Motorbike helmets are of five types and are secured towards the rider's head by using a chin strap. The objective of using them in addition to their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap just isn't secured.
Full Face Motorcycle Helmet: The total face helmet covers the whole head as much as the skull base and is the most protective of all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, known as a visor, manufactured from transparent plastic over the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets likewise incorporate vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and insufficient wind. Full-face helmets which are widely used for motocross or off-road rides tend not to sometimes have a face shield however the visor and chin portions are extended. A helmet with less coverage is less safe.
Off-Road/Motocross Motorcycle Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road Motorcycle helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The absence of a face shield permits the rider to wear goggles and enable 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 rays's glare off of the rider's eyes during jumps.

If your helmet is kept on view position while riding, potential risk of neck injury is greatly increased in case of this brief. However, those modular helmets which are dual certified as full face and open face helmets offer a great degree of protection even if used in the open mode.
Open Face Motorcycle Helmet: Outdoors face Motorcycle helmets cover a corner from the head, the ears along with the cheeks but don't contain the chin bar that a full face helmet possesses. Some of them have provisions for visors to get snapped on. The safety towards the face is minimal when you use these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by wearing goggles or snapping on a face shield protects the face area from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Motorcycle Helmet: Famous through the 1960s plus known as the pudding basin helmet in england, a half Motorcycle helmet or &lsquoshorty' was well-liked by road racers. The structure is practically similar to a face helmet minus the lowered rear.
