May 26, 2013 — Roy Burek, Managing Director and Head of Design at Charles Owen & Co., brings over 30 years of experience in setting helmet standards to present this webinar, Complex Helmets for a Complex World. The webinar will be held Wednesday May 29, 2013, from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Burek is currently a representative on the European Standards for equestrian helmet safety and a leading member of ASTM International’s helmet standard’s subcommittee.
Through his research for Charles Owen, Burek has learned that helmets with multiple standards and multiple certifications help lessen injuries across a broader spectrum of accidents. By adding complexity into the helmet design to answer many of the questions asked in today’s riding accidents, Charles Owen has been able to build a helmet that works better at dealing with the energy of impact for a wider range of accident situations. Horses and riders are riding in many different situations and environments than before, requiring helmets that can answer today’s tougher questions.
