Charles Owen Cross Country Skull 23 Feb 17

WIN with Charles Owen


WIN a Charles Owen 4Star Cross Country Skull - Designed for the extreme situation

The safest riding helmet is the one that has been tested for the accident that you may have. 


Each standard tests for a different set of accidents, so a helmet meeting multiple standards gives you the best protection.

The SNELL standard is advertised as “the highest manufactured safety standard in the world” and tests for the most extreme accidents. However, for the typical accident, the PAS015:2011 gives the best protection, nearly 30% more than the withdrawn BSEN1384. 

In developing the 4Star, the challenge was to create a helmet which combines the tough construction that addresses the extreme demands of SNELL with the soft multi-density interior to minimise injury, as required by PAS015. This is why the 4Star is still the only four-standard equestrian helmet in the world.

Certified to the four top international equestrian safety standards – Kitemarked to PAS015:2011, Kitemarked and CE marked to VG1:01.040 2014-12, certified by SEI to ASTM F1163-15, and certified to SNELL E2001 – the Charles Owen 4Star is the result of years of advanced computer analysis. It provides both improved crush-resistance, through the fibre reinforced shell, as well as the comprehensive protection one can expect from a triple-standard, triple-certified riding helmet. The neat quick-release buckle made of a high-strength alloy fastens the patented GRpx® harness system for the ultimate in stability.

The 4Star helmet also features the new Charles Owen “Free Fit" system which allows for increased airflow across the forehead. It combines a frontal air channel with a Coolmax® mesh which significantly increases cooling and evaporation of sweat. Add this to the 10 ventilation slots and the 4Star is the coolest ride yet.

Perfectly finished with a ventilated black silk, the 4Star helmet is the ultimate choice for the safety-conscious rider.
