How Strong Is It? Hydraulic Press vs Motorcycle Helmet

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

When it comes to protecting your dome on a motorcycle, a helmet is of the utmost importance. Personally, we don’t really understand how people can ride without one.

While helmets do a good job of their intended use of keeping your brain from becoming a scrambled egg on the pavement, we’re not so sure that they’ll be as effective when going against a hydraulic press.

How much resistance, if any, will something that’s designed to protect do against such a strong force pressing down with the only intent being sheer destruction?

Check out the video below as press goes head to head (pun intended) with a helmet. Without cheating, how do you think that this one will end?
