No matter how long you have been riding a motorbike, no matter how many years of experience you have on the road, safety gear is essential. From motorbike boots and motorbike pants, to motorcycle jackets and motorcycle gloves, this is the safety gear that can help to keep you protected should you happen to come off your bike. One of the most important pieces of safety equipment you can buy, however, is a motorcycle helmet. Motorcycle helmets are not only required by law, they can also save your life.
When buying a motorbike helmet, safety is the first consideration. Choose a motorcycle helmet that provides the protection you need, then think about comfort, looks and accessories. A full face helmet is often a popular option, as it protects the face and head as a whole, while providing protected vision of the road using a clear or tinted visor. Another option for street riding is the flip-up model helmet, which gives full face protection when flipped down, but can also be flipped back up to allow for drinking or eating without removing the helmet. For those who ride off-road or motocross, there are motorcycle helmets that feature an elongated chin and a broader section across the face, allowing the user to wear goggles.
A renowned French company, founded by former motorbike racers, the brand Shark offers motorcycle helmets for professional racers, road riding, motocross and off-road riding. All Shark helmets have anti scratch, anti-fog visors and air vents to aid airflow for a more comfortable ride while wearing a full helmet. The aerodynamic outer shell is made from injected thermoplastic resin, with some models featuring inflatable cheek pads to allow riders to fit the helmet perfectly to the contours of their face. If you want to follow in the footsteps of the reigning MotoGP world champion, Jorge Lorenzo, wear a Shark motorbike helmet when you ride!
