Helmet use did not hamper the ability of riders to see traffic or increase the time needed to visually check for nearby traffic. Overall, any negative inference of helmets on rider vision appears to be minor, especially in comparison to the protection offered by helmets should a crash occur.

The hearing test also showed that there were no significant differences in the riders' ability to hear auditory signals. At any given speed, helmets neither diminished nor enhanced hearing.
