MELON® SCORES "GOOD" AT BIKE BILD
Melon scores yet again – This time: Bike Bild's helmet test 2019. Here's what they have to say:
"Racing stripes, bowling ball or the melon that gives it its name: the Urban Active is available in over 50 different designs and colours. You have to like the melon shape, though. We liked the above-average soft padding, in comparison the Urban Active is relatively broad. For a helmet in skater look the model of Melon is very light."
|Colour Selection||more than 50 designs|
|Protective Effect||4.5/5 Stars|
20–16,5 = very good 16–12,5 = good 12–8,5 = Satisfactory 8–4,5 = sufficient 4–0 = insufficient
CONCLUSION: "Melon leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to looks, everyone should find their favourite model here. The inner values are also right, reflective straps and a magnetic buckle are an additional pleasure."
MELON® WINS AT "CYCLE MAGAZINE"
Cycle magazin chose Melon as the test winner in the category ‘Urban Helmets’. Here’s what they said:
“Fancy helmet with a lot of functionality: The adjustment to the individual head circumference is regulated by the spin dial at the back. The side straps are adjusted to the correct fit. Breathable paddings lie comfortably on the head. Thanks to the magnetic buckle, the chin strap can be operated easily with one hand. An air flow system with twelve ventilation holes provides a great cooling, and reflective elements on straps and logo provide additional safety. Also the helmet is particularly light in comparison with other brands.“
- Aesthetic design
- light weight
- one-handed operation
- good value for money
Conclusion: Who loves fashionable appearance and focuses on functional comfort, makes a good choice with the Urban Active.
MELON® HELMETS RATED "BEST" AT KONSUMENT.AT
The Konsument testers examined 18 helmets of popular manufacturers on a much stricter basis than ever before. In this latest test, only three helmets scored “good”, with Melon as the winner. The helmets were tested in a range of categories: ‘accident protection’, ‘handling’, ‘comfort’, ‘heat resistance’ and ‘chemicals’, using the European standard for bicycle helmets CE EN 1078. This new method of testing gauged how well the forehead and temple are protected by the helmet, and whether the forehead is subject to rotational movement during the fall. Both scenarios have a major influence on the severity of injuries.
The test winner was Melon, which also stood out for its “handling and comfort”.
Melon also achieved a surprising result in the sub-category “ventilation”.
Just one other helmet ventilated as well as Melon did. Despite the closed helmet shell this
result is almost in the racing bike helmet league.
Our conclusion: Helmets can look nice, be light, and still win important safety tests: NO BRAIN NO GAME
HELMET TEST „AKTIV RADFAHREN“
Setting the benchmark again!
The well-known independent German magazine „aktiv Radfahren“ has tested twelve bicycle helmets, issue 04/2015.
The test was a lab test according to the EU standard EN1078 and was supported by helmet experts of Cratoni.
The Melon® Urban Active helmet received the mark „very good minus“ and the explicit recommendation of the magazine.
Thereby the Melon® Urban Active is the third-best helmet in the test and the best urban bicycle helmet with a closed helmet shell.
