Motorcycle helmets are of 5 types and are secured to the rider's head utilizing a chin strap. The goal of wearing them along with their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap is not secured.
Full Face Helmet: The entire face helmet covers the whole head up to the skull base and is among the most protective among all the helmets. It features a swiveling cutout band, referred to as a visor, made of transparent plastic across the front from the eyes and nose. Some helmets have vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and not enough wind. Full-face helmets which might be frequently used for motocross or off-road rides don't sometimes use 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 put on goggles and permit more airflow that's needed is during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps sunlight's glare off of the rider's eyes during jumps.
Though off-road helmets did not have a chin bar previously, modern off-road helmets use a chin bar to shield the face from impact during crashes. By putting on such helmets together with goggles, the equivalent amount of protection as from full face helmets is possible.
Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Best known by the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid relating to the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is on the pivot Anybody wearing the helmet may thus have the ability to drink and eat without needing to eliminate the chinstrap. They may be favored by motor officers that are on the go.
Modular helmets are often kept closed while riding as well as the chin bar is maintained only if not riding the motorcycle. When the helmet is kept in view position while riding, the chance of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of a crash. However, those modular helmets which might be dual certified as full face and open face helmets provide a great degree of protection regardless if found in the open mode.
Open Face Helmet: The open face helmets cover a corner from the head, the ears as well as the cheeks along with hold the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. A lot of them have provisions for visors being snapped on. The protection to the face is minimal when using these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by putting on goggles or snapping on the face shield protects the face from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Helmet: Famous throughout the 1960s and in addition called the pudding basin helmet in the UK, a half helmet or &lsquoshorty' was loved by road racers. The look is actually much like a wide open face helmet without worrying about lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet won't offer much of a protection as well as the rider has got to wear goggles to shield the eyes. Due to the decreased safety which they offer, a couple of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the usage of this half helmet.
