Make sure to choose a helmet that meets the safety standards!

Safety standards are a good indicator of safety when choosing a helmet. The helmets purchased in Japan are mainlyPSC", "SG", "JIS", "SNELL", "MFJThere are two standards. Here is a brief description of each standard.

PSC

Under the Consumer Product Safety Act, products that affect the lives of consumers are not allowed to be sold without a PSC. This is a mandatory standard for riding helmets, and riding on public roads with a helmet that does not bear the PSC mark is subject to a citation.

SG

While the PSC is mandatory, the SG standard is a voluntary standard for manufacturers. In the event of a personal injury caused by a defective SG-standardized product, compensation of up to 100 million yen can be paid.

Japanese Industrial Standard

JIS is also a voluntary standard. JIS certification is given to products that have acquired the Japanese Industrial Standards. The same as SG.

Since the acquisition is voluntary, it is not a violation even if you don't have it.

SNELL

The Snell Memorial Foundation was founded by the friends of Pete Snell, who died when his helmet broke off in a car racing accident, and is a non-profit organization that helps riders choose a safe helmet.

The SNELL standard, said to be the most stringent in the world, isAbout every five years the standards are reviewed and each time they get tougher.This is a feature not found in other standards. Also.Even when setting the test conditions, the most severe conditions are employed.This is a very thorough process.

2020 is the year of the once every five years SNELL standards update!

The big thing that's been updated in 2020 isM2020D and M2020R.This is the point at which the SNELL standard was split into
M2020D is a standard that emphasizes penetration resistance, similar to JIS and DOT.
The M2020R is likely to be closer to the European safety standard ECE, which focuses on shock absorption. Either way, it will still be subjected to rigorous testing.

MFJ

The MFJ is awarded to helmets certified by the Japan Motorcycle Sports Association, which governs motorcycle sports in Japan. Non-certified helmets will not be allowed to compete in MFJ sanctioned events. If you want to race as well, choose an MFJ-approved helmet.

Check to see if Shields has a clear view!

The quality of the shield is also important to pay attention to. Clear visibility is directly related to safety.Beware of shoddy products that can distort your vision or have difficulty with durability.

Helmet shields come in a variety of colors, including smoke and mirrors, but for nighttime riding, the clear shield is the only choice. If you're worried about the sun during the day.Choosing a helmet with a sun visor will save you the hassle of replacing your shield.

It also prevents the shield from fogging up."Pin lock sheet.is now a must-have! When choosing a helmet, it is recommended to make sure it can be fitted.

There is also a handy shield that changes color from clear to smoke under UV light.

On a side note, SHOEI hasThe color changes with the amount of UV light.There is also a photochromic shield. It changes color to "Smoke" in daytime and "Clear" in nighttime. Helmets that are currently available areHORNET ADV, EX ZERO, JO, X-Fourteen, Z-7, RYDIt is. If you're interested, check it out.

 

Ventilation and interior design are important factors for comfort.

A full-face helmet has a shell covering up to the chin and is highly airtight, which tends to trap heat inside. Ventilation is a function to exhaust the trapped heat to outside. In summer season, comfortableness of a full-face helmet is very different depending on the effect of ventilation, so it is a point to pay attention to when selecting a helmet.

Also, since the interior is the part that comes in direct contact with your skin, you should check whether it can be removed and washed, and whether it is comfortable to the touch. Ventilation and interior are important points that affect your comfort when you wear it.

Recommendations for lightweight helmets. Weight affects safety and fatigue.

The heavier the helmet, the stronger the centrifugal force in the event of an accident and the stronger the impact on the head. Therefore.Helmets that are too heavy are not recommended for safety.

Also.A heavy helmet can strain your neck and lead to fatigue while riding. Most manufacturers have about 1.It's kept to a weight of about 8kg, and a full-face helmet that weighs more than 2kg can be considered heavy.
Of course, light is not always better.
