Since motorcycles don’t offer airbags and other protections that cars do, safety is an important consideration when biking. And the most important piece of safety gear you can buy is a motorcycle helmet. It’s vitally important to protect your noggin during a crash or fall. But which helmet is right for you?

There’s a wide assortment of helmets on the market, so the first decision you need to make is what type of helmet you want. Your options include:

  • Half helmet
  • Three-quarter helmet
  • Flip up helmet
  • Full face helmet

Obviously, a helmet that covers your entire head and face will offer the most protection. But comfort is also an important factor in deciding. Whichever type of helmet you ultimately choose, ensure that it has a hard outer shell, a Styrofoam core, a fabric lining and a chin strap. These features are all designed to contribute to a helmet’s safety rating, which is determined by various safety testing agencies.

Once you select a type of helmet, you’ll need to find a model that fits your head well. A motorcycle dealer can help you find a helmet with a snug fit. It should make contact all around your head and face, with no wiggle room.

On top of type and fit, another factor you should consider when shopping for a motorcycle helmet is what optional features you want. Some of these might include:

  • A ventilated outer shell
  • Removable liner
  • Face shield
  • Anti-fog coating
  • Internal sun visor

These features are mostly designed for improved visibility and comfort. But a helmet’s first and foremost priority is to protect your head. And just like a helmet protects your head, your motorcycle insurance policy protects you, your bike and your finances.
