Full Face Helmet: The total face helmet covers the entire head approximately the skull base and is among the most protective of all the helmets. It has a swiveling cutout band, called a visor, manufactured from transparent plastic over the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets include vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and deficiency of wind. Full-face helmets which can be popular for motocross or off-road rides do not sometimes possess a face shield but 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 lack of a face shield allows the rider to wear goggles and allow more airflow that's required during strenuous off-road rides.
