Womens Motorcycle Helmets - Women on Bikes

Jun 2, 2008
Motorcycle helmets designed for women are more fashion-oriented that those for men. For example, pink and purple are colors usually found in women's motorcycle helmets but would almost never be seen in a man's helmet. All in all, a woman's motorcycle helmet gives out a "fashion statement" more than the simple styles found in helmets for men.

There is a possible hazard with women's motorcycle helmets because safety, not fashion, should be the prime concern for buyers of motorcycle helmets. While manufacturers often rely on sex appeal for their designs, that should be a minor detail on the consumer's side when purchasing a helmet.

Women's motorcycle helmets are easily distinguished from a man's helmet. Women's helmets are often smaller. As well, colors and the design are geared toward one gender or another.

Since more and more women over the last three decades have been riding motorcycles, women's motorcycle helmets come in so many styles. A woman who wants a trendy and safe helmet need not sacrifice one for the other - she can get both in one helmet. An excellent example of a woman's motorcycle helmet that is both stylish and functional is the Icon Racing's "Hooligan Gloss Helmet." Although the name does not denote femininity, the helmet is shaped unmistakably for a woman and is available in a pink-purple hue. At the same time, this helmet has all the necessary safety features. It meets all the standards set by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Snell; it is made of a fiberglass shell; the dual-density styrene liner in the helmet reduces the risk of head trauma. This helmet is truly both beautiful and functional.

Being that men still outnumber women in motorcycle riding they are typically more practiced and skilled when buying helmets. When a woman decides to purchase a motorcycle helmet she should inform herself about the abundance of women's motorcycle helmets that are currently on the market. For instance, she should have a basic idea of what the D.O.T. and Snell standards require for safety in order to have their stamp of approval. She needs to know why it's imperative for a helmet to have a good fit in order to maximize its effectiveness. She also needs to understand what kind of trade-offs to expect regarding comfort, ventilation, and safety. Considering that women have such beautiful faces it should be included that they ought to purchase helmets that capitalize on facial protection.
