A helmet, which is lightweight and easy to wear, is the best protection you can get while riding your bike. It will not prevent accidents but it will protect your head and prevent serious injuries. A helmet is a great way to make your riding experience better. It helps prevent wind noises, wind blasting into your face, and dirt from flying around your head. It helps reduce fatigue and protects you against changing weather conditions.
Your helmet is one of the most important pieces of your kit. Therefore, it is crucial to select the right one. The choice of size and color is easy, but finding the right helmet can be difficult. It’s important to take into account the entire package. Plus, it can be hard to decide where to start with all the options and brands that are available. This is where we come in. Over the past 17 years, thousands of customers have found their perfect helmets in one of our 14 stores. We want to share this collective knowledge with all of you.
This guide is for all levels of riders, regardless of whether you’re an experienced tarmac grinder looking for a new lid or just getting started.
HOW DO MOTORCYCLE HELMETS WORK?
The main components of helmets are an outer shell, an impact-absorbing liner, comfort padding, and a retention system.
THE OUTER SHELL
This tough stuff is typically made of fiber-reinforced thermoplastics or composites. It can compress when it hits any hard object, dispersing the energy and reducing the force that reaches your head.
THE IMPACT-ABSORBING LINER
This layer, which is typically made of expanded polystyrene absorbs shocks and cushions them.
THE COMFORT PLATING
This soft foam and cloth layer is next to the head and helps keep the helmet in place.
THE RETENTION SYSTEM
The chin strap, also known as the chin belt, is an important part of the helmet. It holds your helmet in place during a crash. You should secure the strap each time you wear your helmet.
The liner and the shell both contract when the helmet is hit hard. This spreads the impact forces across the helmet. Some helmet shells can delaminate from impact, while others may crack or break when they take a hard hit. These are just two possible ways that a helmet might absorb shock.
HOW TO CHOOSE AN AUTO MOTORCYCLE HELMET
What type of motorbike helmet should purchase?
The easiest answer to this question? Choose the one that suits you best. Even the most secure helmet on the market won’t protect you if it is too loose and falls off during a crash. Fit is the most important thing when choosing the right helmet.
WHAT SHOULD BE MOTORCYCLE HELMET SIZE?
Your head can be measured by someone else, but it is not always the most accurate method of determining its size. If this is your first helmet, we suggest that you try them on in one of our stores. But if it is something you want to do yourself, it’s best that your know-how.
HOW TO MEASURE MOTORCYCLE HELMET SIZE
As helmet sizes are measured on this basis, you will want to measure your head’s circumference. Measure your head from the broadest point using cloth tape. Measure around your head, above your ears, across your forehead, and beyond the natural bump at your back. It’s important that you keep the tape measured level throughout this process. The tape measure should feel firm but not tight.
Motorcycle helmets have a wide variety of internal shapes. Understanding this is crucial when shopping for a motorcycle helmet. The most common motorcycle helmets can be described as having a ‘neutral, oval, or ’round’ shaped internal profile. Use the elevation view to see the head from the side or back. It is possible to modify the fit of some helmets by changing their cheek pads and crown liner.
HOW DOES A MOTORCYCLE HELM SUPPOSE TO FIT
If you wear a full-face helmet, your cheeks should touch the helmet. The cheek pads should press against your cheeks without causing you to bite.
Additionally, the helmet should not press too heavily on your head. When you are wearing your helmet, make sure it is not possible to lift it. If the helmet slides or moves when you move your heads, it’s likely too large and is therefore not the right size.
Try on as many helmets as possible before you can find the perfect fit.
