Helmet acts as a saviour while riding, so it is advisable to use standardised ISI marked helmets as non ISI Helmets may not protect your head.



1 Safety comes first:

Helmet acts as a saviour while riding, so it is advisable to use standardised ISI marked helmets as non ISI Helmets may not protect your head. The cheap roadside helmets can protect you from cops but not from fatal accidents as they are unable to absorb any impact and crash.



2 Choose a full face helmet:

Helmet is not a fashion accessory. Choose a full face helmet and not a fancy, decorative helmet. An open face helmet will not provide good amount of protection.



3 Comfort:

Helmet should provide you utmost comfort while you ride. The helmet should be rightly fit to your head and capable of protecting your head, face and chin.



4 Check for ventilation:

A branded helmet should have proper vents so that air can circulate inside it and keeps the rider fresh during hot weather. It should have replaceable interiors, which help in avoiding dust and other irritant’s — a problem quite common.



5 Quality:

Helmets with polycarbonate unbreakable material effectively absorb the impact vibrations produced at the time of the accident and help to avoid head injuries. The visor of the helmet should be of high quality and anti-glare to provide better vision both during day and night.
