-bike helmets that comply with the NTA 8776 e-bike helmet standard and are therefore suitable for s-pedelecs. These include the CRATONI SMARTRIDE, CRATONI VIGOR, CRATONI COMMUTER and CRATONI C-MUTE.
In contrast to an e-bike helmet that does not meet this standard, models in compliance with NTA 8776 offer you the following advantages:
In addition, the models VIGOR and MILANO meet the motorcycle helmet standard ECE-R 22.05.
Whether it’s a city trip, the ride to work every day or an e-bike outing – CRATONI has the right helmet for every e-biker’s requirements. You can find suitable retailers where you can try out and buy our models using the retailer search.
