A Custom Instinct Polo Helmet that meets the HPA Standard.
The Instinct helmet passes the Equestrian safety standard – PAS 015:2011 and has been awarded the Kitemark for its control and manufacturing methods. Tests include impact against both flat and acute angled surfaces and penetration from a sharp object. Furthermore, with revolutionary new materials and a unique design, the Instinct helmet has minimised dangerous recoil after an impact – which significantly decreases the chances of brain damage or concussion.
Following a comprehensive review the HPA Stewards have approved a future amendment to the rules for Protective Equipment (Rule 2.3b of the 2016 HPA’s Rules and Regulations) that, from 1st January 2018, all players shall wear a helmet that is Kite Marked and Certified to PAS 015:2011 standard as minimum.
Before 1st January 2018, the HPA recommendation is that all players wear Kite Marked helmets that do meet the PAS 015:2011 standard which is already compulsory for Pony Club players.
