In a 1980s commercial for the helmet manufacturer Bell had the slogan: "If you've got a $10 head, wear a $10 helmet". Nowadays it's a deeply-ingrained and widely accepted idea among bikers that it's worth spending a lot of money on your headgear. A top-of-the-line Arai can sell for almost four figures, particularly if you want a nice race rep design, but what are you getting for your money and, in particular, is it any safer than a helmet you pick up for a tenth of that price?
I was really confused about buying my first body armor suit and helmet due to a small accident I had slipping and scraping my right side. That was about one year ago in a Wallmart parking lot. Someone must have had a serious oil leak. It took me almost three months to fully recover. My state doesn't require any helmets so I only had shorts and a tee on. My wife, insisted I get proper protection, especially for my head. This Christmas she bought me my first body armor suit and a helmet called Arai, I never heard of the brand but knew she spent some good money on both gifts. I'm here because she saw the value in protection and not the cheap stuff that I would buy. A car ran a light and hit me as I was doing over 50 miles an hour. I flew in the air and landed on my head. The paramedic said “ Buddy that helmet saved your life’. She bought everything from all American biker and I just wanted to personally thank your company for taking the time to inform my wife as she knows less than I do on what to buy for me. If anyone reads this, do yourself a favor and don't be cheap with your life. If your gonna ride always ware a helmet ALWAYS!!! Thanks Again All American Biker.
