Motorcycle headgear are of 5 types and they are secured on the rider's head employing a chin strap. The objective of wearing them and their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap is not secured.
Full Face Motorcycle Helmet: The complete face helmet covers the whole head up to the skull base and is the most protective among all the helmets. It possesses a swiveling cutout band, known as a visor, created from transparent plastic across the front from 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 which can be widely used for motocross or off-road rides do not sometimes have a face shield though the visor and chin portions are extended. Head gear with less coverage is less safe.
Off-Road/Motocross Motorcycle Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road Motorcycle helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The lack of a face shield permits the rider to utilize goggles and allow more airflow that is required during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps the sun's glare from the rider's eyes during jumps.
Though off-road helmets was without a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets have a chin bar to protect the eye from impact during crashes. By putting on such helmets as well as goggles, the equal protection as from full face helmets is possible.
Modular/Flip-Up Motorcycle Helmets: Also known from the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid between your full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is on the pivot and is moved upwards to resemble a face helmet. The individual wearing the helmet may thus be capable of consume while not having to take away the chinstrap. They're favored by motor officers who will be on the move.
Modular Motorcycle helmets are likely to be kept closed while riding and the chin bar is maintained only once not riding the motorcycle. If the helmet is kept on view position while riding, the chance of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of a crash. However, those modular helmets which can be dual certified as full face and open face helmets provide a great level of protection regardless if employed in the open mode.
Open Face Motorcycle Helmet: The open face Motorcycle helmets cover a corner from the head, the ears and the cheeks along with have the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. A number of them have provisions for visors to be snapped on. The protection on the face is minimal when you use these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by goggles or snapping on the face shield protects the eye from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Motorcycle Helmet: Famous during the 1960s plus called the pudding basin helmet in britain, 1 / 2 Motorcycle helmet or &lsquoshorty' was preferred among road racers. The style is actually similar to a face helmet without the lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet will not offer a great deal of protection and the rider must wear goggles to protect your eye area. As a result of decreased safety that they offer, a couple of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the use of this half helmet.
