Just imagine you just made your first new purchase of a quick sports bike and after you spent all that money on the motorcycle, insurance, and registration the last thing you want to do is purchase a $300 helmet to get out riding your new motorcycle. You opt out of the $300 helmet and went onto amazon or ebay and purchased that highly reviewed Japanese helmet with a logo you didn’t know how to pronounce. Many have been there before including some of my close friends. Thanks to Youtube review videos we can see that there is a significant difference between wearing a $300 helmet versus that $30 helmet you found online. The difference of the two could be life or death. Watch the video below:

Think twice before you purchase your motorcycle helmet. As we saw in the video the $300 Scorpion Helmet withstood the impacts of the bullets, beatings, drops, and smashes. The other was just as effective as a baseball cap leaving nearly no protection to whoever would wear it. We hope that this video will make you look into making a better purchase when it comes to protecting your head and your life. When first purchasing a motorcycle or vehicle helmet you should do a good amount of research to ensure that the helmet is appropriate for your riding. Some other things to consider when purchasing a helmet are: comfort, noise reduction, size, padding, strength, and visibility. Look up reviews and durability tests of the helmets you are considering to purchase. Save up enough money to get the helmet best suited to save your head from an impact.
Be careful when looking into used helmets. Helmets that have been used may have already been involved in accidents and could already be worn out. Before making a purchase always try the helmet on and make sure you have the right size. Riding with the wrong helmet size could cause choking, falling off in an accident, bouncing at high speeds, obstruct your view, and many more problems.
