How do I choose a good retro helmet?
The first thing to consider is your budget. If you want to ride in style and comfort, then you need to be prepared to spend more money on your helmet. However, there are some great options out there for under $100 and even some that are under $50. The only real difference is that they won’t look as good or be as comfortable as their more expensive counterparts.

The next step is to decide what kind of helmet you want. There are many different styles available, including full-face and open-face models, but they all fall into one of three categories: standard, modular and half-shells. Standard helmets cover most of your head and neck and offer maximum protection from impact injuries such as head trauma or skull fractures. They also provide better impact absorption than other types of helmets, which means less force will be transferred to your brain during an accident—thus reducing potential damage caused by a crash.
