Best Helmet Money Can Buy?


Recommended Posts

First post and already looking for some help from you guys!

 

I want to start biking to work every day to get my sorry self into shape. Safety is my chief concern as I have a family. I want to buy the best helmet money can buy.

 

But I don't know which to pick.

 

I obviously don't care about speed/looks, just keeping my noggin' in tact. Does it matter or will any of those in the list be good? :?

Any Arai or Shoei helmet would fit the bill.

 

You can consider the Arai RX7X (~$700) or Shoei GT-Air (~$600-700) both from the authorised dealers here in Singapore.

 

Most important part is getting it to fit CORRECTLY. Measure your head's circumference and get the right size helmet for you. 90% of bikers i know are wearing the wrong sized helmet with the most popular being an M due to "best resale value". I was wearing an M for the longest time until i measured my head to be 55-56cm meant that i was an "S" size and now i feel much better with the helmet.

 

Secondly, if safety is of utmost importance to you, get a full-face helmet. Not half or 3/4 or modular helmet. Read in a statistic somewhere that 35% of motorcycle accidents result in chin injuries which can only be mitigated by a full-face helmet (or modular but the hinge would be the weakest link).

 

Good luck and ride safe!

Not true. There may be a risk, but not all claims checks for PSB helmet.

 

It could not make claim if it's not PSB approved helmet, no matter how expensive it is.

Definitely Shoei full face.

But the best protection is to practice defensive riding.

I had a friend who had the same thinking - "head must be protected with the best helmet". Bought the most expensive $1000+ helmet. Didn't make a difference when the accident came...
