A helmet is the greatest invention for protecting motorcyclists every day. But not all helmets are equally safe. Best-designed and well-made helmets save lives, and some of them may just appear safe, while in fact, they are just shiny helmet-shaped objects that may shutter the second they touch the ground. Our in-house tech expert Michael Grayen wrote an article explaining the difference between some of the most common types of helmets made from different materials.

Any motorcycle helmet has three main layers of protection – an outer shell, the foam layer, and the inner liner. Since all liners, padding and Styrofoam layers don’t change much throughout the whole spectrum of helmets on the market, we will focus our attention on hard outer shells. The materials used in their manufacturing process range from simple thermoplastics to advanced composite fiber varieties. More details in the full article at the link below.
