When you choose a motorcycle helmet, you are supposed to check quietness, ventilation/air flow, de-fogging, face shield (if any) ability to keep wind out, face shield ability to resist scratching, ease of replacing it, scratch resistance of shell, color/graphic design, weight, ease of fastening the strap and last, fit and comfort.
J.D. Power & Associates, an independent research company, measured for the 11th consecutive year, the overall satisfaction of bikers with their helmets. Arai ranks highest, followed by Shoei and Icon. Harley-Davidson helmets rank very well for design/styling and windshield. Overall satisfaction with motorcycle helmets has increased to its highest point since the study’s inception in 1999. All results by jumping (you may want to wear your helmet) HERE.
