Q 1. What is better? 4 Point Or a 6 Point Helmet?

Ans. The impact of force is transmitted from the shell of the helmet on to the cradle through the cradle attachment points. These points also work to absorb the shock hence minimizing the impact of force on the user’s head. This is equally and effectively achieved by 4 point and 6 point helmets. KARAM offers the option of both 4 point and 6 point helmets which are tested and certified as per the safety norms. The user may make the choice as per his discretion.
