These 15 Reasons Will Make You Want To Wear A Helmet All The Time
Helmets are designed to protect the human skull during accidents
Current helmets are made from synthetic materials and other plastics that make them lightweight and they also have shock absorption capabilities. They are also made with aerodynamics kept in mind for bicyclists. Some helmets also include Kevlar and aramid.
1Save your head
The people who love riding motorbikes and cycles are the ones who need helmets the most as this image here shows how a fall of a speeding motorbike or cycle can damage a helmet badly. Helmets are designed to protect the head during a fall. Can you imagine the person’s head if this helmet wasn’t there?
2Look at the damage
There are many people who love the thrill of a speeding motorbike. These people love speeding like a bat out of hell on the highway and in traffic. One miscalculated move of their weight on their bike at a high speed can result in a devastating crash. This helmet is proof of how badly one can get hurt when they fall off at high speeds.
3Imagine the person without this
This helmet is of a person who crashed into a wall at 80kmph on a bicycle. If you didn’t think bicycle accidents are bad, think again. Look at the damage caused by the crash. Bicycle riders’ helmets are made of plastic, foam and other materials to protect the rider’s head during a crash and this helmet served this purpose and saved the life of the rider.
4Scratches are good on helmets, not on the face
Looking at the scratches on the helmet in this image can you imagine what the person’s face would’ve looked like had it not been for the helmet? A fall at high speed off a motorbike can lead to severe facial disfigurement. The disfigurement isn’t the only bad thing that can happen to the rider; they can also end up with severe brain damage.
When we talk about helmets may believe that they are only needed for people who ride motorbikes, cycles and work in construction in the general sense apart from the military. But kids and adult who partake in skateboarding or roller-skate also need to wear them. This broken helmet belongs to a skateboarder and just shows how much damage one can take in those sports.
