Motorcycle helmets are of 5 types and are secured towards the rider's head using a chin strap. The purpose of wearing them along with their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap isn't secured.
Full Face Helmet: The entire face helmet covers the entire head approximately the skull base and is easily the most protective of all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, referred to as a visor, made of transparent plastic throughout the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets have vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and deficiency of wind. Full-face helmets which might be commonly used for motocross or off-road rides tend not to sometimes have a face shield nevertheless the visor and chin portions are extended. Head gear with less coverage is less safe.
Off-Road/Motocross Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The absence of a face shield allows the rider to utilize goggles and invite more airflow that is needed during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps the sun's glare off 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 guard the eye from impact during crashes. By wearing such helmets in addition to goggles, the equivalent amount of protection as from full face helmets is possible.
Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Sometimes known by the name convertible, the modular helmet is a hybrid between the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is on the pivot and can be moved upwards to resemble a wide open face helmet. Anyone wearing the helmet may thus be capable of consume without needing to take away the chinstrap. They're well-liked by motor officers who're on the go.
Modular helmets are likely to be kept closed while riding and the chin bar is kept up only when not riding the motorcycle. In the event the helmet is kept in view position while riding, the chance of neck injury is greatly increased in case of an accident. However, those modular helmets which might be dual certified as full face and open face helmets provide a great a higher level protection even though employed in the open mode.
Open Face Helmet: The face helmets cover a corner from the head, the ears and the cheeks but don't hold the chin bar which a full face helmet possesses. A number of them have provisions for visors to be snapped on. The security towards the face is minimal when using these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by goggles or snapping on the face shield protects the eye from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Helmet: Famous in the 1960s as well as called the pudding basin helmet in the united kingdom, one half helmet or &lsquoshorty' was well-liked by road racers. The structure is practically similar to a wide open face helmet without the presence of lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet does not offer a great deal of protection and the rider has to wear goggles to guard your eye area. Due to decreased safety that they offer, a number of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned using this half helmet.
