Interestingly enough, as important as helmets are for safety, since the 1990's, there have been little new technological advancements. The reason is that in order to sell helmets that people will wear, they need to look good, feel good, and not look like helmets. A helmet that should be worn, providing the best protection is heavy and hot. While the standard helmet available today may not be the best, you should still wear a helmet over not wearing anything at all. In fact, when it comes to scooters and bikes, many states are now requiring helmets to be worn.

Other constraints found with helmets are that the laboratories used for testing do not necessarily use a standard set of test guidelines. In other words, the tests replicated from one laboratory to another do not have the same testing, which means the results are not uniform. Another problem has to do with the lack of precise medical data as to how much protection is required to prevent the worst possible head injury as opposed to a mile concussion. Experts in the field of medicine have varying opinions, which only leads to the non-standard helmet.

If you were going to have the "perfect" helmet that should be standardized across the board, it would include some of the following:

  • One laboratory that handles the design and a standard set of protocols for all laboratories to test. The helmet should have different weight head forms that could fit better to the rider's head shape. Additionally, the material used should be comfortable, representing the minimal amount of risk.

  • It is common to find injuries sustained from the helmet becoming displaced from the rider's head in a hard hit accident. There needs to be a test designed that can address displacement, leading back to a helmet that fits properly and not a "one size fits all" solution.

  • Comfort is one of the main reasons that riders of scooters and bicycles avoid wearing a helmet. Riders complain that the helmet moves about and rubs on the neck, is too hot, too heavy, or limits the visibility range.

  • There should be a test that looks into various shapes without using the elongated shape that projects and could get snagged on low hanging foliage or other elements causing the rider to be pulled off the scooter or bicycle.

  • Riders have mentioned that they would love to see some type of breakaway mirror and visor.

    As you can see, these are just a few of the changes that could improve a riding helmet, leading more riders to wear them, which would result in less injury.
