Helmet Strike Statistics

Graphic of where the helmet gets struck with percentages.
Percentage of Strikes by Location

No other area of the helmet gets struck in an accident as much as the chinbar.

Both sides of the chinbar together - which is the difference between a full face and a 3/4 helmet - gets struck 34.6% of the time. Over 1/3 of all accidents will hit the chinbar.

They shouldn't call a 3/4 helmet (75%) - it's a 66% helmet.

And half helmets ? You might as well wear a salad bowl. Looks just as cool so save the money.

Your helmet will only protect you 39% of the time - that's right in 61% of all crashes a half helmet doesn't protect you .
