Comfort meets safety & protection. Experience a comfortable ride in style without sacrificing safety and protection. We stock a huge selection of motorcycle helmets to ensure you find the right helmet for your next ride.
Not all helmets are designed the same. In fact, this is an extremely personalised purchase and buying the right one will ensure you’re safer and more comfortable on that next big journey. So what do you need to know before you invest in your next helmet?
To keep you safe and secure for what lies ahead, your motorbike helmet is probably the most important piece of riding gear you are going to buy, and for good reason – it protects your head.
Start searching for a helmet, however, and you’ll quickly be faced with a mountain of options, some of which include full face, open face, and modular helmets. So the question is, which one do you pick?
The right helmet starts with the right fit. Choosing the right helmet means knowing what you want in terms of style and design, as well as, matching the type of headwear to your preferred riding style. Make sure to use our size charts to ensure a snug, firm fit all round without pressure points or contact gaps. With this in mind, it’s easy to pick out the helmet that will have you covered, whatever the destination.
Take your measurements. Did you know that everyone has a different head shape? Because our heads tend to be different shapes, helmet manufacturers have to take this into account and change up the shapes of their products. Buying a helmet in the right shape will ensure that it doesn’t clash with the shape of your head.
Generally, the shape of people’s heads can be divided into round oval, long oval and intermediate. By taking the time to find out what category you fit into you, you won’t have to worry about the helmet pressing down on points of your skull that they shouldn’t be pressing down upon. You should keep in mind that it can take between 30 and 40 minutes before you even start to realise that a helmet is uncomfortable so you may not want to settle for the first one that you try on.
Use the size charts provided in-store to make a decision about the fit that is right for you before you actually try the helmet on – this will give you a better chance of investing in the right fit. Just remember we offer 28 day returns and exchanges so you can buy online with confidence. For those who want to get a feel for the right headwear before making a purchase, you can always visit us at our showroom in Underwood, QLD.
The design. Once you know what type of size and shape you want, you can then move onto picking the right design. We stock a range of designs, including full face, modular and open face designs, each with their own benefits.
Optional extras. These days, helmets come with a range of additional extras, including Bluetooth, sunshade and wind reduction aids. Depending on how much you’re willing to spend, you could opt for something simple or something pretty high tech.
A helmet isn’t just an accessory. It can greatly improve the experience of every journey and so it’s worth putting in a little more consideration to get your hands on the perfect one.
