A helmet is arguably the most important piece of the rider’s gear designed to protect the most important part of the human body. In this article, we will discuss different motorcycle helmet constructions and available types of gear made of different materials. All motorcycle helmets feature rigid outer shells designed to disperse the energy of impact over the larger area without cracking.
A mid-layer is usually made of dense Styrofoam that can absorb impacts very well. A soft inner liner has enough padding to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. Since most helmets differ in designs and construction of their outer shells, in this article, we will focus our attention on materials that are commonly used to produce helmet shells. After clicking the link below, you will learn all there is to know about composite fiber materials, plastics, and more.
