Motorcycle headgear are usually of 5 types and therefore are secured on the rider's head by using a chin strap. The goal of wearing them in addition to their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap isn't secured.
Full Face Motorcycle Helmet: The full face helmet covers your entire head as much as the skull base and is the most protective among all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, referred to as a visor, created from transparent plastic across the front with the eyes and nose. Some helmets include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and not enough wind. Full-face helmets that are frequently used for motocross or off-road rides usually do not sometimes use a face shield however the visor and chin portions are extended. A helmet with less coverage is less safe.

However, those modular helmets that are dual certified as full face and open face helmets provide a great degree of protection even when employed in the open mode.
Open Face Motorcycle Helmet: The open face Motorcycle helmets cover the trunk with the head, the ears along with the cheeks such as the hold the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. A number of them have provisions for visors to be snapped on. The safety on the face is minimal when you use these helmets.

Half Motorcycle Helmet: Famous throughout the 1960s and also known as the pudding basin helmet in the united kingdom, 1 / 2 Motorcycle helmet or &lsquoshorty' was popular among road racers. The look is actually similar to an empty face helmet without the lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet will not offer a protection along with the rider has got to wear goggles to safeguard the eyes. Due to decreased safety they offer, a couple of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the use of this half helmet.
