Modular Snowmobile Helmet
What is a modular snowmobile helmet and why do you need
First off, snowmobiling is a truly exhilarating sport and a
great activity to participate with friends and family. But it’s
also one of the most dangerous winter sports, especially if
safety precautions are not followed.
The majority of people injured on snowmobiles are men in
their 30s who are drunk and consumed drugs before taking their
snowmobile for a spin. And here is the alarming statistic, most
of these men were not wearing snowmobile helmets.
The reason for this, besides pure stupidity, is because they
like to laugh and talk to each other while on their sled.
That’s where a modular snowmobile helmet comes in.
A modular snowmobile helmet differs from normal snowmobile
helmets in the sense that although it covers the entire face,
you’ll be able to flip up the face shield and chin bar, so that
you can talk to the people around you easily. This gives you no
excuse for not wearing a helmet!
You can get a modular snowmobile helmet with various styles
and colors to suit your own unique taste. When choosing a
helmet, here are some factors you can look at:
- How easy is it to lift up the face shield and chin up
bar? You have to be aware that you’ll most likely be wearing
snowmobile gloves and might want to do this with one hand.
- A popular complaint is of the face shield constantly
fogging up. A good modular snowmobile helmet should have proper
ventilation at the top, side or rear to prevent this from
- How comfortable is it? Don’t take it for granted, try
out a few and check how it fits with your head. How comfortable
is the interior padding? Do they have other comfort features
such as cheek pads and ear pockets?
- How heavy is the helmet? Many snowmobile riders
prefer helmets made from composite materials.
- Finally, do you like the design. No matter how great
the features are, you’ll never be happy if the design doesn’t
suit your personality.
Remember, it is possible to have great fun and stay safe at
the same time. A modular snowmobile helmet is an investment
that you cannot do without.
