Motorcycle Helmets - U Never Run Out Of Decisions

Jun 29, 2008
There are advantages and disadvantages in the many types of motorcycle helmets offered on the market these days. These are design for safety while try to feel comfy on your head. Examine which feature if not both are for you in a motorcycle helmet. Lets go over what some of the helmets have to offer.

A full- face helmet is probably the most used kind of helmet. The helmet of this kind engulfs not only the head but offers protection to the face. As far as motorcycle mishaps go 1/3 of all mishaps have resulted to injury to the face. Considering this fact anything that helps keep the face from being injured is most welcomed. These helmets protect you well cut are not necessarily built for comfort. They have been accused of causing the neck to be hurt. These claims are however unsubstantiated.

A helmet called a half helmet is available bit is the least safe of the helmets okayed in the USA. A bit like the open face helmet design the half helmet is round and protects more the top of the head. Offers poor protection to the lower head area and neck. Virtually no facial protection at all which is not very safe conscious. The other negative to this helmet is that it moves on the head due to its shape.

As with the full-face motorcycle helmets the open face helmets truly do protect the head but unlike the full-face ones the open face ones do not protect the face and chin. The rider who may prefer to have this wider range of vision will find this helmet fits the bill but they do sacrifices greatly on safety for their face. Some models do have the mounts for an individual to add a visor. Motorcyclists do seem to enjoy using this particular style of helmet.

A helmet that goes over the not only the chin but over the entire face and head is the flip up helmet. The flip up helmets is as safe to use on a regular basis as the full-face helmet. The unique thing about this helmet is that you can flip up the face and chin guard when you need to access your face. This means if the rider wants to eat in a hurry without lifting his whole helmet off he can so this helmet does add convenience.

Motocross is a blast to do but does take some special protection for the rider. The motocross helmet provides just such protection. With a specially designed chin and visor area that takes a bashing that happens in a fall in motocross so that the face does not have to take a bashing. Also certain models of these helmets permit the use of goggles by the rider.

One of the motorcycle helmets that are not approved for safety because it does not qualify is the beanie helmet. But they look close enough to the legal helmets to fool some. These helmets are worn by riders who do not like the heaviness of the true safety helmets but don't want to get a ticket by not having a helmet is not advised. Research and try on helmets to find which of the many motorcycle helmets you feel comfortable in while being protected.

Unless you just have a hard time making up your mind there are enough different types of motorcycle helmets on the market today to accommodate you. One tip to use in deciding is to consider how daring you get with your motorcycle travels to help with how high a functionality you need in your helmet. The main idea to get into your head about helmets is that you need to wear them every time you ride to safeguard yourself against injury. Umber one on your list should always be safety.
