Certification is the only parameter that can guarantee the true protective capacity of a riding helmet because it involves the testing, verification and proof that the helmet complies with unequivocal and certain safety regulations and standards.
KEP Italia is fully dedicated to the subject of safety: before each product enters into production, it is subjected to various tests to verify the durability of all of its components and is approved and marketed only once it has successfully passed every one. And it is not enough to pass the tests just once: the certifying bodies regularly visit the company to verify compliance with standard of quality over time for all production lots, whilst the in-house safety department carries out continuous quality controls in order that every single model reaches the market in perfect condition.
Each country has its technicians and commissioners who hold regular in-depth discussions within the European Technical Committee on safety and to establish the standards with which the helmets sold in each country must comply. The certification requirements vary from one country to another, but they are all usually reviewed every 5 years in order to remain in line with continued technical improvements, as well as with any new international safety regulations that may be issued.
So safety first !
Every model of helmet made by KEP Italia is developed based on the capacity to offer maximum safety, optimize rider performance and on the selection of materials that guarantee perfect hold and maximum comfort.
Also every single KEP Italia product is designed to be the perfect ambassador for the excellence that distinguishes the ‘Made in Italy’ label, in which the company is a firm believer.
KEP Italia designs and manufactures its products in Italy, combining all the Italian experience in terms of design, elegance and style. Often, it is style that first strikes and wins over a customer: falling in love with a KEP Italia helmet is easy; the inevitable consequence is finding it irreplaceable. But to win over an increasing number of admirers, the best in traditional Italian craftsmanship isn’t enough: you also need the support of great creativity and understanding of the ever-evolving market demands.
And from this awareness arises the need to offer innovative product finishes, to continue to research in the latest generation of technical materials, such as stainless steel (DDQ), aluminium, carbon fibre, Kevlar, polycarbonate and hypoallergenic and antistatic Dupon technological fabrics, and to use increasingly innovative production processes capable of creating both laser-perforated steel and super-lightweight honeycomb and aluminium structures.
