When it is time to get a new helmet, you would surely want to be confident that the gear you’ve picked up could protect you from harm in case of a collision. At the same time, the weight of a helmet may be an issue. If it is too heavy and uncomfortable, you would feel reluctant to wear it for long-distance trips. The majority of modern helmets share the same basic construction consisting of a hard outer shell, Styrofoam layer, and soft inner liner.

The inner padding may have antibacterial and moisture-wicking properties. It is designed to provide precise fit and comfort. The Styrofoam layer must absorb the energy of impact in case of a collision. The more this energy is spread across the helmet surface the better. This job is performed by the outer shell.
