Motorcycle helmets are of 5 types and they are secured on the rider's head employing a chin strap. The goal of wearing them along with their protective benefits are defeated if chin strap isn't secured.
Full Face Helmet: The entire face helmet covers your entire head as much as the skull base and is among the most protective of all the helmets. It has a swiveling cutout band, called a visor, made of transparent plastic throughout the front with the eyes and nose. Some helmets have vents for increased airflow. The disadvantages are decreased hearing, intense heat, and insufficient wind. Full-face helmets which can be frequently used for motocross or off-road rides usually do not sometimes have a very face shield nevertheless 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 absence of a face shield permits the rider to wear goggles and permit more airflow that is needed during strenuous off-road rides. The visor protects the rider's eyes from flying debris and keeps sunlight's glare over rider's eyes during jumps.
Though off-road helmets didn't have a chin bar earlier on, modern off-road helmets have a very chin bar to guard the face from impact during crashes. By wearing such helmets in addition to goggles, the equivalent amount of protection as from full face helmets may be accomplished.
Modular/Flip-Up Helmets: Best known from the name convertible, the modular helmet is a hybrid involving the full face and open face street helmet. The chin bar is with a pivot and can be moved upwards to resemble an empty face helmet. Anyone wearing the helmet may thus have the ability to ingest and never have to eliminate the chinstrap. They are favored by motor officers who will be moving around.
Modular helmets are often kept closed while riding along with the chin bar is maintained only once not riding the motorcycle. If your helmet is kept in view position while riding, the chance of neck injury is greatly increased in the eventuality of a collision. However, those modular helmets which can be dual certified as full face and open face helmets offer a great a higher level protection regardless if used in the open mode.
Open Face Helmet: The face helmets cover a corner with the head, the ears along with the cheeks such as the have the chin bar that the full face helmet possesses. A lot of them have provisions for visors to get snapped on. The security on the face is minimal when you use these helmets.
Supplementing facial protection by goggles or snapping with a face shield protects the face from flying debris, strong wind and insects.
Half Helmet: Famous through the 1960s plus referred to as pudding basin helmet in england, a half helmet or &lsquoshorty' was well-liked by road racers. The design is almost comparable to an empty face helmet minus the lowered rear. The bowl shaped helmet does not offer a protection along with the rider has to wear goggles to guard the eyes. Due to decreased safety which they offer, a number of Motorcycle Safety Foundations have banned using this half helmet.
