Be Smart – Wear a Helmet
We totally get the wind in your face and blowing through your hair. But we also get the first line of defense any motorcycle rider should have is a helmet. Motorcycle helmets are deemed crucial enough that 48 states have passed some type of helmet law with 19 of those states requiring mandatory helmet use.
Whatever side of the fence you fall on as far as government mandated motorcycle helmet use it’s probably best to wear one just to keep the cops at bay. Besides, we love our customers and we want you around! It is a no-brainer that riding without a helmet is tempting fate and is very dangerous. According to a 2012 CDC report nearly five times as many no-helmet biker deaths occur in states with less restrictive laws.
We’re not here to push one side of the argument. Most riders wear helmets regardless of laws and we’ve got the goods! To be clear - Motorcycle helmets are not what they used to be. They are stylish and constructed with modern technological features that push safety while maintaining the utmost in comfort and freedom of movement. Truth be told, motorcycle helmets are a part of the riding experience as well as rider image. We look pretty darn cool with one on.
How to Size a Motorcycle Helmet
A properly fitted motorcycle helmet can play a major role in the outcome of an accident. The first step in finding a motorcycle helmet is determining your head size. Follow these steps:
- Wrap a soft measuring tape around your head about a half inch above your eyebrows, above your ears and around the back of your head at the largest point.
- Compare your head size with the specific motorcycle helmet manufacture’s size to find a match. Each motorcycle helmet manufacture provides different sizing charts for their helmets so you will need to compare your helmet size to each brand’s sizing.
- Try the helmet on before using it. The helmet should sit squarely on your head with the top of the helmet's eye port just above your eyebrows. A properly fitted motorcycle helmet will fit snug at first and loosen slightly as it is broken in.
- If the helmet moves or your fingers fit easily between your head and the helmet you’ll likely need a smaller size.
