Any modern motorcycle helmet is designed to protect the rider in case of an accident while also providing maximum comfort and noise insulation. To prevent the helmet from flying off your head at high speed, it needs to be equipped with a secure retention system. The way the helmet protects the rider’s head is by dispersing and absorbing the energy of an impact. It means that the harder the helmet shell, the safer you will be on your trips.

In the article available at the link below, our in-house tech expert Mike talks about the quality and properties of the materials used in motorcycle helmet manufacturing. Almost all modern helmets have a Styrofoam inner layer that absorbs most of the energy of impact and comfort liner with padding for a snug and comfortable fit. But the main focus of the article is the hard outer shell. Click on the link below for more information:
