Best Snowmobile Helmets Buyer Guide

Safety is the first requirement that you must check in a helmet, then there is the choice of the type and the right size. We talk about these and other aspects of our guide. Also, find out which are the most popular on the market this year: you can read the review in our ranking below.

Safety

Although the design, together with the price, often contributes to determining the purchase of a helmet, we must not forget that safety is the fundamental aspect to be taken into account.

But how can you be sure of the reliability of a particular model? It is necessary to check the homologation that is specified on the label, so we must be wary of helmets that are sold without.

It is also possible to obtain some useful information on the characteristics and manufacture, as long as you know how to decipher the cryptic abbreviations that are reported.

The statement that should never be missing is ECE 22-05, which corresponds to the most recent European homologation and indicates compliance with the most stringent regulations, the most suitable to guarantee maximum safety for the motorcyclist. It is rather interesting to understand what tests helmets are subjected to receive this certification.

In fact, a series of tests are carried out to test the response of the device in certain situations and climatic conditions. The helmet must pass tests of impact, rigidity, penetration (relative to the visor) and resistance of the strap, both in normal conditions and after being subjected to high and frigid temperatures and to the action of water, solvents and UV rays.

A further indication is that relating to another type of test, identified by the abbreviation Snell M2010, which does not replace those for homologation but, in a certain sense, integrates them. Hence, a model that should have passed these tests too proposes as one of the safest on the market.

Buying online it is easy to come across products not specifically made for the Italian (or European) market. Therefore you might happen to read the American homologation, identified by the abbreviation DOT (an acronym for Department Of Transportation, or the US Department of Transportation). The helmets that come from the United States have undergone checks and controls different from those on sale in Europe, therefore take this into account.

Type

Have you already decided which type of helmet to choose? There are two options available because you can choose between an opening model and a completely closed or integral one.

For those who use the scooter mainly for short trips or in summer, the best brand could be the one that makes jet or demi jet models because they ensure a higher passage of air on the face which is very pleasant in the hot season.

These helmets are also lighter, more compact, many have no problems being stored in the saddle pad or in the top case and can be worn in an instant.

If, on the other hand, you use your helmet even in winter or to move on large communication roads or highways, the air on your face is no longer pleasant and, with increasing speed, you have to deal with the sound of the wind that it can become really annoying, as well as with humidity, rain and insects.

The modular helmet is a solution preferred by many because it protects effectively even in winter and at a high pace. Still, in summer it allows you to move with the chin guard open, as long as it has the PJ approval.

Cut It

Compare prices, homologation and type but pay close attention to the size of the helmet you are about to buy. First, you need to measure the circumference of your head using a soft measuring tape and to pass it slightly above the ears, 2.5 cm above the eyebrows.

The measure thus obtained must be compared with the tables that you should always find indicated in the helmets of each manufacturer. The available sizes range from XXS, which corresponds to 51-52 cm, up to XXL, 63-64 cm. Not all companies, however, always have various measures possible.

Comfortable and Cool

The full-face helmet, since it will be used very often for long journeys in the saddle of your motorbike must first of all be very comfortable to wear.

And precisely this feature is enhanced by the AGV K-5 S helmet. The Italian company has provided inside the highest quality fabrics, which in addition to being very soft have the peculiarity of not having any type of stitching that can somehow annoy the centaur when wearing a helmet.

Seams are one of the problems of low-alloy helmets, which irritate sensitive areas of the face such as cheeks and forehead.

At the same time, comfort is guaranteed by a series of closable air intakes that allow air to circulate inside the helmet when the sun hits hard. This will enable you to have the right refreshment in the head even when the days are more torrid. When they are closed, therefore on colder days, you can be sure that no annoying draft will enter the helmet.

Light and Safe

Despite being very safe, this helmet model is also light. In fact, the outer shell has been made with a mix of carbon and fibreglass, highly resistant materials but famous for their meagre specific weight.

Even at high speeds, you can rest assured about head and neck stability. For this reason, AGV has provided a spoiler that gives the helmet the right aerodynamics that can be assessed when it opens to full throttle.

In order not to hear the annoying wind noise when the speed is high, for this model, AGV has prepared new wind protection that reduces noise to a minimum. The closure is a “two-ring” model which is among the safest on the market even if it requires a little practice to unfasten and fasten the helmet quickly.

Anti-Fog Visor

In the productive equipment of the helmet, which also includes a convenient carrying bag, there is a Pinlock visor that can be installed.

Inside the main screen to ensure that this does not include cloud when the air intakes (especially the one chin level) is closed to prevent cold air from entering. On sunny days you can count on the sun visor that can disappear inside the shell when not needed.
