This specification covers the performance requirements for helmets used as protective head gear in pole vaulting. Prior to testing, samples should be conditioned in ambient, low temperature, high temperature, and water immersion conditions. The products should be tested using flat and curbstone anvils on any site on or above the test line with peak acceleration not exceeding the specified values. Both lateral and upward visual clearances should be sufficiently unobstructed.View Less
