All top riders know the importance of safety and with many of the best riders in the world putting their trust in Champion, you know you can too. Wocket Woy & The Pwoducer, Ruby & Katie Walsh, Pippa Funnell MBE, Piggy French, Kitty King and Sophie Wells MBE, to name but a few, all ride in Champion products because they know that Champion products offer supreme levels of protection, while allowing them to focus the job of riding their horses.
Champion has a tremendous safety heritage and the brand has been a driving force in the design and development of protective riding hats for over 40 years. Over this time, design and production technology has been refined, enhanced and perfected to ensure Champion products are based upon the most up-to-date, scientific safety research.
Champion helped to develop and was the first manufacturer to the British Standard PAS015 over 20 years ago. PAS015 is more stringent than other standards.
Some things haven’t changed though. Champion products have always stood up to the most rigorous testing standards and Champion’s hats have always carried the British Standards Institute (BSI) Kitemark – right from when the brand was first launched over 40 years ago.
The Kitemark stands for continual batch testing and factory inspections and guarantees you that every Champion hat will comfortably out perform the four main areas of testing: penetration, shock absorption, harness strength and stability. On average, every single working day of the year, a Champion hat is independently tested by the British Standards Institute to ensure it exceeds the PAS015 standard.
…Giving you complete confidence in the fact that all Champion products are built to perfection, tested to destruction…
