Is My Helmet Safe?

Provided By: 

Key Points On Helmet ReplacementUltimately, the useful service life of a safety helmet is dependent on the intensity and frequency of its use. Helmet replacement is recommended even if only one of the under-mentioned points applies:    1. The helmet was subjected to an impact.    2. The comfort padding or the retention system has become loose due to heavy use or display signs of deterioration.    3. The synthetic foam padding displays signs of heavy use and the helmet feels too loose. Test: with the retention system fastened, the helmet turns to the side when you gently shake your head.    4. There are indentations in the EPS liner and/or white scratches can be seen on surfaces with black paint.    5. Even if none of these is applied, we, SHOEI, recommend replacement in 5 years after it's first purchased at retail.

Troy Lee Air Helmet

MXA PRODUCT TEST: Troy Lee Air Helmet; The Reimagining Of An Iconic Helmet Design


WHAT IS IT? An all-new Troy Lee Designs helmet that is designed for a different price point than their top-of-the-line SE2.

WHAT’S IT COST? $330.00.

WHAT’S IT DO? Troy Lee Designs entered the highly competitive helmet market in late 2002 with its Speed Equipment (SE) helmet. The SE made a big splash with its edgy design, colorful graphics and light weight. However, there were some fitment issues with the first-generation foam liners. And while those problem areas were eventually resolved, Troy moved forward with a totally new helmet design, the SE2, in 2007. The Troy Lee Designs SE2 helmets were the first to ever come with titanium intake vents, mouthpieces, visor screws and strap bolts. To pay for all of the exotica, the SE2 had a $495 price tag.

   For his 2009 line, Troy has developed a new helmet that is designed to hit a lower price point and improve on the original SE design. Using the SE as a starting point, Troy improved ventilation, decreased overall weight, lowered the price, redesigned the aesthetic and maintained quality. The new helmet was christened the Troy Lee Designs Air helmet.

WHAT STANDS OUT? Here’s a list of things that stand out with the Troy Lee Designs Air helmet.

   (1) Weight. Thanks to a composite fiberglass shell with carbon fiber and Kevlar reinforcements, the Air helmet tips the scales at three pounds—which is four ounces lighter than our previously tested SE2 helmet. The MXA wrecking crew applauds any helmet that can nail the three-pound mark.

   (2) Comfort. The original SE helmet was uncomfortable. As MXA pointed out in our original test back in 2003, the SE had several irritating pressure points (most notably on the rider’s forehead and top of his skull). Troy Lee learned from these mistakes and made the appropriate changes to the new Air helmet. The Air is very comfortable. Riders with round faces will find greater fitment with the Air compared to riders with narrow faces. The liner is super plush, thanks to a soft felt material.

   (3) Ventilation. Compared to the old SE helmet, the Air has a larger mouthpiece, as well as larger chin bar vents and rear vents. The Air helmet has increased airflow, which can be felt most noticeably late in a moto.

    (4) Eyeport. The Air works best with narrow goggles. Wider goggles (read Oakley and Fox) need to be pushed in on each side to properly seat the goggle to your face. Still, the Air’s eyeport can handle any type of goggle.

   (5) Options. You can choose from four different graphic designs with a total of seven colors. MXA tested the red/black Air Hot News model. The Air...

Nevada Motorcycle Insurance Regulations

Motorcycle License Requirements:
If you already have a motorcycle endorsement or Class M license from another state, Nevada will transfer it. In the state of Nevada, you will get a separate Class M driver license, rather than a motorcycle endorsement on an existing driver license. All classes, including Class A, B, C, and M, are listed on one license though, so you won't have to carry around separate licenses for your car and motorcycle.To add Class M to your existing Nevada license, you need to take an approved course, or take the DMV written test and a road test. If you're under 18, you will also need to comply with Nevada Teen Driving requirements. Obtaining an instruction permit is optional, but if you do not obtain the instruction permit, you are not allowed to ride until you have completed the skills test. Once you have the permit, you can ride with a licensed motorcyclist on a separate motorcycle, who is 21 years or olderand you're not allowed to carry passengers when you have the permit.When you do take the skills test, you'll need to make an appointment at the DMV office, but be aware that not all DMV offices administer the tests. When you go for your road test, the examiner will also perform a safety inspection on your motorcycle, and check your registration and insurance. Be aware though, that if you test on a motorcycle with less than 90cc, you will have a restricted license that allows you to ride only on that size bike or smaller.

Minimum Insurance Coverage:
If you want to ride in Nevada, you have to be covered. You'll need liability coverage for a minimum of $15,000 in bodily injury or death of one person, $30,000 for bodily injury or death of two or more persons in one accident; and $10,000 for property damage coverage. The state has an Insurance Verification Program to identify uninsured motorists, so be sure you're covered before you start to ride. If your insurance has been terminated and you haven't gotten around to getting a new policy, Nevada insurance companies will notify the state Department of Motor Vehicles. If you have lapsed coverage, you may be liable for a $250 reinstatement fee for each vehicle.

Helmet Laws:
Nevada has strictly enforced helmet laws, and everyone, regardless of age, must wear a helmet when driving a motorcycle, or when riding as a passenger on a motorcycle. There is just one exception, and that is for mopeds 50cc or less, with less than two horsepower.
