Everything You Need to Know About the Helmet Motorbike

By Ralphie Shaw Subscribe to RSS | January 11th 2012 | Views:

Owning and riding a motorcycle is a huge responsibility. This is because one small mistake or miscalculation that you make while riding your motorcycle could result to serious injuries or even death. The risk of serious or fatal injuries is even higher for riders who are not wearing a helmet motorbike. No matter how much you pride yourself for being a cautious driver, there are still other reckless drivers on the road and you can never tell when an accident might happen. This is the reason why it is very important for all motorcycle riders to wear a helmet motorbike at all times.

A helmet motorbike is a type of protective gear that is worn on the head for protection. Its main purpose is to protect the head from impact and possible head injury during a collision or accident. Aside from protection, a helmet motorbike can also provide more convenience for the motorcycle rider. Some helmets are designed to provide ear protection, face shield and ventilation. Your face and ears are protected while you are riding your bike. It can be very uncomfortable if you have the wind on your face and ears the whole time you are riding your motorcycle.

A helmet motorbike is composed of two parts which are the outer shell and the inner lining. The outer shell of motorcycle helmets are hard, thin and usually made of materials such as fibreglass, polycarbonate and even Kevlar. The outer shell should be hard to make sure that it is not easily punctured by sharp objects. The inner lining is thick, soft and made of materials such as polystyrene or polypropylene. The inside of the helmet should be soft and thick to cushion the head in case of an accident.

There are different types of helmet motorbike but the safest of them all is the full face helmet. It is designed to cover the whole head up to the chin and has a clear visor for the face. This type of helmet can be very restrictive since it covers the whole head but it also offers more protection. It can be a little tiring on the shoulders if you wear this helmet during long rides so you need to be able to adjust to its weight.

The three quarter helmet motorbike covers the head but do not include the chin or face. It is secured to the head with straps attached below the chin. Sunglasses or goggles are often worn together with this type of helmet to protect the eyes while riding. This helmet is great for long rides since it is lightweight, non-restrictive and yet offers the same protection as the full face helmets.

The half shell helmet motorbike is the most lightweight type of them all. This helmet covers only the cranium of the head and does not include the ears and lower face. It offers the lowest level of protection among all the types of motorcycle helmets but it is the most comfortable because it is very lightweight.
