After spending hours looking for a motorcycle, you are faced with the daunting task of what equipment to choose. The most important thing is the helmet you choose, as it protects the essential part of you: your head. It often puzzles me when people ride sports bikes, but “to save money,” they choose a cheap branded helmet, not realizing that the difference could save their lives.
Tips for choosing a motorcycle helmet.
The adage “the more the better” is not always accurate in this case. When choosing the best motorcycle helmets, you need to make sure that it is comfortable and cozy. Buckle up and grasp the helmet’s chin bar and begin to move the helmet from side to side. If you feel the helmet sliding over your skin and hair, then the helmet is loose. Move the helmet up and down, and if you feel you can take it off, it is still too loose.
Another critical factor is the helmet’s actual type: a full face helmet, an open face helmet, a short helmet, or a motorcycle cross helmet. A full face helmet offers maximum safety when it comes to the type of helmet as it protects the face and the back of the head.
Anti-scratch and anti-fog
More and more manufacturers are increasingly building their helmets with visors that protect against scratches and fogging. Otherwise, you can look for another helmet that has them or purchase an anti-fog visor. The last thing you want is to be invisible while driving because of the fogged visor. You can also always purchase an anti-fog spray or a strip of fog film.
You probably think that you need a motorcycle helmet with lots of vents, so you don’t burn your sweat on your helmet. The problem with many vents is that you will have a very loud helmet. The more aerodynamic the helmet and the better the ventilation holes, the less noise you will experience while riding.
When donning the helmet, pay attention to the chin straps. How comfortable is the helmet to match with the chin strap? If you plan on attaching the helmet to your bike, make sure you can easily attach it to the rear rack using the chin strap.
When wearing a helmet, make sure that the inner lining is comfortable for you. Also, note that the inner lining will “tear” as you use it more often, so it will be more comfortable for you to wear. Make sure you start with a tight and comfortable helmet.
Finally, the helmet design. The choice of design and pattern on the helmet is entirely up to you. There are many brands of motorcycle helmets out there, so you’re sure to find something to suit your style.
