All motorcyclists know the helmet is a crucial piece of gear. It provides protection from accidents and the elements.
Choosing the right helmet is as important as choosing the motorbike itself. When shopping for a motorcycle helmet, key features to look for include a lightweight and comfortable design that will also keep you cool, quality construction, and an adjustable fit.
It’s important to buy a quality helmet to ensure your head is as protected as possible. Make sure to buy one that is certified and meets the required helmet safety standards.
A good helmet needs to fit properly, so always try before you buy. It should be snug enough that it doesn’t move around, but not so tight it causes pressure on your forehead.
There are various types of motorcycle helmets, including full-face, modular (flip-up), open face (¾), half helmet, off-road and dual-sport helmets.
Each type offers different levels of coverage and protection, and are suited to certain types of riding. Make sure to get the motorcycle helmet best suited for the type of riding you’ll be doing.
While there are many great motorcycle helmets on the market, not all of them meet the same standards and level of quality.

Buying Harley Davidson helmets
As the most essential piece of safety gear a rider can wear, it’s important to find the right motorcycle helmet. Choose a helmet that suits your riding needs and budget, but more importantly, one that meets the necessary safety standards.
A favoured brand by motorcycle enthusiasts, Harley Davidson is known for its high-quality. Many Harley Davidson men’s helmets are also suitable for women, you just need to make sure the fit is right.
It is recommended that helmets be replaced every 3-5 years, even if there are no visible signs of damage. This is due to interior protective elements, such as helmet liners and impact-absorbing layers, deteriorating over time and losing effectiveness in safety, comfort and fit.
