ARAI helmet and SHOEI. Choose a helmet is quite simple: it is necessary to exclude Chinese crafts for $ 25 (at the first blow, they can fly into small pieces) and … look for the letter "E" in a circle on the strap.

Hard and soft is already 40 years as a helmet is compulsory by law in many countries, but often the decisive factor in the choice is not as much protection as the original type or coloring. However, in the first place when choosing a helmet should pay attention to his ability as much as possible to absorb impact energy so as not getting any head.

Of most commonly used thermoplastic ABS (cheap, flexible, but requires a little greater than the thickness of the material) or polycarbonate (the more expensive, durable, allowing thinner material), or various blends with intermediate characteristics.
