The feeling of freedom that comes from riding a motorcycle is unparalleled. Without a helmet, however, there are serious risks involved. In the event of an accident, a motorcycle does not offer the structural protection provided to drivers by a car which is why riders must take extra precautions in order to protect their bodies.
Start by protecting your head. In a motorcycle accident, it is the head and brain that are most susceptible to injury. Those who wear helmets have significantly higher chances of survival than those who do not. But with so many different types of helmets available, how does one go about choosing the right one? We’re here to help.
Following are some of the common types of helmets:
Full Face HelmetsThese cover the rider's entire head and face. This helmet offers the most protection for the rider, preventing serious head and skull injuries.
Three Quarter HelmetsOpen face helmets (also known as three quarter helmets) cover the head of the rider while leaving the face open. If you want to feel the breeze on your face while riding, this is one of the helmets you could pick.
Modular HelmetsThese are a hybrid of sorts between three quarter and full face helmets. You can flip the chin bar up in these helmets. It's a good choice if you'd like the protection of a full face helmet while having the convenience of a three quarter helmet.
Half Shell HelmetsThis helmet only covers the top of your head, so it provides better immersion and is quite lightweight. With Half shell helmets, you also get a better view and understanding of your surroundings. This type of helmet can be a good choice in extremely hot climates.
Motocross HelmetsThese helmets are designed to be worn by motocross racers. They have certain features to make them lightweight while providing space for your protective gear.
