No one would classify a Shoei helmets cheap motorcycle helmets, but that does not mean you do not care about getting good value for your dollar. Good news about the Shoei helmet you know that you will never lack in the quality. Shoei helmets are some of the best in the industry and better than other brands which many believe can walk on water.
I recently had a chance to road test the Shoei RF-1000 motorcycle helmet and this is what I found. You decide for yourself if the Shoei helmet is right for you.
Shoei is recognized their use Advanced Integrated Matrix build the outer shell is very strong but lightweight helmet produce. The reason is obvious, but like a good helmet, they want to protect your scalp in the event of an accident. Shoei helmets are tested in wind tunnels and therefore they are very angle and is designed to cut the wind well. A quick road test and you can immediately tell that this is a very comfortable motorcycle helmet that has a few flaws and works well.
Another great feature I noticed was that the Shoei RF-1000 is a very comfortable helmet, which is good, because the helmet is a comfortable helmet that you wear. Shoei Sports removable cheek pads and chin strap covers are available in various sizes so you can customize according to your specific needs or likes.

Hawk Helmets and Bike/Motor Bike Safety

December 9, 2010 Leave a comment

A Hawk helmet is the best protective gear you can wear while riding a motorcycle. A helmet will not only protect your head from a potential injury, but also cut down on wind noise, windblast on your face and eyes, and deflect bugs and other debris that flies through the air. It will also protect you from changing weather conditions and reduce rider fatigue.

Last but not least, wearing a Hawk helmet is a reflection of your attitude toward riding and shows that you are a responsible rider who takes motorcycle riding seriously.
The expected turn around time from one Hawk helmet to another is three years (or a crash). If you have a crash, be sure to throw the Hawk helmet out and replace it. If you have the same helmet for three years be sure to get a new Hawk then as well.

There are a number of different Hawk available. Hybrid helmets allow you to slide the chin part of the Hawk helmet upwards. It’s useful for people who wear glasses or bifocals. Open faced Hawk helmets (also known as three quarter helmets) protect the ears and side of the face, but offers no chin protection.

There are many ways that you can have your own novelty motorcycle helmet. There are many shops that offer you a selection of novelty designs that you might find very attractive indeed. If this fails, you can always have one custom made for you. You can have a certain design for a helmet in your mind and you might want to have one. The best thing for you to get one is by having one custom made. That way, even your choice designs are made to your exact specifications, giving you a helmet that looks and also feels good on you.

Once you have your own novelty motorcycle helmet to use, you should be able to know how to take good care of it. Such motorcycle helmets may be tough and sturdy but they should be handled as a fragile item. In cleaning your helmet, try using only the mildest soap recommended.

Avoid using petroleum-based cleaning fluids and agents on your helmets as they can cause the protective layer of your helmet to decompose. Try not to drop your helmet on hard surfaces. A dent on your helmet would be enough to cause you discomfort when you wear it and its safety and protective properties may be compromised.

Do not store your novelty motorcycle helmet near gasoline, cleaning fluids, or in places with excessive exhaust fumes and heat. Materials that make up your motorcycle helmet may react chemically in such environments and may be invisible to the naked eye.

Read instructions carefully about painting or decorating your helmet. The material composition of your motorcycle helmet can change if painted or applied with decals. Try also to avoid hanging your motorcycle helmet on your side mirrors, turn handles or sissy bar. This can damage the inner liner of your helmet which can make it unusable after a short time.

Try to follow these tips to ensure that your novelty motorcycle helmet continues to provide you with the comfort and protection that it was designed for. Care and awareness is important in prolonging the life of your helmet.
