Cycling is a matter of the mind - and no part of the body should be as well protected as the head when riding the Simson, MZ and Co. classics! Learn more about helmets and glasses
A motorcycle helmet protects the head of a cyclist from life-threatening injuries in the event of a fall by distributing an external force (such as that exerted in a collision or impact) from the helmet shell over as large an area as possible and damping it by the inner padding of the helmet. The visors of motorcycle helmets not only protect against wind, rain and snow, but are also impact and splinter resistant. In Germany, helmets are mandatory for motorcyclists, moped riders and scooter riders.
integral helmets, braincaps and jet helmets
Integral helmets have a fixed chin section and a visor that closes flush with the helmet. Due to their design, they offer the driver particularly good protection. Motocross helmets differ from integral helmets by the forward jumping chin section and by the fact that they have no visor and are worn with cross glasses instead.
Unlike integral helmets, jet and police helmets do not have a chin section and are therefore also called half-shell helmets. Some jet helmets are equipped with a visor, others are not. Because of their classic shape, jet and police helmets are particularly popular with riders of classic two-wheelers. A special form of the jet helmet is the so-called Braincap. While jet helmets also protect ears, forehead and neck, Braincaps leave these areas free.
