Helmets

Riding a motorcycle on a wide-open stretch of asphalt provides motorcyclists with a sensation of freedom. This feeling has been a catalyst throughout the evolution of motorcycling around various parts of the world. Motorcycles are not only two-wheeled vehicles designed for short-distance commutes anymore. There is a cult following for every form of riding a motorcycle, whether sports riding, long-distance touring, stunting, or recreational riding. However, it is one of the riskiest forms of wheeled vehicles as we know them in the 21st century. In case of a motorcycle crash, few safety features are offered even by the most expensive and powerful motorcycles. There is no argument against the fact that a motorcycling helmet is an essential piece of safety gear that any motorcyclist must wear all the time that they are riding a motorcycle, howsoever low or high-powered it might be. 

Risks Of Riding Without A Helmet

Riding a motorcycle without a helmet poses considerable risks. Statistics suggest that on Indian roads, at least six two-wheeler riders die every hour in a road accident. In the case of an accident, a motorcycle lacks the structural protection that a car does to keep drivers safe. Therefore, motorcyclists must take extra steps to protect their bodies. Furthermore, being one of the most essential and vulnerable anatomical features of our body, the head must never be exposed to undesirable impact in case of a motorcycle crash. Therefore, proponents of safe riding practices and veteran motorcycle riders from all sects and cults agree on one point - riding a motorcycle without a helmet is a strict no-no for anyone. 

 

In case of a motorcycle crash, riders and pillions wearing a helmet have a much higher chance of survival than those who do not keep their helmets on their heads. No wonder traffic rules in India prohibit riding a motorcycle without an adequately certified helmet by the ISI. With the new amendments to the Motor Vehicles Act already enforced through increased penalty amounts and stricter watch out by the authorities, getting caught without a helmet will burn a hole in your wallet and compromise the safety of riders and pillions alike. 

 

Motorcycle riders must be aware of the dangers of riding without a bike helmet. In an accident, riders who do not wear helmets are at risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury. Even at moderate speeds, the head is vulnerable to a severe impact in an accident if it is not protected. Non-fatal traumatic brain injuries frequently have substantial and long-term consequences. Brain trauma often results in spinal cord damage and impairment, needing extra medical attention and physical therapy. Furthermore, the affected brain may deteriorate after hospitalisation and die days to weeks after the injury due to subsequent injury.

 

Getting a helmet before riding your bike on the road is a no-brainer. But it is; knowing which helmet to get and from where might be confusing for someone purchasing a helmet for the first time. There are various forms of helmets suited to different riding needs and styles, and there are multiple Indian and overseas brands offering state-of-the-art and highly stylish helmets. For the average Indian customer, value-for-money products tend to be very appealing. However, the population of riding enthusiasts, professional riders, and even daily commuters is always on the lookout for purchasing a product that offers the best value for their bucks - even if it is a motorcycle helmet. 

 

Aspects To Lookout For When Purchasing A New Helmet

 

It is a widespread style trend to choose a motorcycle helmet that matches the colour of the rider's bike and other gears. However, a helmet's first and most important function is to protect the skull and face and prevent injury to more delicate internal organs like the brain. Therefore, the colour of the helmet is the least important aspect to bother about when choosing a helmet. On the other hand, based on the riding style, one should wear a helmet that protects the entire head, including chins and cheeks. Open face helmets for daily commuting and low-speed, low-distance riding might get the job done, while tourers who have to keep their helmet on their head for longer riding hours might need something between a full face and an open face helmet. Similarly, there might be other considerations to worry about. Here is a simple motorcycle helmet buying guide before grabbing yours on the GoMechanic Accessories website at mega deals. 

 

Helmet Type 

 

The amount of coverage that helmets provide to your head categorizes them as a full-face and open-face helmets. However, depending on market demands, innovation, and research & development into motorcycling safety, the following types of helmets are the most commonly used by riders all around India.

 

Full Face Helmet - A full-face helmet provides the maximum coverage around your head and neck and is the safest form of a motorcycle helmet for impact protection. The chin bar, a vital safety component that open face helmets lack, is a distinctive element of the full-face helmet. Most importantly, full-face helmets are structurally sound compared to open-face and modular helmets. The entire shell is a single, seamless chassis designed to house the internal padding and external visors. Full-face helmets are widely used in sports riding, stunt riding, and other forms of adventure sports. 

