Why do people not wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle?

Myths and facts about wearing helmets

Many reasons come to mind. Some people think they are uncomfortable. Others think they are too hot and only wear them when it's cold out. Some riders believe they limit what you can see and hear, and most often, bikers think they have a right not to be told what to do.

Bikers from the '60s and '70s wore uncomfortable big heavy helmets. Today, you can find helmets that will not only fit you correctly but be comfortable for all-day rides. Today's helmets have a wide variety of designs from full face to 3/4 and open face or half shell helmets that allow you to enjoy the freedom of wind therapy. DOT-approved beanies or Micro DOT Helmets enable you to ride in states requiring helmets with both freedom and comfort while protecting you from severe injuries on the road

How do you buy the right helmet?

Why considering a low profile helmet?

Open face helmets date back over 100 years. Today's models are advanced and as safe as manufacturers can make them. These biker helmets might not be considered the safest; however, they are a lifesaver when someone who does not wear a helmet has a brain bucket on when someone cuts him short. So, a low profile Micro Dot helmet is a synonym of freedom and safety.

There are many reasons to choose an open face helmet over a full face helmet. The most obvious is comfort. They also offer a fresh and less claustrophobic experience that gives you a greater connection to the elements and nature. These do not strain the neck so that you would love them for their trendy nature and the lighter feel. 

Open face helmets allow greater peripheral vision increasing awareness of cars, traffic lights, pedestrians, or other riders.

What You Should Know About Motorcycle Helmets

What You Should Know About Motorcycle Helmets

A Biker helmet, including microdot helmets, also known as beanies for their low profile and smaller dimension, work in three ways:

  • It reduces the deceleration of the skull, reducing the shock in the brain. The padding material in the helmet absorbs some of the impacts. 
  • It spreads the forces over a greater surface area, not on a particular site of the skull.
  • A biker helmet acts as a mechanical barrier between the head and the pavement preventing direct contact and injuries.

These three functions are achieved by combining the properties of four essential components of the helmet:

  1. The shell: In a micro slim beanie helmet, the shell is the strong outer hard surface, usually with a smooth exterior finish. It distributes the impact over a large surface area, lessening the energy of the crash. All helmets, including micro helmets, are designed to compress and break when it hits anything hard. The shell of the MicroDOT Helmet protects the rider against penetration by small, sharp, and high-speed objects. It also covers the padding inside the helmet from abrasions and raps caused by daily use. 
  2. The impact-absorbing liner in all biker helmets and also in micro slim beanie helmets is made of a soft, crushable padded material called “Styrofoam.” This dense layer cushions and absorbs the shock of the crash. 
  3. The inner comfort padding in helmets, including the smallest dot-approved helmet, is the soft foam-and-cloth layer next to the head. It helps keep the head comfortable and helps the helmet fitting snugly. 
  4. The retention system or chin strap in a micro dot helmet is the mechanism that keeps the helmet on the head. A strap is connected to each side of the shell. Chin and neck straps are designed to keep the helmet in position when riding.
