In any case, wearing any helmet is unquestionably better than not wearing one at all. The main three layers of the helmet that protect the rider’s head in case of an accident are hard outer shell, impact-absorbing Styrofoam liner, and inner, soft liner that provides snug fitment, moisture-wicking properties, and comfort.

The outer shell is designed to withstand the energy of impact without cracking and spreading it over the larger surface area to prevent puncturing.
