First and foremost, a quality helmet is a safety item. In some states, wearing a helmet is a legal requirement for both the rider and passenger. Other benefits include:
- Wind, rain, sun, bug, and snow protection when using a helmet with a visor
- Protection from flying objects kicked up by passing vehicles
- The risk of both concussion and facial injuries are reduced while using a full-face helmet.
- Hearing is protected.
As a regular practice, a helmet should be replaced every three to five years or whenever it is recommended by the manufacturer. Since helmets are designed as single-use, they are meant to be replaced after a crash or a bad drop. There are other reasons why you might need a new helmet, such as:
- Excessive sweating inside the helmet
- Use of hair gels and grease that will damage the liner and degrade materials and glue
- Damage to the foam lining caused by hanging the helmet on a hook or storing heavy objects inside when it is not in use
