This product is intended for the purpose of protecting the face from flying insects and airborne particulates such as rain, sand, or rocks small enough to fit into the tread of a tire. It is NOT designed to protect the rider from facial or cranial injuries as a result from impact with objects, surfaces, wild animals, human beings or beings from another world during an accident or unintended use. Any rider using this mask assumes all liability for any injuries that occur as a result of this mask being subjected to any circumstances outside it’s intended use.
In short, if you don’t want to risk this getting stuck in your head or any place else just as uncomfortable ride safe and be aware of your surroundings pal. Your most important safety device is what’s between your ears. Keep it there…
A further FYI.
Considering that about 96% to 98% of all motorcycle accidents involve injuries and 20% of those injuries are to the head and neck the possibility does exist that the mask can contribute to further injuries. But to put things into perspective you must first be in an accident that results in injuries. Then there is a 1 in 5 chance that the injuries could involve the mask. However you must strike an object that can catch the mask at which point it may cause injury or simply be remove from your face. And if you are striking an object something unpleasant is going to happen to you anyway with or without the mask.
It is strongly recommended that all riders, regardless of experience, take a riders safety training class. Whether you are a beginner or an old hand who needs a brush up it can save your life.
