AFAIK, for the Euro test all flip-up lids are treated as open-face, in other
words the chin bar tests aren't performed. Just how much protection in that
area you can expect from a flip is debateable.
Also if there was an issue with lack of padding in the hinge area, I doubt it
would pass the ECE test - but that could depend on the exact places the test
impacts are done... I would expect the hinges to be attached to the outside of
the shell so there should be no effect on the padding?
