Half helmet EC / ECE marking
Sometimes we get the question if a half helmet has an EC or ECE mark?
The answer: A real half helmet, a helmet which is half round, never has an EC or ECE mark.
Some companies can name their helmet a half helmet, while it doens't meet the previous description, so these rules will not affect those helmets.

This doens't say anything about the safety a half helmet offers. We offer plenty of half helmets that do not have an EC mark, but still are safe to use. This means, they will offer a certain kind of protection. This differs per helmet. We are not responsible for any kind of damage while wearing a helmet of ours.
In the Netherlands you are obligated to have an EC / ECE marked helmet while driving a two wheel motorcycle which has a helmet obligation for the public road.
So you can wear a half helmet on a private property or on a two-wheel motorcycle which has no helmet obligation. This is on your own risk.
