Choosing the Right Helmet for Electric Scooter Safety: A Buyer’s Guide

When it comes to riding an electric scooterWhen it comes to riding an electric scooter , safety should be your top priority, and choosing the right helmet is a key part of that. But with so many helmets on the market, it can be daunting to figure out which one you need. The ideal helmet for electric scooter riders should combine comfort, visibility, and, above all, protection.

First and foremost, you'll want to consider the safety standards. A good electric scooter helmet should meet or exceed safety certifications such as ASTM, CPSC, or EN 1078. These certifications ensure the helmet has undergone rigorous testing for impacts and penetration resistance.

Full-face helmets, although bulkier, offer the most protection, as they cover more of your head and face. These are especially recommended for higher-speed electric scooters, often capable of speeds exceeding 15 mph. If you're using your scooter at lower speeds, a commuter helmet, similar to those used for biking, may suffice. These helmets are lighter and typically have good ventilation, making them ideal for everyday use.

Best Value: Levy LED Scooter Helmet

Combine style and safety with Levy Electric's Basecamp helmet line, with a timeless look and modern features. It has a built in, rechargeable LED light on the back, and comes in a nice matte Black and bright Blue for those who prefer something with stronger daytime visibility.

Another factor to consider is visibility. Many accidents occur because riders are not visible enough to others on the road. Hence, opting for a helmet with reflective materials or even integrated LED lights can be a wise choice to increase your visibility during dawn, dusk, or night riding.

Comfort is also crucial. A helmet that doesn't fit properly can be distracting and can even undermine the protection it is meant to provide. It should sit snugly on your head without being too tight, and it should sit level on your head with the front edge one inch or less above your eyebrows. A helmet with adjustable straps and a dial-fit system can offer a more customizable fit.

Lastly, consider a helmet with additional features like a sun visor, which can be useful during sunny days, or a built-in camera mount if you like recording your rides. Accessories like these can enhance your riding experience.

To sum it up, the perfect helmet for electric scooter riders is one that is certified for safety, fits well, and is appropriate for the speed and type of your scooter. Always remember, no ride is too short to compromise safety, and a helmet is a small investment for your wellbeing.

Remember to replace your helmet after any significant impact or every few years as materials can degrade over time, ensuring you always have optimal protection as you ride.
