Hi Anurag,

Very informative thread, I especially liked the first picture of fools gear.
I am more of a car guy but I advocate wearing branded helmets to everyone.

You seem to gave worked really hard for sourcing the information, gave it a well deserved 5 stars..

Thanks for the highly informative thread Anurag! Appreciate the effort you put into compiling the thread that explains helmet testing in such detail.

I relied on the SHARP UK website while choosing my most recent helmet. Although the exact same model was not available on the site but the ratings of helmets in the same range and of the same make helped me make up my mind.

I too own a SHARP tested LS2 helmet though I bought it from a site and not online as fit and comfort Cave be treated online as many do. You are sourcing the helmet from?

Try this thread:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...post-78-a.html

Has truckloads of information!

As for the style, I wouldn't suggest anything apart from a Full Face helmet to anyone. It is the safest option out there. More so when the chin will take a lot of impact in case of a fall. Wouldn't want anyone to lose some teeth!

Thanks Ashwin. I was considering a half face helmet and after reading through, I definitely want to keep my teeth intact Safety first, Style later

Anurag, this is a very informational thread and your detailed effort is worthy of all praises.

It is hightime that we, Indians wake up to our own safety. I see so much negligence of safety by people on road everyday while commuting. No helmets, improper helmets, a pillion without helmet, 4 people on a bike, no body using seatbelts in cars plus that rash driving and a damn to traffic rules. No wonder, we at India have one of the highest road mortalities. We all abuse the authorities and the Govt. to comeup with laws to make abs/airbags and other such things compulsory. But we are hardly using the measures available to us right now like sane driving, proper helmets & paying regard to the rules. Why such duality of standard within us?

I hope people value their safety. One mortality on road does not affect just one person; in fact, the entire family is affected.

Regards,
Saket

Racking up my own thread again as I came across guides for choosing the right helmet for any rider. The below tutorial is great for spreading the basics and the knowledge amongst all.

Here it is:

Helmets: Testing Procedures & Standards-1.-helmets.jpg

Helmets: Testing Procedures & Standards-3.-helmets.jpg

Helmets: Testing Procedures & Standards-4.-helmets.jpg

Helmet - Buying Guide

There are 4 broad categories of Helmets in the market:
  1. Full Face
  2. Open face
  3. Motocross
  4. Flip-up

List of Open-face helmets

List of Full face Helmets

List of Motocross helmets

List of Flip-up helmets

PS: I have no connection/affiliation with Amazon or their sellers. I have just put this for spreading the knowledge. Thanks.

Govt appoints panel to redesign helmets suitable for smaller Indian head sizes. Then what did ISI certified mean?

The expert panel, appointed by the road transport and highways ministry, will suggest ways to make “tropical helmets”.
Quote:
even the glass used in helmets is a safety hazard, especially at night.
Quote:
The government has appointed an expert panel to redesign the helmets after it emerged that the certified protective gear currently in market adheres to European standards, which makes the helmets bulky and stuffy, and thus not suitable either for the smaller Indian head sizes or the country's hot tropical weather.
Quote:
With the new helmet design, the ministry hopes that the number of helmet users would go up in the country, leading to fall in number of road fatalities.
As per the upcoming safety norms, all two-wheelers in India will have automatic headlamps on (AHO), similar to daytime running lamps in cars.
There is also a proposal to fit a sound device on vehicles which will automatically honk in case the vehicle meets with an accident.
This will alert passers-by and people around of an accident site.
