A motorcycle helmet serves two important goals: First, it protects your head in a crash. Second, but equally importantly, it protects your head and keeps you comfortable while riding. Proper helmet sizing is important when riding a motorcycle. One of the last things that a rider should be concerned with on the road is their helmet flopping around on their head due to the incorrect size. Therefore, one must be willing to take the time in order to pick out the proper helmet and ensure that it will fit properly.
Follow the manufacturer’s sizing guide for each helmet. Every manufacturer’s helmet will fit a bit differently. Don’t assume if you are a size large in one helmet, you will be a size large in every helmet. Each helmet fits differently and if you don’t follow proper sizing guidelines and adhere to sizing charts, you run the risk of purchasing a helmet that does not fit properly. You also may want to be aware of your head size. Different manufacturers make helmets that fit different shaped heads, for example, oval or round. A helmet manufactured for a round head may not fit an oval-shaped head as well.
Whether helmets are optional or imperative in your state, you’ll need a safe, DOT authorized helmet, while still being comfy and trendy. 3/4 helmets are much more comfortable, although they reveal your chin and face. Often referred to as open face helmets, 3/4 helmets cover the back of your skull, but they omit the lower chin protection and face shield. This increases your airflow, hearing ability, and marginal vision. To project against insects, dust, debris, or wind, some riders use sun shades or goggles to increase the protection level. 3/4 motorcycle helmets are efficient in rear protection, just like a full face motorcycle helmet, but they don’t protect the face of the rider. They do, however, provide more protection than a half helmet, and this style is usually popular with touring riders who like long or moderate distance rides. Some riders wish to have different helmets for different rides, for example a 3/4 helmet for easier rides and a full face helmet for longer or chillier trips. They also offer some cover against puncture, and the insulation implies that heat or cold won’t immediately cause damage (like if you end up with your face pressed into the engine of your motorcycle).
The crushable material deforms in a crash, soaking up energy that would have otherwise been transferred to the brain. Different manufacturers will have different formulations of what precise material goes into the crushable layer, but it all serves the point of soaking up impact energy.
Development of THH helmets, right from the mould to the end product, is a tedious process. To reward the superb efforts of all factory staff who work individually on each one of the helmets sold by the company later on, it is important to make them pass through a quality assurance test. The development division has specific requirements that a factory prepared product must adhere to.
1. Shell of the helmet is always manufactured from plastics that are fiber-reinforced. This high quality plastic offers the best quality for a helmet shell. The company is capable of producing high quality shells that hold immense strength and yet carry little weight. It has been possible due to the decades of expertise and experiences of the factory staff of the company. Interestingly, every employee puts a name on the shell for which he or she is responsible.
2. The product is given a final shape after laser cutting where all extra protrusions are removed during a process. Vents are also created in this process with the help of lasers. At the last stage, a helmet is checked thoroughly for the right material weight and its thickness.
3. The company gives in-hand treatment for painting in addition to some automated processes to ensure highest possible quality. Replacing manual hard work is not always possible by using machines and the company understands it really well. People responsible for painting the helmets are highly experienced and they handle the painting processes layer by layer. Even impressive graphic designs of the company are created by expert employees by hand.
4. All components are finally assembled at the company with great care. Only after a meticulous inspection in final stage, a helmet goes for a sale.
