Choosing the Best Accessories for Your Riding Helmet
- on January 28, 2021
Your motorcycle riding helmet is your companion for all journeys; short or long. Picking a motorcycling helmet as per your riding style and needs becomes imperative. However, to enhance the functionality of your riding helmet, there are a few accessories that we recommend.
Any brand of motorcycling helmet that you buy comes with a factory fitted visor. It’s usually a clear visor that accompanies your helmet however, it might not be the best one every time. For people who ride in sun mostly might need to get their clear visor replaced with a smoke or mirror visor. Brands such as AGV, Scorpion and MT offer different types of visors for various models, which can be replaced easily with the stock visor.
- Anti-fog Inserts
Riding in winters has the problem of fogging up on your helmet visor. One way to get rid of fogging is to keep your visor open, but that means not only will the cold wind hit your face but you will also encounter dust and pollution. Another way to fight fogging is to get an anti-fog insert installed on your helmet visor. These inserts work magically and prevent fog accumulation on your visor. Pinlock offers helmet specific anti-fog inserts, while Raleri has universal anti-fog inserts that can be used with almost all types of helmet brands.
- Helmet interior cleaner
The interior paddings of your helmet are the ones that absorb maximum sweat and dirt but washing them is a hassle which is definitely difficult to clean when on a ride. A helmet interior cleaner is a spray that helps sanitise your interior paddings, thus killing most of the germs present inside. Motul and Putoline offer this marvellous product that cleans your helmet interior in a jiffy.
- Helmet Exterior Cleaner
When riding for long distances, your helmet faces lot of dirt and insect attacks. Keeping a clean helmet thus becomes highly important. Vulcanet is a specially designed wipe that uses its honeycomb construction to capture and retain dirt safely. It’s a degreaser and bug remover too and is a waterless cleaner. Thus it qualifies as a must have product to clean your helmet exterior.
- Bluetooth Headset
Sena offers Bluetooth headset that can be easily installed on your helmet to provide you crisp communication sound quality and a wonderful music listening experience. They provide model variations depending upon your budget and feature requirements.
- Helmet Cover
A soft cushioned helmet cover can be a great choice to store your helmet at home and can also be used to keep your helmet safe when on rides. Dirtsack Shellsack is a multi-functional tank bag, tail-bag, backpack and a stow-away helmet storage bag. It can accommodate a full size helmet and its impact absorbent padded construction minimises the chances of bumping the helmet.
