Dual sport vs Street helmet – what to take?
Today’s topic is going to be about the most important gear – the helmet. Which one to take on a long motorcycle trip. Stay with me and I will give you my opinion about it.
So let say that you already planned your trip. The bike is ready, the money are fact, but you still wondering which helmet to take. It’s a good question and I will try to answer it as simple as possible. Maybe the best option is to buy a modular helmet, something like Schuberth or Shoei, but not everyone is ready to spent 5-600 hundred dollars for helmet. I am not going to review the offers from the market, there are thousands of models. What I will do is to give you few ideas to think about.
During the years I have used any kind of helmets:
You can find tons of information in Youtube and compare each one of the models. They all have pros and cons.
Don’t forget that we talking about the choice of helmet for a long motorcycle trip.
What that is mean?
1. The helmet need to be comfortable – light, but safe. You will have many riding hours and it need to be already proof before the trip.
2. To be as quiet as possible.
3. Easy to operate, put it in or out.
4. Easy to lock and unlock.
5. Easy to clean.
6. Possibility to lock it to the bike. Some open face helmets are not possible to lock. It needs to be something easy to forget in the case it get stolen.
7. Suitable for any weather changes and any terrains.
After all that I just said I will reduce the possible choices to just two options:
Dual sport and Street helmet.
