"A consistent trend of lower accelerations compared to the competitor helmet for all impacts."
APEX contracted the National Technical Systems (NTS) to evaluate the efficacy and performance of the APEX R90 helmet design. The APEX helmet and the helmet of a leading competitor were both evaluated with computer simulations of:
3 NOCSAE drop impact configurations
3 linear impact configurations
Accelerations measured by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) head form and Head Injury Criterion (HIC) were both used to compare the two helmets.
At their conclusion, the NTS test results for the APEX R90 helmet show "a consistent trend of lower accelerations compared to the competitor helmet for all impacts".
