Things You Should Know About Bike Helmet

The bike helmet is an essential part of bikers' kits. By just putting on helmets, the rate of bicyclists' head injury can be reduced by 85%.

In this article, we would explain different notable facts you should know about bike helmets. Okay so, let's dive in!

Types Of Bike Helmets 

  • ● Full-face helmet: This is the most suitable and secured helmet. It does not only cover the biker's head, but also the face. It has a small opening for the eyes though. It's suitable for long-distance journeys. Comparatively, it may be heavy than half face helmet. However, there are now light-weight full-face helmets made with carbon fibres.

 

  • ● Half face helmet:This helmet only covers the head and not the face. However, you can use a sunglass to protect your eyes from wind and dust. It's generally lightweight and less expensive than a full-face helmet.

 

  • ● Modular helmet:This is a hybrid between the full-face helmet and half-face helmet. You can adjust it to work as a full-face helmet and as half-face helmet. Its parts are not completely sealed but are largely joined by screws and bolts. It's quite heavy because of the added screws and bolts.

 

  • ● Aero helmet: It comes with an in-built glasses and would completely cover your head and ear. It's a half-face helmet with a tapered back. It's always optimized to reduce air resistance and makes your journey quite fast.

 

  • ● Half shell helmet: This helmet only protects the top of the head to the ear. It does not protect the jaw, neck and face. Comparatively, it offers very minimal protection.

 

  • ● Road cycling helmet:It's always smaller and more lightweight. It has more aerodynamics and better ventilation. Its impact protection is as much as the mountain bike helmet.

 

  • ● Mountain helmet:It always has an adjustable visor with a smaller vent. It's also heavier than the road cycling helmet and has greater head coverage.

 

Why you should use a bike helmet

Using a bike helmet is an important precaution to ensure a safe ride. It prevents you from developing any injury in cases of accidents or falloffs while biking. It absorbs the impacts of any fall or collision, rather than your skull directly feeling the impacts. It has a thick foam that directly absorbs the impacts of any falls.

It will also keep you easily noticeable to other cyclists and motorists, thereby reducing the likelihood of any collision with you. A glittering colour helmet would stand you out even at night.

 

When you should change your bike helmet

 You should change your helmet after any accident or fall off. After a fall, there are usually some serious cracks and abrasions on the helmet. This makes it unsuitable for further use. The Expanded polystyrene gets damaged after any fall off.

Also, if you mistakenly crack the helmet on a hard surface, you should consider changing it. Note that you may not necessarily discover a crack on the helmet with your naked eye but only in a testing lab.

Consider changing your helmet when you discover it's not properly fitting on your head. Once it gets too tight or loose on your head, then you should change it.

Note that you also need to change your helmet every five years. This is even when there is no crack on your helmet. By this time, the inner lining of the helmet would break down and the straps stretched out.

 

How to care for your bike helmet

Avoid any compression to your helmet and always keep it safe. Don't keep in any delicate edge or spot where it can fall off easily. Particularly, avoid hanging it on a mirror.

Avoid any degradation to the EPS foam of your helmet. Remember not to always put it under the sun or any heat. This may cause bleach and degradation of the EPS foam.

Don't use any glue or stickers on your helmet. Otherwise, the thermoplastic or polycarbonate helmets can easily glue to the ground, which makes them unsafe. Also, when you detect a break or crack on your helmet, don't attempt fixing it yourself with a glue

Regularly clean the helmet including the straps and pads. However, don't use hard soap on your helmet. Rather, only clean by using a light soap or just water. Note that helmets are quite sensitive and may react badly to some conventional cleaning products.

Prevent your helmet from fuels generally. The chemical composition of fuels can distort the materials used in helmet construction.

 

How much can you purchase a bike helmet?

Well, there is no fixed price for all helmets. It varies for different manufacturers. However, generally, a good helmet usually costs a minimum of 60 US Dollars. Note that you should be careful of purchasing ridiculously cheap helmets. Often, such helmets are of inferior quality. You sure would not expect a helmet of 15 US Dollars to be of high quality.

The pricing also differs per size. Bigger helmets cost higher than smaller ones. So, a full-faced downhill helmet would usually be more pricy than a commuter lid.

Also, a lightweight helmet is usually more pricy than a heavyweight one. This is because the former is made with high-end materials such as carbon fibre.

 

Are there regulatory frameworks determining helmets' safety?

Across different jurisdictions, there are different certifications helmets must obtain before they can be used at all. For example, in the United States, there is the CPSC certification. Also, in Canada, helmets must meet either DOT, Snell or ECE ratings. Certifications such as BSI and CSA are also acceptable.

However, a shortcoming stiffling the efficiency of these certifications is that their tests are focused only on peak linear acceleration. They don't focus at all on angular or rotational acceleration.  In actual fact, fact linear falls are the least common falls in biking accidents.

 

Is it compulsory to purchase a new helmet?

Well, you necessarily don't need to purchase a new helmet. You can purchase a second-hand. However, this has some downsides. A second-hand helmet might have broken or cracked and you may not easily detect this.

So, if you would be using a second-hand helmet, ensure it isn't cracked or broken. It is generally preferable that you purchase a new helmet.

 

How to wear your bike helmet

Even the best helmet won't be effective if you don't properly wear it. So, it is important you know how to wear it. To wear your helmet:

● Loose the straps or ratchets on the helmet and put it on.

● Properly fit the helmet on your head. Wear the helmet from the front to the back, and not from the back to the front. Put the helmet on in a way that you can view the helmet's bottom rim with no hassle


    Also, don't wear the helmet such that it tilts too much on the far back of the head. This rather exposes the larger part of your forehead. Avoid wearing any underneath hat or cap under your helmet as this may hamper it from properly sitting on your head.

    ● You should ensure the front of the helmet is two finger-like above your brow.

    ● Thereafter, tighten the helmet on your head. You should tighten it well to prevent wobbling or falling off whenever you shake your head. However, avoid excessive tightness because it may cause discomfort.

    ● You can now adjust and tighten the chin strap. Don't make this unbearably tight too.

    ● Voila, you're good to go!.
