Picking out an off road helmet. Before you set off on that next big off road adventure, you’ll want to make sure that you know what helmet you’ll be taking with you for the ride. If you think you can substitute a road helmet for its off road counterpart, think again.
Think comfort. Generally, when you’re off road, you’ll be riding at a much slower speed than when you are on a highway, so you’re going to be much more aware of the helmet. Because of this, it’s generally better to invest in something lighter, as well as something with better ventilation, since you’ll likely be encountering warmer climates during your off road journeys.
Goggles are great companions for any off road rider. They allow for heavy breathing with less fogging, allowing for greater visibility. What is more, in hotter climates, the foam lining on the goggles helps to absorb the heat and stop sweat from dripping into your eyes. These are also much better at keeping things like sand and dust out of your eyes.
Challenges of the road less taken. Off road helmets are generally designed to combat those specific obstacles you’ll face when you go off the beaten track. These helmets tend to come with larger eye ports to allow for accessories such as goggles, making them even more appealing. What is more, the peak visor will help to protect your eyes against the sun.
Of course, with these pros come a few cons that you’ll need to weigh up before making a purchase. Firstly, these helmets don’t offer a much protection against the elements, including cold and rain, and they don’t offer as much noise protection. However, if you’re looking for added protection, you could always invest in an adventure helmet.
