Motorbike headgear are usually of five types and are secured for the rider's head utilizing a chin strap. The intention of putting them on and their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap isn't secured.
Full Face Helmet: The entire face helmet covers the entire head around the skull base and is the most protective among all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, termed as a visor, manufactured from transparent plastic through the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets also include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and lack of wind. Full-face helmets which can be commonly used for motocross or off-road rides usually do not sometimes have a face shield however the visor and chin portions are extended. A helmet with less coverage is less safe.
Off-Road/Motocross Helmets: Mototcross/Off-road helmets have extended visor and chin portions. The lack of a face shield permits the rider to wear goggles and invite more airflow that is required during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps sunshine's glare from the rider's eyes during jumps.
Though off-road helmets didn't have a chin bar previously, modern off-road helmets have a chin bar to guard the facial skin from impact during crashes. By wearing such helmets together with goggles, the same amount of protection as from full face helmets can be achieved.
Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Best known through the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid between the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is over a pivot and can be moved upwards to resemble a face helmet. The person wearing the helmet may thus manage to ingest and never have to get rid of the chinstrap. They are liked by motor officers who are on the go.
Modular helmets are often kept closed while riding as well as the chin bar is maintained only when not riding the motorcycle. When the helmet is kept in view position while riding, the risk of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of an accident. However, those modular helmets which can be dual certified as full face and open face helmets give a great level of protection regardless if utilized in the open mode.
Open Face Helmet: The open face helmets cover the trunk from the head, the ears as well as the cheeks such as the possess the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. A number of them have provisions for visors to be snapped on. The protection for the face is minimal when using these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by using goggles or snapping over a face shield protects the facial skin from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Helmet: Famous in the 1960s plus referred to as pudding basin helmet in britain, a half helmet or &lsquoshorty' was well-liked by road racers. The style is almost similar to a face helmet without worrying about lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet won't offer much of a protection as well as the rider must wear goggles to guard the eyes. As a result of decreased safety that they offer, a couple of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the application of this half helmet.
