Bluetooth Motorcycle Helmets
When you’ve been a rider for a long time, then you’ve probably experienced the solitude of riding at least once. Up until recently, there was no way to talk to your other riding buddies while riding—unless, of course, you pulled your helmet down which is downright silly. What’s more is that it was virtually impossible to talk to anyone to a different location while you were riding—up until now.
Bluetooth helmets are now all the rage. If you’ve wanted to listen to music while you were riding before, you’d have to install a handlebar radio. Not anymore.
Back then, finding places was also a huge problem. Well, that is until GPS arrived and it was not really suitable for riders since you always need to keep an eye out for the road. Now you have the option of your very own Bluetooth helmet to solve all your problems. What a great way to be alive indeed!
Bluetooth helmets, for one, lets you connect to your cellphone to have an actual conversation with anyone while you’re on the road. Being heard and hearing what the others on the other line are saying are now clear whenever you’re in the highway. For those more into innovation, you won’t even need a cellphone. You can talk directly on your Bluetooth helmet to talk to other riders who have the same Bluetooth system as yours, but be sure they are within connecting distance.
While talking is possible, you can also listen to your phone or MP3 music through your helmet. That is, without interference from the wind nor the engine.
They can also work like GPS units to help you find where you’re going much easily and less stressful.
Women’s Motorcycle Helmets
One of the most important aspects of your helmet is the fit, one that determines the protection that you’ll get. While fitting an open-face helmet is easier than a full-face helmet, one cannot be detrimental about the entire nature of security of it. Fitting a fully face helmet can indeed block your peripheral view or obscure you’re front view at high-speeds. But, a cozy fit may indeed be a mistake when you’re riding at 70 mph.
More than just paint and size, there should be an evident difference between man’s and woman’s helmets. For a woman, choosing the right helmet must fit snuggly enough so that it can’t be yanked or grabbed easily when you pull it. Rule of the thumb is: when you move your helmet and a little bit of skin moves with it and juggles but doesn’t necessarily hurt, then it’s a start of a good fit. Here’s where fitting gets a bit dicey for the ladies.
As for the ladies, they generally have a narrower face structure than most men. They, as well, have a smaller head diameter. One frustrating thing about a woman fitting a man’s helmet is that when it’s too loose on the cheeks, it fits their head. At the same time, if it fits their cheeks, it’s totally tight on the top of the head. Crazy, we know.
The color, graphics, and other features comes in second after you’ve got the right fit. This guide just focuses on the fit of women’s helmets and how they can easily know what will fit them accordingly.
