Open Face Motorcycle Helmets
Open face motorcycle helmets are perfect for the motorbike enthusiast who likes to feel the wind and sun on their face whilst riding. Despite not providing as much protection upon impact than full face motorcycle helmets, an open one will allow you to breathe easier and keep cool during warm weather. Moreover, they have less blind spots than full face helmets. These helmets are perfect for those who prefer the classic look rather than the contemporary.
Certain open face motorcycle helmets come with sun visors. These can be pulled over the top of your face to protect your eyes from harsh sunlight. However, when it is not needed, it can be retracted to sit on top of the helmet itself. Depending on the brand, the sun visor can be scratch-resistant, this is a great feature to have to keep your helmet in top condition.
The ‘brain bucket’ style of open face motorcycle helmets is a classic look. The dome shaped outer shell provides a high-quality of protection for the top and back of your head, whilst allowing full visibility. Many of these come with unique patterns or designs and are available from dozens of different brands including BELL, Arai, AGV and Shark. Plain helmets can also be purchased. These are perfect for those who wish to customise the look of their headwear.
Most of the open face motorcycle helmets are equipped with removable interior textiles. This is a great idea to keep the inside of your helmet clean and fresh; it is especially convenient in the summer months when the inside gets sweaty.
The helmets are held securely in place against your head with quick-release chin straps. The straps will prevent it from coming loose upon impact, assuming you are wearing the correct size helmet. Before buying an open face motorcycle helmet, it is highly recommended that you ensure it is the right size for you.
