I am going to tell you how to choose the best  helmet to ride a motorcycle and the features you need to see before buying it, types and further details of it.

What is the difference between men’s and women’s helmets:      

If you know the difference between mens and women’s helmets it will be very helpful and easier to buy when you’re going to purchase a helmet for your traveling.

But full face helmets are suggested to any woman who wants to ride which has almost no difference between men’s helmets.

There are few differences between the helmets of men and women like sizes,colours,types etc. 


As most of the girls have unique colour selections,different varieties of helmets with solid colors and floral designs are  present.

Usually girls preferring adventurous rides and wandering places prefer to choose helmets like that of men to have more protection during their journey.

Due to the absolute anatomical differences between the sizes of skull bones of both females and males different sizes of helmets are available in the market usually small size helmets are present for women.


It’s quite common for every woman to have hair and even a ponytail. To have better fitting helmets for women helmets are designed with a hole to accommodate their ponytails for longhair.

How to choose a motorcycle helmet??  

There are  more important aspects you need to choose apart from colour and graphics before buying a helmet .

  • Size of the helmet:

 Human heads have different sizes and shapes, not every human has the same shape of head, some have round head and some have elliptical head some have oval and some have round head.

So the helmet designing companies of all the countries prefer to choose to design helmet with neutral size.

So you have to wear on the helmet and check whether it suits and fits yours head size.

  • Internal padding:.          

 It is the internal lining of cushions inside the helmet.The liner should be of specific qualities like easy to remove, easy to clean and moisture absorbable.

If the weather condition is summer then you need to have such quality of extensive moisture absorbing otherwise your helmet will be of totally sweaty and smelly.

But if you’re naturally sweaty in spite of weather conditions then you have to wear a balaclava which is made up of 100% cotton so that it can absorb all the sweat and water from your scalp and avoid using polyester  nylon type of cloth.

  • Straps:.                 

You need to check for the attachment of straps of helmet on the chin.

The best thing is to choose a helmet with the lock system of chin straps because they can be fit and cannot be loosened as we can set according to our chin size before the ride.

They should be lined with soft pads to avoid irritation to the chin.

  • Visibility:.                     

Every rider must choose his/her helmet with a good field of vision.You should not feel any obstruction to your peripheral vision.

There are different visors like CLEAR  Visor, DARK Visor And IRIDIUM visor.

Clear visor is recommended most of the time because the most important thing is to have clear vision during the ride and this is possible with the clear visor, when the sunlight is getting more harsh on you then dark visor is preferred.

Iridium visors are usually reflecting ones and not commonly used.

  • Comfort:.                         

After all the ultimate thing you need to see is for  your comfort, if you are uncomfortable with your helmet then it’s waste of use because you get irritated unnecessarily and you may remove it, if your time is bad then you may face accidents.

You should go for a test drive with your helmet for at least half an hour so that you will be knowing about your comfort with your helmet.

Many helmets feel comfortable in the starting. But later on you may develop pressure points, headache by using it

  • Ventilation:.                    

Helmets with good ventilation keep your head cool in summer,hence you need to choose a helmet with a good ventilation system.

  • Colour:.                 

Choosing a bright and radiant coloured one is the best because it ensures your visibility to opposite riders during the night and also in low light conditions like during rains or snow.

So  don’t melt for dull or camouflage colours.

  • Standards:.                       

You must buy a helmet with an ISI mark on it. Sometimes head costliest helmets may be of no safety.

DOT/ECE/SNELL/SHARP certificates are the standards for countries like US, Europe, Brazil etc.

You also need to know about the types of helmets like full face helmets, open face or half face helmets, modular helmets, off ride helmets.

Among all the above, full face helmets are the best ones and I prefer them to both men and women, as they offer complete protection to your head if any events of crash occurs.

Other than those there are more chances of fractures to mandible, skull bones, nose, maxilla, orbital fractures hence, irrespective of place, gender, season, distance it’s always best to choose full face helmets.
