Helmets and gear

Although there is no "best before date" sticker on a helmet, motorcycle helmets do have a maximum shelf life. Of course this partially depends on the use of the helmet, but that a helmet would last forever is a myth. The average life span of a helmet is 5 to 7 years before it needs to be replaced.

Let’s get into a little history lesson for our first ChromeBurner blog post. The subject of conversation for this month: helmets. The first motorcycle was sold in 1894. As you may expect, back then no one worried about safety and helmets didn’t exist. As time passed, motorcycles got faster and people started getting involved in racing their two-wheeled machines. With increased speed came an increased risk of getting injured and in 1914, British physician Dr. Eric Gardner invented the basic principle of a motorcycle helmet.
