Motorcycle helmets are of five types and they are secured to the rider's head utilizing a chin strap. The objective of using them along with their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap is not secured.
Full Face Helmet: The entire face helmet covers your entire head around the skull base and is easily the most protective among all the helmets. It has a swiveling cutout band, known as a visor, made of transparent plastic across the front of 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 widely used for motocross or off-road rides usually do not sometimes have a very face shield nevertheless 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 use goggles and allow more airflow that is needed during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps sunshine's glare off of the rider's eyes during jumps.
Though off-road helmets was lacking a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets have a very chin bar to safeguard the face area from impact during crashes. By using such helmets together with goggles, the equal protection as from full face helmets can be achieved.
Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Sometimes known through the name convertible, the modular helmet is often a hybrid relating to the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is over a pivot and can be moved upwards to resemble an open face helmet. Anybody wearing the helmet may thus have the ability to drink and eat and never have to take away the chinstrap. They're favored by motor officers who will be on the go.
Modular helmets are generally kept closed while riding and also the chin bar is kept up not until not riding the motorcycle. In the event the helmet is kept in the open position while riding, the risk of neck injury is greatly increased in case of a crash. However, those modular helmets which can be dual certified as full face and open face helmets give a great a higher level protection even though utilized in the open mode.
Open Face Helmet: The face helmets cover the rear of the head, the ears and also the cheeks but do not possess the chin bar which a full face helmet possesses. Some of them have provisions for visors to become snapped on. The protection to the face is minimal when using these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by goggles or snapping over a face shield protects the face area from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Helmet: Famous throughout the 1960s as well as called the pudding basin helmet in the UK, one half helmet or &lsquoshorty' was preferred among road racers. The design is actually much like an open face helmet without the lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet doesn't offer a great deal of protection and also the rider must wear goggles to safeguard the eyes. Because of the decreased safety which they offer, a couple of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned the use of this half helmet.
