From there, we will have to combine design with safety and usability. Before stopping to choose, think about what use you are going to give to the helmet: Will you travel with it? Is it only for city? Do I plan to play sports?

Answer these questions and start by determining a minimum level of quality and safety. From there, it discards everything that is not homologated helmets and begins to probe the market. As you have seen, full-face helmets are the safest, so from that point of view, the type of helmet would be clear. Now, you know there are other options.

Of course, remember that the casco has to tighten you, but without bothering you. If you're not sure, leave it on for a while - 10-15 minutes should be enough. If after that time it still bothers you, maybe you should look for a bigger one. In any case, keep in mind that the padded parts of the helmet will end up giving way.

If you want an approximation between the size of your head and the size of the helmet, here you have the equivalence between inches of diameter, centimeters and helmet sizes.

No. The owners are just blindly trying to drive traffic to their "main" site.
Sometimes the things they promote aren't really appropriate for the forums they put it in.

Their time and money would be better spent in ACTUALLY FIXING the forum on that site......but marketing types don't seem to understand that.

The 10 Most Reliable Motorcycle Companies

Here at we get to ride all of the newest, latest, and greatest motorcycles on the planet. However, more often than not, our time with each bike spans the course of weeks, maybe months (but definitely not years), as new bikes are constantly flowing through our proverbial garages, waiting to get tested. This means we have reviews of almost every motorcycle on the market, but it also means that we lack firsthand experience learning about long-term durability and maintenance. So, when our readers ask about the reliability of a certain make or model, it’s a difficult question to answer, as reliability testing requires ownership for several years – something we simply aren’t in a position to provide.

Thankfully, the folks at Consumer Reports have compiled a motorcycle reliability study, gathering information from more than 11,000 riders, sharing their experiences on more than 12,000 motorcycles purchased new between 2008 and 2014. With this data, CR adjusted for mileage ridden over a 12-month span and estimated failure rates. Like golf, the lower the number (or percentage, in this case), the better the score. CR’s language in the link above is vague, using words like “trouble prone” and not defining what constitutes a failure. Nonetheless, the results are still relevant. Here they are, from worst to best.
