Factors to Consider When Selecting a Motorcycle Helmet

by Jenny Campata Online Marketing Head

It seems like no matter where you go, there are motorcycle helmets everywhere. You can find them at your local bike shop or online for a great price. But if you're not careful, picking the right one could be difficult and time-consuming. 

What's important to remember is that it doesn't matter how much money you spend on a helmet; it only matters that it fits properly and protects you in case of an accident. With this article, we hope to help make the process easier by giving tips for choosing the best motorcycle helmet for you.

What Type of Helmet Do You Need?

This is the first question you need to ask yourself. There are three types of helmets: open-face, full-face, and modular or flip-up helmets. It's important to know what type will work best for your preferences before purchasing one. For example, an open-face motorcycle helmet gives you more visibility while a full-face version provides better protection by covering most of your head including the jawline area which can break in case of an accident causing injury or death if it isn't protected well enough.

Modular/Flip Up Helmets offer convenience because they allow riders to easily lift up their visor from the front when stopped at red lights rather than having to take off the entire helmet.

If you are not sure of what type fits your needs, we recommend visiting a local dealer or asking for advice from one of our professionals at your nearest store. 

Choose the Correct Fit

Just like with any type of clothing, your helmet will fit better if it's not too tight or loose. The best way to ensure that you have a perfect fit is by doing two simple things: trying on different sizes and adjusting them properly. 

Try-On Different Sizes Top brands usually come in small, medium, large and extra-large which are all based on centimeters so remember to convert yours into cm before heading out! We recommend measuring around your head where the brim of the hat rests using a soft tape measurer under an existing lid for quick reference. Once you've found what size works best for you, try putting it up against another one just to make sure are both similar

What's Your Budget?

Motorcycle helmets are usually priced anywhere from $30 up to hundreds of dollars. It may be tempting to go for the cheapest option but keep in mind that if you don't like it, chances are you'll just end up wasting money on something else. 

Top brands have great customer service so if anything ever happens with your helmet during an accident or other type of damage, they will either replace it completely free of charge or reimburse you depending on their policy. 


This is why we recommend choosing a high-quality product that has been proven time after time by previous buyers who have experienced real-life situations rather than relying solely on word-of-mouth reviews because let’s face it; not everyone can afford to spend over 100$+ at once.

Conclusion: 

when you are choosing your new motorcycle helmet consider what type fits your needs best and go for the one that offers the most protection while being in an affordable price range.
