How Various Materials Used in the Helmet Construction Affect Rider’s Safety – Article

To protect the rider’s head from severe injuries in case of a crash, a good motorcycle helmet must meet a number of criteria. First of all, it needs to fit the head shape of a rider and sit on top of it snugly enough for the rider to feel comfortable and confident. The last thing you want is a source of constant distraction on your head, so the helmet must fit you precisely. Inner liner and padding must provide maximum comfort even on long-distance trips.

The Styrofoam mid-layer is designed to absorb most of the energy in case of impact. The vast majority of helmets use this material in their construction, so in this article, we will be focusing mostly on hard outer shells. They could be made of thermoplastics or composite-fiber material. Each has its pros and cons. To learn more, click on the link below:
