How Do You Choose a Motorcycle Helmet?


It is against the law — not to mention dangerous — to drive a motorbike without wearing a helmet. According to statistics head injury is a leading cause of death in motorcycle crashes, and motorcycle helmets reduce the likelihood of a fatality by 29 percent in a crash. In 1998, 500 motorcyclists’ lives were saved due to helmet usage; 307 could have been saved.

Follow these steps to choose a helmet:

  1. Select helmets that fit snugly all the way round.
  2. 2. Find helmets with strong straps with two rings to fasten them. Snap fasteners can unsnap in an accident.
  3. 3. Buy a helmet that’s a bright color such as red, white, yellow or orange.
  4. 4. Consider a helmet made of a reflective material or one that has reflective tape on the back and sides.
  5. 5. Purchase helmets that are free of defects such as cracks, loose padding, frayed straps or exposed metal.
