A helmet is one of the most important pieces of riding gear. You have only one brain, so you should do your utmost to protect it. Wearing even the most basic, rudimentary open-face helmet can save your life in an accident.
Yet, for a long time, basic helmets have been our only option. Although motorcycles themselves have developed in leaps and bounds, helmets have traditionally lagged behind. Sure, they’ve become lighter and more comfortable, and we now have specific helmets for different types of riding, from racing and off-roading to modular and dual sport helmets. But the basic three-layer structure of a shell, impact liner, and padding has remained the standard for years.
