New online: KEP Italia E-light!
The newest addition to our extensive KEP Italia collection; E-light models! KEP Italia E-light helmets are extremely lightweight (around 445 grams) and for that extremely comfortable and strong, as the outer shell fully consists of carbon fiber. A combination of lightness and strength provides the rider the best protection possible. These (and many more) aspects make the KEP Italia Carbon helmets a great addition to our helmet range!
Specifications of the KEP Italia E-light
The E-Light helmets ensure optimal ventilation, as the special channels in the polystyrene control the internal temperature and stimulate the circulation of air. It helps to avoid the skin of the rider, because the five-attachment-point leather strap is hypoallergenic and very comfortable. The Coolmax lining is the one you’re used to from KEP Italia, detachable and washable. This lining is available in many sizes, so we can find the perfect size for you!
European CE Certification:
Combined with the VG1 01.040 2014-12 standard, which came into force on 1 January 2016, this certification represents a step forward compared with previous regulations. KEP Italia was the first company in the world to obtain this new certification for its helmets.
American and Canadian SEI Certification:
This certification is normally required in the American and Canadian markets and is recognized all over the world. Through continuous checks, also carried out at the company, so SEI certification ensures that certified products always and continuously comply with the reference legislation, or with the requirements of the ASTM F1163 / 2015 type approval. Maximum manufacturing quality and product traceability are also guaranteed by this certification.
ISO 9001 Certification:
Attests that the company’s activities reflect the minimum requirements imposed by legislation. This gives end customers full confidence in the quality of KEP Italia riding helmets. And in the traceability of the entire supply chain.

And this allows the company to guarantee maximum satisfaction even for the most demanding riders. Because they work to continuous improvement in all areas of activity, KEP Italia works hard every day to make the best helmets ever seen.
Type approvals involve sets of rules that riding helmets must respect in order to be marketed within a given country. The type of approvals currently required on international markets are:
Europe: UNI EN 1384: 2012 and document VG1 01.040 2014-12 containing additional requirements, replacing EN 1384: 2012 (which has not been disharmonized; in fact, this has lost the presumption of conformity, but continues to exist as a CEN standard).
America and Canada: ASTM F1163 / 2015
Great Britain: UNI EN 1384: 2012 and document VG1 01.040 2014-12 containing additional requirements
Australia and New Zealand: ASTM: F1163-15 or UNI EN 1384: 2012 and document VG1 01.040 2014-12 containing additional requirements.
Countries that have not yet developed type approvals adapt to the existing ones.
