Does a bike helmet really protect you?

Research conducted recently shows that the usage of helmets reduce the risk of serious head injuries by nearly 70%, 33% for face injury and 65% for fatal head injury.
These outcomes propose that strategies created to increase the usage of bicycle helmets need to be taken into consideration in conjunction with other injury prevention techniques as part of a comprehensive cycling safety plan.
At first sight, a cycle helmet appears similar to every other hat, however look extra closely and you will see a lot more thought and technology has gone into the design. A standard helmet has two primary components: a hard outer shell and a soft inner liner. The hard shell is designed to spread the force of an effect over a broader area so your cranium is much less in all likelihood to fracture, while the soft liner is supposed to squeeze inward and take in the impact energy, so less of it is transmitted into your head.
People used to think that bicycle helmets were uncool, but that's not the case anymore. You would never find any professional cyclist racing on the road or a track without a helmet fixed firmly to their head and helmets are so much better than they used to be.
Riding without a helmet is never a wise idea, so we really advocate driving a motorcycle with the use of one.
