What To Look For When Choosing A Helmet

Posted: January 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

With so many products on the market these days, it can be confusing as to which helmet is best value for money and the one that will ensure most protection and comfort.

So how can you distinguish a good helmet from the rest of the bunch? Well, you have to use your head…literally!

It is very important to get the perfect fit. Don’t just go by recommendations, helmets fit everyone differently, so a helmet that suits your mate, may not suit you – so always try helmets on before buying. Fit should always come before price. The better the fit, the more protection and comfort you will receive.

When buying a helmet, always make sure that the shop assistant measures your head. You would be suprised by the number of motorcyclists who drive around wearing a helmet that is too big for them.

If you can, always opt for a shell shape. Motorcycle helmets should act as a second skull with no excessive movement when fitted.

Once you have bought your helmet, you need to look after it. Always clean the helmet will warm water and avoid using aggressive products containing a lot of addictives.

Carry your helmet using the fastened strap or in a helmet bag.

If you look after your motorcycle helmets

, they will look after you.

Happy Riding,
