A helmet liner is heavy clothing made from cotton, which covers your head. The primary purpose of helmet liners is to keep the head warm. It gives minimal protection against cutting attacks like one from bullets and bashing attacks. Helmet liners provide no protection against environmental hazards.
If you decide to head to the track, whether it is an autocross in a large parking lot or a time-trial event at a closed-course race track, you will need more than just your car keys and driving skills. You are going to need a helmet. Most sanctioning bodies from drag strips to local autocross events require some sort of certified helmet.
One thing you wish you never will need is a helmet. Many people call this safety device "crash helmet," something that you definitely never want to use it for, but for which it is meant to be used. Such helmets are really important to shield the brain during a crash.
You think that the engineers who certify helmets spends their days smashing stuff. The certification got its name when a racer by the name of Pete Snell died in a crash when racing in 1956. Since 1957, the Snell Memorial Foundation has been certifying helmets.
Manufacturers have their own choice in how they build a helmet, Snell does not mandate a construction process, they only designate the tests the helmet must pass in order to be certified. The goal at Snell is impact energy management. That means when the outside of your helmet stops, the inside of the helmet should let your head “ride down” the impact by compressing the inner layer of the helmet, so your brain doesn’t feel the heavy hit.
And just how do they test these helmets? They smash stuff all day.
