Carbon fiber motorcycle helmets are not just another type of motorcycle helmets but considered as a pinnacle in the industry of helmets where CF helmets are lighter and stronger than standard motorcycle helmets. This lightness will not only seen in open-face but also in full-face helmets as well. Plus, CF helmets fulfill the most important role of distributing the energy upon impact and transfer equally across the entire fiber. Although, carbon fiber uses by weaving into a fabric and also combined with a plastic resin to create an extremely strong and flexible shell. HJC RPHA 11 Pro helmet is an example of such carbon fiber shell which is in composition with aramid, fiberglass, and the organic non-woven fabric. HJC named this technology as Premium Integrated Matrix Plus (PIM+) which is available in a premium line of HJC helmets.
Importance of Carbon Fiber Helmets
Carbon fiber is a technology which has been developed and been around for half a century. Back then it was recognized as a black stuff which was quite popular in the aeronautical industry where it was used for aircraft components. But, it’s been only a decade when it was first introduced to motorcycle helmets. Carbon fiber is almost three times lighter than the steel and has the atoms bonded together in a crystal form. Which is why first appeared in top-level motorsport like Formula 1 where lightweight and strength are necessary for safe driving and maximum performance. Now, carbon fiber is using by many top helmet manufacturers to create motorcycle helmets which have the strength to stand against heavy impacts and lightweight enough to wear all day. Plus, a motorcycle helmet must have a certain amount of flexibility which can absorb energy from the impacts without passing through our brain.
After all, it is a material strong enough for a plane. So, of course, it will be strong enough for our head.
Tensile strength is not the only reason to buy CF helmets. Carbon Fiber not only good for providing crash and impact protection but also offer an added level of noise protection which certainly important for any motorcycle rider to concentrate on traffic sounds and riding. Overall, we can say that Carbon Fiber motorcycle helmets added more value in riders’ safety, durability, and comfortable riding for a long duration. You can select from the wide range of collection of Carbon fiber helmets available in the market in a variety of style, shape, and sizes etc.
