There’s a lot of controversy surrounding whether or not motorcyclists should be required by law to wear helmets. But, the truth remains: helmets do keep riders safer in the event of a crash. But, only if the rider is wearing one that fits the right way.
Once you make the decision to buy and wear a helmet each and every time you hit the road on your bike, there’s a lot for you to consider in order to choose the right motorcycle helmet for you; its style, its ability to keep you safe, not to mention its comfort and weight.
The first step to choosing the perfect helmet for you is to pick a basic style. While there may be a lot of trendy styles available these days, the three most basic styles recommended include: the full face helmet, which gives you the most protection, but is also the heaviest; the three-quarter face helmet, which is much lighter and more versatile, but basically just as safe and the half face. Lastly, there is the half face or beanie helmet style, which offers minimal protection and is not recommended by most safety experts.
