Open Face Motorcycle Vehicle Helmets
Open face motorcycle vehicle helmets are helmets that protect the top, sides and back of the head but not the front, leaving an opening where the face is positioned. They are ideal for shorter rides in the summer when the sun’s out and are the perfect complement to a classic racing look. Style them with a pair of used retro riding goggles.
Open face vehicle helmets come in many varieties. You will find some with and without chin support, gloss or matte finishes, and made from thermo-resin, fibreglass, carbon-fibre or a mix of materials.
Choose from a range of well-known motorcycle helmet brands including BELL, Caberg, Schuberth, Nexx, Nolan, A-Pro and Arai. There are thousands of styles available in classic black, however, if you are feeling more daring why not try silver, red, yellow, green, gold, orange or pink?
All styles are unisex, which means they can be worn by men and women and are sized from XS to XXL, depending on the style. It is worth checking the individual listings to find out the exact measurements, and contacting the seller if they aren’t already provided.
While open face helmets may not offer the complete protection provided by a full face motorcycle helmet, they are practical for covering short distances in urban areas such as towns and cities.
If you are shopping for a helmet to wear when driving on British roads you will need to choose one that complies with the latest safety regulations. Look out for the British Standard BS 6658:1985 with the BSI Kitemark, UNECE Regulation 22.05 or a European Economic Area standard that is the equivalent of these.
Remember, whenever you are riding a motorcycle, moped or quad bike on the road you are required by law to wear a safety helmet.
