Your motorcycle helmet is your most important safety accessory. That is why you should always buy Snell, ECE and/or DOT helmets. Once you have found a safe and comfortable helmet, you likely want to find one that you love the look of. If you want a more colorful helmet, make sure to explore all the color options available. Plus, you can add some color to your existing helmet also.
Making Your Helmet More Colorful
To make a current helmet more colorful, the best options are decals and skins. You can paint your helmet, but that is a little more difficult and irreversible. Conversely, if you add decals, you can put some cool designs on your helmet for an extra pop of color.
Skins are similar but they cover the entirety of your helmet. They are essential vinyl wraps for your headwear. Whether you want to change the color, add a design or both, a skin is one of the easiest and fastest ways to do so.
Full-Face vs. Modular Helmets
Alternatively, you may decide to find a new helmet that suits your style better. When shopping for women’s and men’s motorcycle helmets online, many people find themselves confused by the difference between modular and full-face helmets.
A full-face helmet is one that covers your whole head and has a flip-down visor. They are very popular with sportbike riders. However, they can be used for any type of bike. Since they are the safest option, it is a good idea to buy a full-face helmet.
A modular helmet is similar in that is covers your whole head. However, the chin guard is not fixed in place. So, rather than just the visor flipping up, the entire face covering can be lifted up. This is more comfortable for some people. However, others contend that having a moving piece protecting the face is less safe.
How To Figure Out Your Helmet Size
Sizing for motorcycle helmets can be a little confusing at first. Fortunately, with a good motorcycle helmet fitment guide, you can figure it out in no time.
There are two main dimensions: the shape and the circumference. Motorcycle helmets are typically shaped for long oval, round oval or intermediate oval heads. A long oval head is noticeably longer (front to back) than it is wide (side to side). A round oval head is close to being as wide as it is long. An intermediate oval is in between and the most common shape. Take a photo of the top of your head to figure this out.
After that, take a flexible tape measure and measure the widest part of your head. This should be above your eyebrows, over your ears and around the back at the widest point. Each helmet should have a sizing guide to help you figure out which size option will work for you.
