How To Make Your Motorcycle Helmets Last Longer?

How to Care for Your Small Motorcycle Helmet? 

Your helmet supports you on your trips. So, it is only fair that you take care of it after each ride, not just to extend its lifespan but to ready it for future motorbike rides. 

Warning

-Do not use alcohol 
-Never use pressurized water,
-Never use canned air or dusting gas.

  1. In general, place it and keep it inside the original bag or case to prevent damage on the surface if you drop it.
  2. We recommend avoiding modifying, painting, or personalize it, as this could reduce its protective capacity and will void the warranty offered by the manufacturer.  We spend many hours studying in laboratories, and a modified helmet may be less safe.
  3. If you are using a new cleaning product, test it in a small area to make sure you are using the right cleaning product and avoid surprises.

Benefits of Wearing a Headband During your Rides

You may be researching what is the right ponytail headbands to complement your partner’s look when riding on your beautiful bike. 

In some cases, you could get away with tucking the ears into a wool cap. Still, it may be necessary to wear proper headgear in other cases.

Things you may consider: 
  1. A Beanie or a Headliner to wear under your Helmet
  2. A Set of Ear Warmers that attach to the Helmet
  3. A headband with a ponytail hole to keep an impeccable look while riding.

The under-helmet ponytail headbands keep the hair in place, ears covered, and the head sweat-free during your riding, hiking, rally, or any outdoor activity you have on the schedule.

What Are Motorcycle Helmets Made Of?

What Are Motorcycle Helmets Made Of?

What is the Helmet Material?

Unlike any other motorcycle gear piece, the materials used in low profile half helmets get chosen with much care. The helmet material must take the force of the impact and absorb the kinetic energy on a larger surface area than the rider's skull. Motorcycle crashes happen at different speeds, and it could impact different areas of your head.

What are the different helmet materials?

The most common materials used for construction of low-profile Micro DOT half helmets are:

  1. Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) 
  2. Carbon fiber 
  3. Fiberglass 
ABS helmets are the most popular ones!

The most common type of helmet material used is ABS. A typical astronaut helmet like those worn in the Apollo missions is made of highly strengthened polycarbonate ABS. Polycarbonate is a high impact-resistant plastic that you can also find in bulletproof glass and exterior automotive parts.

High-performance engineering plastics are a natural fit for the aerospace industry, automobiles, and motorcycle Helmets. It is lightweight compared with other industrial materials. It has half the density of aluminum or glass and 1/6th the density of steel. 

Thermoplastic materials are engineered to have the durability, impact resistance, and fire resistance required for Space Helmets and, of course, MicroDOT Helmets.

Safety Tips for Bikers When Riding a Motorcycle at Night 

According to the CDC's data, the risk of suffering an accident at night is doubled compared to having an accident during the day. That is why it is essential to take extreme precautions when there is reduced visibility.

If you are a biker that usually doesn't wear a biker helmet during the day, we strongly recommend you to wear the Smallest DOT Beanie Helmet that is DOT approved, like a MicroDOT helmet when you are riding at night. That is one way you ensure your safety, security, and life. If you love riding along the roads with your bike, do so while wearing a Micro DOT helmet.
