There are several different types of motorcycle helmet and your final choice should be made to suit your riding style. Full-face motorcycle helmets offer a high level of protection and are most suited to extreme wear and racing. Flip-up (also known as modular) helmets are a hybrid motorcycle helmet featuring all the performance benefits of a full-face helmet but with the greater visibility and convenience of an open face helmet. In addition, off-road helmets are suitable for all terrain (motocross) racing.
Choice of headwear
There is a variety of balaclavas, masks and tubes available which can be worn as a base layer underneath your motorcycle helmet. All-climate neck tubes will both insulate and provide a breathable extra layer. Balaclavas are often an indispensable part of a biker’s kit, keeping the back of the neck wind proof and the lips and chin protected from dust and debris when riding in colder weather. They also well go some way to help maintain the good condition of your helmet.
Again practical and protective, many masks are often fashion influenced and these can be purchased in graphic, plain or patterned options withanti-pollution, windproof, thermal and breathable qualities.

Essential for all-terrain racing, a large selection of high performance eyewear can be found from leading brands such as Oakley, SCOTT and Fox. In addition, helmet and visor bags will keep items safely stored away when not in use. Made from tough, water resistant materials such accessories are often fleece-lined for extra protection and have carry handles and shoulder straps for added convenience.
