The bike helmet you want may not be as safe as you think! - motorcycles

 

Choosing the right Dirt bike helmet can make a difference?.

?. literally concerning life and death. But how does an average guy in the avenue make an conversant certitude about what kind of helmets give the best protection? There are so many makes, models and styles. Not to cite DOT approved, Snell approved, ECE approved! It is an adequate amount to make you go goggle eyed when confronted with so much information.

Tests have shown that it is completely feasible to endure a fatal injury declining off a stationary bike if you hit your at risk head on the kerb, so evidently choosing the right helmet is important.

But which one?

Wouldn't it be easier if a big name just said, "Look, when you are in a crash, you need to defend this part of you head, since this is the part that is most expected to get hurt"?

Well that's what I thought. But it wasn't that easy. The kind of in order you need to make that kind of call requires someone, everywhere to look at a whole bunch of dirt bike crashes, look at the bike helmet damage, assess where point of bearing occurred and put the in order into a form that allows average motorcyclists (like you and me) to make a choice for themselves.

However, the good news is that if you look hard enough, the in rank is available. A study was accepted out a few years ago by Deitmar Otte, at the Medizinsche Hochschule in Hannover, Germany on the destruction incurred to helmets worn by motorcyclists caught up in accidents. His examination was exceptionally detailed; in fact it was far to exhaustive for me to go into here, but it was exceptionally important.

What I am going to do is tell you in a nutshell, what parts of your head are most apt to be hurt in a bike accident, based on Herr Otte's findings. The rest is up to you?

Take a dirt bike helmet and look at it from the front. Now dream up it is alienated into three sections; the top (the head area) the average (the area most possible sheltered by the visor) and the base (on a full face helmet, this would be the chin guard area). If you were concerned in a dirt bike accident, and you hit your head you would have a 35% ability of the blow stirring to your chin area, 10% to your visor area, and 22% attempt of the brunt happening to your front skull area.

Now turn the helmet around. Looking at it from the back, allocate it in two down the middle. In an accident, if you hit you head, you have a 16% accidental of bang in the works on the back of you head to the left side, and a 17% attempt of brunt happening on the back right side.

Conclusion? Well, this is only my own close but I would say the following?

The safest helmets are full face helmets?

Second would be three cut up helmets with visors?

Third would be half helmets?

Last would be novelty helmets.

There are lots of reasons citizens wear helmets. However, if wellbeing is you main consideration, then take a good look at the full face helmets on the market, take some time and find one which you can wear comfortably on every ride.
