Ayrtek Cricket- PremierTek Youth- BS7928:2013 Compliant
We have spent the last few months dissecting, analysing and rebuilding the helmets in order to provide what we believe is an improved product. We have worked with The Sports Technology Institute at Loughborough University as well as with the lab at INSPEC to rigorously test the helmets against the new BSI helmet safety standard that we sat on the committee of to approve.
The PremierTek range has been designed using the unique Ayrtek Cricket structural shell shape made from high impact injection-moulded plastic, featuring an EPS liner and a fixed position steel grille as standard.The interior size is adjusted by the comfort padding system that is provided with the helmet. They also feature our 4 point attachment chin-strap that acts to minimise forefront wobble and adds to helmet stability when wearing the helmet. This Model comes with 6mm, 9mm and 12mm foam padding sets as standard to adjust the interior sizing. Additional padding sizes are available via our webshop if required.

Ball Strike Impacts
During BSI testing all cricket helmets are subjected to an inverted drop test onto a hemispherical anvil from which the peak acceleration levels are recorded.
In order to be deemed a PASS the helmet has to record a reading of 250gn or below. As you can see from the graphic below our latest Ayrtek Cricket PremierTek 2016 model not only pass this but come in on average over 200gn less than this allowance.
What does this mean?
In simple terms we are performing to a level that on average is over 82% better than required to pass testing. This ensures that if someone is struck by the ball when wearing one of our helmets the minimum force is transmitted through the shell to the wearers head inside of it.
