The primary goal of motorcycle helmet is to protect the rider's head during impact, although many helmets provide additional conveniences such as face shields, ear protection etc.

The conventional motorcycle helmet has 2 principal protective components:

  • Thin, hard outer shell made of a thermoplastic or fibre glass (sometimes Kevlar or carbon)
  • Soft thick protective padding made of expanded polystyrene or expanded polypropylene foam

The Hard Outer Shell helps to:

  • prevent penetration of the helmet by a pointed object that might otherwise puncture the shell
  • provide structure to the inner liner so it does not disintegrate upon abrasive contact with the pavement

Protective Padding helps to:

  • crush during impact, thereby increasing the distance and period of time over which the helmet stops
  • reduce deacceleration

Pick the best fit

  • A helmet is a good fit if it sits well on the head
  • It should not be tilted forward or backward
  • It should have tight, wide straps that fasten snugly under the chin
  • It should be tight enough that no sudden movement should be able to move it

Always remember the #1 rule!

Anyone who decides to ride a bicycle or motorcycle must consider that wearing of helmets is the most effective strategy for preventing injuries from a crash or fall. The initial benefit of wearing motorcycle helmets is the protection it provides as they absorb the impact of a crash or fall. Scratches on arms and knees are easier to treat than a serious damage to the head that may cause death. With the high-speed most motorcycle riders employ, it is most likely that when they crash, the impact is great and damaging. Wearing a motorcycle helmet will reduce such impact and may prevent the chances of getting a severe head injury.

Make sure your helmet is certified, fits you snugly and you always fasten the strap. Motorcycle helmets not only protect the head from injury, but they provide protection against strong wind, dust, and smoke. Too much wind and dust may harm the eyes that will make it difficult for the rider to have a good vision of the road. Studies have shown that one cause of motorcycle accidents is the failure of the riders not wearing motorcycle helmets to act accordingly because of vision obstructions caused by wind, dust, or dirt.

"Getting the right fit for your head is the one thing
that makes all the difference in an event of an accident"
