Carbon fiber helmets are available in all type, models and sizes including half, full face and mx styles. Carbon fiber is created with thin strands of carbon that are woven together to create a ‘blanket’. To make a permanent shape, the ‘blanket’ is laid on a form and then coated with a stiff resin or plastic. Carbon fiber is quickly becoming a popular material for creating lightweight motorcycle helmets because it is five times as strong as steel but weighs about two-thirds less. This is why a lot of bikers are now choosing a carbon fiber helmet to add to their collection.
