How Safe Is Your Motorcycle Helmet?

Defective Motorcycle Helmets

12006569_mWearing a helmet can save your life and minimize brain injuries, but if your helmet is defective you will not be protected. Defective helmets can fail to stand up to impact, fail to provide enough cushioning, or come off completely during a crash failing to provide any protection at all. Even the best helmets do not prevent all brain injuries and deaths, but they do improve your chance of surviving a crash.

Motorcycle Helmet Defects

Examples of common motorcycle helmet defects include:

  • Lack of impact resistant material
  • Helmet fastener defects
  • Defective chin strap
  • Inadequate padding
  • Failure to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard
  • Failure to pass compliance testing
  • Labelling which indicates DOT, ECE 22.05, or Snell certification when the helmet has not actually passed the tests required for certification
  • Don’t skimp on your safety when it comes to helmets. Make sure yours will protect you when you need it most.
