How Safe Is Your Helmet?

September 10, 2016


We know. There's nothing like the wind in your hair while riding. Still though, using a helmet is perhaps the wisest decision a motorcyclist  can make.

Serious head injury is common among fatally injured motorcyclists, so helmet use is very important. According to an article in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website, helmets are about 37 percent effective in preventing motorcycle deaths and about 67 percent effective in preventing brain injuries.

With this in mind, we though that it'd be a good reminder to make sure that the helmet you have or plan to buy fits properly and meets DOT standards. Please watch the video below...

Obviously, it's very important that your helmet fit just right and that it meets the highest of standards. They don't call it a "brain bucket" for nothing!

So, how does your helmet compare? We sincerely hope that all of you in our Team #CFPS family are properly geared up. If not, we invite you to come in to our MASSIVE store to see our HUGE selection of awesome DOT-compliant helmets and other safety gear... anyone in the parts department can help you find the perfect (life-saving) fit.
