helmet

In this series we will look at the all-important protective gear segment, The Series will be divided into 3 parts, The Product, Technical Specs, and How do you decide which one to Buy.

 

Part 1: What is a Motorbiking Helmet?

Helmet is the most essential protective gear for a rider. The primary purpose of a motorcycle helmet is to protect a rider’s head from a major injury in case of a road mishap. Along with protection against injuries, good quality helmet’s provide features such as additional ventilation ducts, UV protection visor, intercom panels, additional padding to name a few.

 

Few things to keep in mind while purchasing a helmet.

  1. Buy your helmet from a reputed brand, do not compromise on quality.
  2. Build quality should be safety standard mark.
  3. Look for the safety standard mark before you purchase a helmet. Always buy a helmet with safety standard mark. In India we have: IS4151 or ISI mark. Majority of international brands use different safety standards defined in their respective countries, DOT standard is used in (North America), ECE (European safety standards) is used all over Europe and Snell standard mark is used lot of countries all over the world.
  4. Make sure that the helmet your wear covers your head completely, accurate size will provide you maximum protection to your head.
  5. Carefully scan through other features which might affect your eventual decision – brand, design, cost and availability.
  6. Your riding style – A big factor

 Helmet Guide

Our Recommendation:

1. Full Face 

Our Recommendation: We recommend a full face helmet, they provide maximum protection to the riders.

---------------------------------------------------

2. Modular 

Our Recommendation: A modular helmet provides good enough protection, the modular design of  the gives the riders an additional option to wear the helmet, if you ask us, we still prefer a full faced helmet.

----------------------------------------------------

3. Open Face

Our Recommendation: We do not recommend these helmets, they offer less protection.

----------------------------------------------------

4. Half Helmet

Our Recommendation: They lack lot of basic safety features. Not recommended by us.

----------------------------------------------------

5. Motocross (off-road)

Our Recommendation: Buy them if you’re into off road riding or motocross racing.

----------------------------------------------------

6. Dual sport

Our Recommendation: : A Dual Sport helmet provides good enough protection, we still prefer a full faced helmet.
