What is the best helmet for riding e-bikes?

"If you are riding an electric bike S1 highly recommends you use an NTA 8776 Certified helmet. The S1 Retro Lifer E-Bike Helmet fits like a skate/bike helmet but is constructed with thicker Fusion Foam so it passes the NTA 8776 Certification and helps protect up to 28 mph." - Dan from S1 Helmets 

"If you use a bicycle helmet for a powered vehicle traveling 20 mph (32 kph) or more, you are taking a greater risk than most unpowered bicyclists that the helmet will not be adequate for the type of crash you should expect. For reasons explained below we recommend a light motorcycle helmet or at least a helmet meeting the Dutch NTA 8776 ebike helmet standard. For low speed powered scooters, CPSC recommends a bicycle helmet.” - Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute

"A bike helmet provides some protection in any crash, but not enough for a powered vehicle consistently traveling at 20 mph and higher. You are taking a greater risk than a pedal cyclist that the helmet will not be adequate for the type of crash you should expect. For a 28MPH ebike it would probably make sense to consider a light motorcycle helmet. There are lots of them to choose from at your local motorcycle dealer, or you can find them on the web. At a minimum your helmet should be certified to the Dutch NTA 8776 standard, the only one specifically for ebikes.” - Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute
