The above statistics clearly shows that across ten cities in India about 91 percent of respondents in the central city of Nagpur did not wear helmets as pillion riders, while this was about one percent each in the eastern city of Kolkata and north-western city of Jaipur during the survey period.

A good helmet should be part of any motorcyclist’s gear and you should never ever think of buying a cheap helmet for yourself.

    #1.  Vega Offroad Helmet (AKA Vega Motocross)

    Vega Motocross Helmet Review

    This one is my personal favorite and I’ve been using this helmet since last 1 year and so happy with it. Let me tell you why this helmet is my personal favourite.

    The look, comfort, feel, ventilation and everything is absolutely superb in this helmet. Due to this I am rate the Vega Motocross helmet as 5 stars. Also you can see most people rated this helmet as 4 stars on Amazon and Flipkart.

    I currently use the Helmet Motocross helmet (see below) that has a green skeletal type graphic design on the helmet.

    Vega has a great line-up of helmets available in India. Almost all helmets under the Vega brand are a big hit and bestsellers in India. The Vega Motocross helmet is one of the best and Top Notch helmet in India. It is available in 11 colors and in both Medium and Large sizes.

    Lets look at more details about the Vega Motocross helmet.

    Features

    • Superior fit and comfort provided using advanced CAD technology
    • Vents with high capacity intakes
    • Airflow from the front to the back which flushes heat and humidity out
    • UV clear finish
    • Scratch-resistant helmet and visor

    Outer Shell and Inner Padding

    Without a doubt the helmet has a strong built for your safety and a wonderful look. The inner padding is made of EPS lining to give you a comfortable padding. Also the inner padding can be taken out for washing/cleaning and can be easily put back inside the helmet.

    Visor and Air Ventilation

    The helmet has two inbuilt visors, internal and external. The external or the usual visor is scratch proof and can be replaced easily if you would like to replace it at a later point. The internal visor (sunglasses) protects you from the UV rays. This will give you the possibility of riding your bike without closing the external visor and you can drive at a fast speed because the internal visor acts as a sunglass protecting your eyes from wind, dust and insects.

    The helmet has vents that you can open and close as per your convenience. When driving within the city and highway you can drive with the vents open to get the airflow and so that you don’t sweat. When you are driving in the hills (in the himalayas) you usually ride at slow to medium speed. Therefore you can just keep the external visor open and the vents closed so that you can

    Weight

    I would not consider this helmet as a lightweight helmet as it is over 1 kg but it is not at all a heavy helmet. You can actually wear this helmet on your long rides including the long trips to Mountains.

    Should you buy the Vega Motocross Helmet?

    Yes definitely you should buy the Vega Motocross helmet because it is one of the best selling helmet in India. This helmet is selling like crazy and pretty common on the Indian roads across Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Manipur, Darjeeling as well as other cities in India. Everyone is loving this helmet. Ofcourse it would only suit you if you have a Royal Enfield, Harley Davidson or a racing bikes like KTM, Pulsar, Fazer, Hayabusa. I would definitely not recommend to go this far and buy a Vega Motocross if you ride a bajaj chetak or Honda activa.

    #2. Steelbird Adonis Helmet

    Steelbird is well known to give you the protection that you need while riding your motor bike. They have a number of models in all categories whether it is full face, flip up, open face or off road helmets.

    Without wasting any time lets get into the Pros and Cons of Steelbird Adonis Helmet.

    Look & Design

    The look and design of Steelbird Adonis helmet is average. It looks quite decent for office going or college going bikers. The helmet has a reflector sticker at the Top, starting from front and goes all the way to the back. Studds has launched this helmet in two variants – Classic and Dashing. The Adonis Classic helmet is completely black with a black reflector patch. The Adonis Dashing helmet comes with colorful stickers in blue, yellow, red or silver. Or your can impress your friends and buy all variants so you can wear one new color everyday matching your dress…just kidding :).

    Inner Padding & Shell

    This helmet is made of strong and durable ABS material that makes the helmet strong enough to survive impacts and keep your head safe. The helmet has silicon hard coating of black color for scratch resistance properties and it gives a matt black look. The helmet has a good amount of cushioning inside, which makes it feel comfortable.

    Visor and Air Ventilation

    Due to the design of the helmet the front of the helmet gets too close to the nose. This is not a major problem but its something that you will get used to. The visor is scratch resistant and offers a clear view of the road ahead.

    There are two vents in front of the helmet to allow airflow which also means that the dust would also enter straight onto your face and you cannot do anything about it. The vents have no option to close/open and therefore you will have to bear this. There are additional 2 vents at the back of the helmet to allow the air flow from the front to the back of the helmet and thus helping your head to have a cool head and free from any sweat. It would have been more useful if the vents would have been designed at the top of the helmet.

    The part of the strap that touches your jaws, has a cushioning that gives a comfortable feel.

    Weight

    The Steelbird Adonis weighs just about 1 kg. I don’t think I can consider it as a very lightweight helmet but yes it can be used on short-medium rides but not suggested for long rides due to its weight.

    Should you buy the Steelbird Adonis helmet?

    Well if you are not a regular bike rider and don’t travel very frequently on your motorcycle then you can consider the Steelbird Adonis helmet to be your companion for short to medium rides within the city. If you are a regular motorbike rider and travel everyday to your office or college on bike then you should definitely look at other options like Steelbird Air and Vega Crux.

However with that said if you are a rider that usually rides slow and steady and looking for a light weight helmet then the Vega Cruiser helmet could be the perfect choice with you. Overall the Vega Cruiser helmet is a good choice for motorcycle riders who are looking for a helmet within 1000 bucks range.

    Majority of the open face helmets come with half-face visor. A full-face visor offers complete protection from dust and particulate matter coming off the tyres of high speed vehicles/sand carrying trucks and trolleys in front of you on the road. Another great advantage of the the full face visor is that it does not let air rush into the helmet from the front of the face, thereby reducing the noise which can be a lot at high speeds.

    Always remember that if your helmet is not tight enough, it will move around on your head when you are riding and it can be noisy due to the wind. It may also come off your head in case of a crash therefore it is advised to always buy the helmet with the right size.

    The Studds professional is extremely successful and one of the best helmets in India in terms of both cost and quality. There are two main reasons people are buying this motorcycle helmet online – One it carries the brand name of Studds which is very well known for its quality. Secondly the helmet gives you full safety and great comfort with a brilliant design and superb look. Additionally this helmet will not hurt your pocket too much as its just around one thousand bucks.

    Should you buy this Helmet? 

    If you ask me this question I would say it depends on the kind of motorcycle I am riding. If I am riding a Pulsar, Splendor, Passion or a Yamaha RX 100 (all fantastic bikes by the way) I would definitely go and buy this helmet since this helmet would look well with these type of bikes. At the same time if I am riding a Harley Davidson, Royal Enfield, KTM, Bajaj Pulsar or a Karizma I would rather prefer a flip-up helmet like a Vega Motocross Helmet (my favorite helmet btw) since these type of bikes attract a lot of attention and therefore the helmet should also compliment the bike and the rider.

    Overall there is no question whatsoever that this is a fantastic helmet to buy. At a price point of just over 1000 bucks it is definitely a good choice for motorcyclists.

    #10. Autofy O2 Full Close Helmet 

    Autofy O2 Helmet Review

    Autofy helmets come with the latest designs in use and ISI 4151 certification to ensure your security. These latest catchy design and safe helmets are made of tough and high durable polycarbonate outer shell. This sturdy outer shell is used to prevent any sharp object to enter the helmet inside. Made of highly durable and sturdy polycarbonate outer material this hard shell can withstand heavy impact

    Inner Padding

    The helmet has polypropylene EPS inner lining works two ways both for comfort and safety by providing cushioning to the skull and adjacent areas. This polypropylene EPS inner liner has the best foam padding to absorb shocks and impacts. The inner liner increases the time of impact thereby causing the skull to decelerate and hit the helmet walls with less impact thereby preventing skull damage. These helmets have quick release strap mechanism where in the rider just pulls the plastic clip and drags the strap to unlock the helmet.

    Visor and Air Ventilation

    The front open visor less helmet gives a wide open front view while driving and can be used with stylish balaclavas for style statement. The side vents are present to maintain air circulation and lets you breath fresh air all the time which prevents dizziness during long drives and off roading. Its not mentioned anywhere if the visor is scratch resistant. My research tells me that the visor is quite good but not fully scratch resistant.

    Weight

    The weight of the helmet is only 600 grams and therefore quite light weight. It is recommended for boys who ride lighter vehicles like Scooty, Pulsar, CD100, Passion etc.

    Should you buy the Autofy O2 Helmet?

    I would not recommend this helmet for cruiser bikes like Royal Enfield and Harley Davidson because of the design of this helmet. The helmet covers your face from the Top to the Nose area leaving your Chin and Jawline completely unprotected.

    Anyways, there is not much to say about this specific model from Autofy as the helmet is available only in one color and one size – Black Color and Medium size. Overall if you look at the helmet it comes at a very cheap price of less than Rs. 700 which is quite less. If you compare this helmet with others in the market then definitely its not the best one that I would recommend.

    If you are planning to buy a helmet for your long term safety then I suggest you add Rs. 400-500 more and go for a much safe helmet.

    How to choose the best helmet

    Size

    Size is the most important thing it comes to mind when you are looking to buy a helmet. You need to ensure that the helmet you choose fits you absolutely perfectly. If the helmet you are wearing is loose then the it will move around your head when you ride making it very uncomfortable for you to ride. There are also chances that the helmet will get removed from your face incase of fall off if its not tight enough.

    At the same time if the helmet you choose is very tight then it be very uncomfortable for you and you will keep taking it off your head.

    Both these things defeats our purpose of having a helmet and therefore you should select the helmet with the right size.

    The first thing you need to do before buying a helmet is measure your head size. This short video will help you to understand how to take measurement of your head.

    Comfort

    Fitting a helmet is easy but will you be comfortable with it on? Well, I can say that comfort is an important choice. For me, the best choice is that the helmet will not annoy you while riding. It should have a soft cushion on the inside and should have proper air vents at front and Top or back side to allow proper flow of air. The front Air vents should have a feature to allow open or close the vent otherwise you will keep inhaling the dust if the helmet doesn’t have the feature to open/close the Air vent.

    Visor 

    Visors are very important part of the helmet and protects you from air, dust and insects when while riding. When buying a helmet online you should check if the visor is scratch resistant or not. Secondly it would be best if the helmet has a feature to replace the visors easily.

    Weight

    A very vital aspect of the helmet is the weight of the helmet. If the weight of the helmet is too heavy then you will not be able to wear it on long rides. Ideally the weight of any helmet should be between 800 – 1.3. Kgs. Any helmet that weighs more than 1.3 is considered heavy and might cause neck and should pains to you if you wear them on longer rides. 

    Design and look

    Apart from the above points another thing to look at the helmet is the design of the helmet and whether it will suit you or not. The look and feel of the helmet will attract the eyes. There are a lot of designs to choose from when it comes of color, the style, the size, the weight, and the fashion. The designs should also connect with your personality so keep that in mind.

    Cost

    You often hear this word from the shopkeepers when you go to a store – budget kya hai? (What’s your budget).  Helmet prices have a huge gap starting from Rs. 600 to 3,000+ and it depends on the brand and the design. Make sure that you select from the best of your choices and that it is safe for you. Also, know that you will get what you have paid for.

    Brand

    There are a number of motorcycle helmet brands out there but I can recommend the best helmet brands that provide the highest quality and have the best reputation. These brands are Vega, Steelbird, Studds, Autofy and some international brands like Shoei, HJC, KBC, Lev-3, Monster, Nolan, and Spyder.

    Certification

    Do you know that you can be fined by the Traffic Cop if the helmet you’re wearing doesn’t have an ISI mark (provided that cop knows the law). As per Indian law you need to wear the helmets with an ISI mark. The ISI mark is an assurance that the helmet is safe to be used by riders and the rider is in good hands when the helmet is safe.

    Why wear the Best Motorcycle Helmet?

    1. It will save you from being fined by the traffic cop standing at the next police barrier. You know there are numerous police barriers keeping an eye on bikers without helmets.
    2. Its a must-have safety gear to protect you from a serious injury incase of an accident. Remember the fault may not be yours while riding on the roads but you might have to suffer because of someone else’s mistake on the road.
    3. The helmet will protect you in all circumstances and is a must have while riding a motorcycle or scooter. The ratio of teenage motorcyclists is very high because youngsters do not take the advice of wearing the helmet and don’t understand the consequences of a head injury. Some of the key benefits of using a motorcycle helmet are
    4. Helps avoiding fatal head injuries.
    5. Protects your eyes and face from the wind, dust and flying insects
    6. Offers a maximum defense against hot and cold weather.
    7. Keeps your eyes secure from terrible lights of other vehicles
    8. Improves the comfort level by reducing wind noise.
    9. Promotes the sense of responsibility.
