Today, motorcycle helmets save rider’s lives every day thanks to a smart design and strong but lightweight materials able to disperse or absorb the energy of an impact to prevent severe injuries to the head in case of a crash. It is the most important piece of riding gear that should be mandatory to wear. The statistics show that states with no or partial helmet laws have much higher death rates among riders. All helmets sold in the U.S. or Europe must be certified. To receive the required certification, each helmet model is tested in a lab.
