Skully Fenix AR Helmet provide three major functions, they protect the brain, the head and torso and other parts of the body that are exposed when in contact with things like rocks, concrete, asphalt, gravel, fire pits, ice, snow etc. Heads can be unprotected at anytime, but when they become damaged due to constant exposure to different conditions or objects, the effects of these injuries are devastating and cause severe damage to the brain. When you think of someone riding a motorcycle, you may imagine a scene of a huge rock rolling down towards the rider, crushing his/her skull, an effect that is all too real in real life. Motorcycle accidents involving head injury are the most common types of road accidents, and a number of people die each year as a result. Road accidents are not just accidents, though, there are many stories of people who have been hit by a tractor trailer, a car, a motorcycle, an animal, a skateboarder or someone driving an ATV. Each type of accident requires its own unique set of circumstances to ensure the severity of the injuries inflicted, and their potential long-term impact on the victims.
There are various helmet head protection systems available in the market, and it is up to you to choose the one that best suits your needs and budget. There are three main categories of protective headgear, those made of ‘cloth’, those made of foam (neoprene) and the three toned polyurethane shell helmets. The first two are very lightweight and are often used for activities such as cycling, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, swimming and a few other similar exercises. They are very inexpensive compared to the other two, however are less comfortable to wear and have a tendency to tear sooner than the others.
If you are looking for a helmet that is more secure and offers greater protection, then you might want to look at the polyurethane foam type, which has a tighter fit, a more secure closure and a little bit heavier. However, these helmets are a little bit on the expensive side, and they are not recommended for cycling. The shell, which is used for most three toned helmets is also quite thick and weighs a lot more than the others. The foam protects the brain from impact or injuries by providing an extra barrier between the skull and the outside world.
It is important to note that head protection helmets are made to fit each rider individually, so selecting the correct helmet should be done with proper care. Helmets that are not of the right size or are designed in an inappropriate manner could either result in injury or may be an impediment to riding. If the helmet does not fit well, it can act as a poor-fitting cover and won’t offer full protection to the skull. So make sure that the helmet fits well.
Wearing any kind of hat or headgear while cycling can reduce wind resistance and may also protect the rider’s eyes by shading the face. Using a chin strap can help prevent wind from entering the mouth of the helmet and may also be beneficial in low wind conditions. If you use a helmet that has a polycarbonate shell, it will be much better resistant to impact. However polycarbonate is also much lighter and may cause discomfort for some users due to its weight. So if you use a helmet that has a polycarbonate shell, select one that is lighter but which also offers adequate protection.
Some helmets use a system of sensors to detect other vehicle traffic close to the bike. There are modern models of helmets that come with such a system. This can be used as a safety measure. But bear in mind that these systems may not always provide full head protection. If the sensor is faulty, it may not work to your advantage.
