For two-wheeler riders, helmets can be said to be the first and most important thing to guard against any mishap. Helmets cannot be taken just for the purpose of show betting. Investing in the right helmet means investing in safety and adding protection for the rider.
It is very important that you should spend money in a good helmet which is worth saving your life during the ride. Choosing the right helmet between helmets of different brands is a daunting task. Helmets can be available in different price ranges. Here we are telling you some facts that you must remember while choosing a helmet…
What is the type of helmet
There are many types of helmets available in the market – full face, half face, off-road, modular etc. First of all, you have to choose the right type of helmet that you need and together it should be comfortable. The selection process depends on the type of two-wheeler you drive, its speed, route, etc.
A full-face helmet is a common choice for motorcycle drivers, while a scooter rider may also opt for an open-faced or half-faced helmet. Modular helmets provide the safety and practicality of both full and half-faced helmets. On the other hand, an off-road helmet looks sporty. Overall, the helmet should be chosen on the basis of need and not on the price tag.
Most helmets are usually made of fiber-glass composites. High end helmets are made of carbon composite and Kevlar. The inside of the helmet comes with cushioning with a mesh of air to absorb sweat and keep the inside clean and dry. Cheap helmets often come with plastic ones and they break even after falling. Considering the fact that the helmet may need to be worn for a long time, the weight of the helmet should be checked before purchasing. A good helmet should last 3-5 years.
Fit and comfort
A good helmet should fit properly on the rider’s head. Helmets smaller than size or oversized are useless. The helmet should fit correctly. In the case of oversized helmets, they will exit during the accident. Wearing a helmet for about 10 minutes will give you a sense of how fit it is for you. The helmet strap should be lock-in and open easily. Also, once the strap is off, the helmet should not move or come out.
Not only the fit, but the comfort after wearing the helmet is equally important. A good helmet should come with a perfect ventilation vent that will cool the head during a long ride during summer. Adequate ventilation ensures that the air inside the helmet is being passed and the rider is not suffocating.