 

Open Face Helmets - Open face helmets cover the top and back of your head, including your ears and partially the cheeks. However, the face is open, and the chin and the only protection available for the face is the visor that comes with the most open face helmets. While the visor can only protect windblast while riding a two-wheeler, open face or half face helmets have their areas of appeal and popularity among a particular type of rider. Since the facial region is left exposed to the elements of the environment, they are popular among scooter riders and tourers who seldom ride at blazing speeds but focus more on enjoying their ride commuting shorter distances. While open-face helmets are always a notch down from full-face helmets in terms of protection, they are not unsafe if used for the proper riding style. 

 

Modular Helmets - Full-face helmets provide all-around protection while preventing exposure to natural elements. Open face helmets bring you the adventure of feeling the wind on your face by compromising a little bit on the coverage provided. However, a modular helmet positions itself between these two extremes and gives you the best of both worlds. The chin piece is made to swivel up and down on an axis that runs horizontally between your ears in modular helmets. As a result, depending on your need, you can flip the chin piece up to convert it into an open-face helmet or lock it down to experience the safety of a full-face helmet. 

 

Tourers, cruisers, and adventure riders favour the modular helmet because it is built for an upright riding position. The chin bar is meant to sit lower on the face, and the eye apertures are planer. Bluetooth speakers and a dual visor system, and an anti-fogging coating on the primary visor are additional features that can be found in modern modular helmets designed for long-distance touring. 

 

Certification 

 

Once you are familiar with the types of helmets available in the consumer markets and decide upon a particular type depending on your preferred riding style, the next vital aspect to consider is whether it is legal to wear the helmet on Indian roads. 

 

As per new amendments brought in by the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH), since June 01, 2021, every helmet manufactured and sold in India must bear the ISI mark. In other words, it is not only mandatory to wear a helmet while riding a two-wheeler on Indian roads, but it is also mandatory for the helmet to bear the ISI mark representing that the quality and safety quotient of the helmet has been certified by the Indian Standards Institutions (ISI) or indirectly by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). 

 

That being said, GoMechanic Accessories always recommend you for an ISI-certified helmet. It is important to remember that certain helmets made by foreign brands, and some Indian brands bear certification from other authorities such as DOT and ECE. However, on Indian roads, a helmet must have ISI certification irrespective of whether they are certified as per DOT or ECE standards. 

 

In terms of abiding by regulations but as a factor of safety, it is essential for everyone to wear a helmet that has been approved to provide adequate protection in case of a crash involving an impact on the head. 

 

Visor Type

 

The visor's quality and design are other important factors that must be considered before going for a new helmet. Conventionally, motorcycle visors are made out of advanced acrylic or polycarbonate material. However, visor designs can include tinted materials and even complete blacked-out materials depending on purpose and usage. 

 

Clear Visor - This is the most common type of visor encountered in a stock helmet coming out o the box. A clear visor provides a clear and unobstructed view of the outside and allows the best visibility during the daytime and even after the sun has gone down. 

 

Tinted Visor - Tinted visors find application in reducing glares from direct sunlight. These are meant for daytime use only and are sported by track racers during daytime races and sporting events. Tinted visors can include artificial tints, coloured wraps, coats, etc. 

 

Dual Visor - A dual visor system involves two visors in a single helmet. The main visor is conventionally clear, but a tinted visor can be engaged in case of bright riding conditions during the daytime. In most helmet designs, the tinted visor can be operated from outside or disengaged with the flick of a finger. 

 

Added Features 

 

Modern helmets come with a wide variety of features designed to ensure that keeping the helmet on your head does not interfere with riding comfort and provides protection even from natural elements like fog and dust. It might get confusing for first-timers to identify which features they should look out for. Here is a comprehensive list. 

 

Removable Washable Liners - The material inside the helmet plays a crucial role in ensuring riding comfort. Non-absorbent and non-breathable materials generally lead to sweating-related irritations. If they are non-removable or washable, then maintaining a clean and odour-free helmet will become a hectic task. 

 

Vents - Vents provided on a helmet allow proper ventilation, reducing sweating and allowing fresh air to circulate inside the helmet when riding with the visor down. It is essential to look for at least three vents strategically located on the helmet. Many open-face helmets often sport only one vent at the top. 

 

Add-Ons - Add-on features like PinLock ready/equipped visor, provisions for BlueTooth modules, adjustable straps, etc., also improve the riding experience by letting the user attach aftermarket attachments. It is essential to look out for such features if you wish to get the best out of your helmet.
