The helmet that split is one of the plastic ones tested : the Vemar.
The impact that caused it to split was her landing on her back on the
tar and the helmet hitting a flat surface at 40/ 50kph, although she was
launched over the bike in a high side, so its hard to guess the velocity
of the helmet when it hit the tar.
No way of knowing what a fibreglass helmet would have done in the same
