Motorbike helmets are of five types and they are secured to the rider's head by using a chin strap. The intention of wearing them in addition to their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap isn't secured.
Full Face Helmet: The complete face helmet covers the complete head as much as the skull base and is regarded as the protective of all the helmets. It possesses a swiveling cutout band, referred to as a visor, made from transparent plastic across the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets likewise incorporate vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and not enough wind. Full-face helmets that are widely used for motocross or off-road rides don't sometimes have a face shield nevertheless the visor and chin portions are extended. Head gear with less coverage is less safe.

Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Sometimes known with the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid involving the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is on the pivot and could be moved upwards to resemble a wide open face helmet. The person wearing the helmet may thus be capable of eat and drink without needing to eliminate the chinstrap. These are well-liked by motor officers that are on the road.

Half Helmet: Famous throughout the 1960s plus referred to as pudding basin helmet in england, 1 / 2 helmet or &lsquoshorty' was well-liked by road racers.

As a result of decreased safety that they can offer, a few Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the use of this half helmet.
