Choosing the best scooter helmet

No matter whether you’re only starting out with a scooter or you’ve been riding scooters for years, you’ll still need to buy a helmet if you want to stay safe while you’re out driving. Even though it might seem less fun riding a scooter with a helmet on, safety comes first! If you’re having a hard time trying to figure out how you can get the perfect scooter helmet for your own particular needs, we’ve got some tips for you:

Firstly, you could go to a shop that specialises in scooter equipment. In most cases, the people that work in these types of shops will know what they’re talking about so they should be able to help you out. If you’ve got any questions about helmets you should be able to get some good advice from these people, and don’t forget that you don’t necessarily need to buy the helmet from the shop either.  A lot of people go to these shops to get some advice and then go home to buy a helmet online at a much better price for example!

The size of the helmet is one of the most important things that you’ve got to get right. After all, there’s no point purchasing a great helmet at a good price if it doesn’t fit you properly. Getting the right sized helmet sounds a lot easier than it actually is though, but as long as you spend a bit of time trying out several different scooter helmets you should be fine. If you want to speed up the process, you could measure your head before testing out any helmet and then start trying them on you to see what you think of them. If you’ve got the money you might want to buy a spare helmet too just to have in case anything goes wrong.

Nowadays, many helmets come with a visor that has an anti-scratch and/or an anti-fog feature. Of course this will cost you more money, but these are really great features to have. The last thing that you want to happen is having a scratched visor that makes it nearly impossible to see out of or have a visor that is all fogged up due to the weather! We think that it’s certainly worth paying extra for.

Ventilation is another thing that’s worth thinking about. Some people buy scooter helmets that have a lot of vents so that they’ll be able to get fresh air, but they don’t think about the other affects that this causes. The more vents that there are in a helmet, the more noise that the rider will hear while he/she is on the scooter. This can be quite annoying, especially if you’re travelling long enough distances. However, there is one way that you can get around this, and that’s by purchasing a helmet that allows you to open and close the vents whenever you want. This means that you’ll get the best of both worlds since you’ll be able to decide when you want extra ventilation or not.
