Open face helmets or ¾ helmets are accessories that cover your entire head. When you purchase one from Motorcycle Helmets, it’ll fully protect your head against sudden, unavoidable impacts.
Our open face helmets are considered two-wheeler accessories. They don’t exactly offer chin protection like full face helmets. And because the chin guard is absent, more air can be felt on your face when you drive.
This can be an extremely helpful feature during hot and humid weather.
Helmet to Beat the Heat While Keeping the Comfort
Open face helmets here at Motorcycle Helmets are undeniably the best alternatives to use during the year’s hottest months. These types also appear to be extremely popular among young riders and those who want to make a fashion statement.
Integral helmets may be the safest option today, yet in reality, open face helmets are more practical and comfortable. Not only that, but they’re highly practical for short driving trips, especially when the heat is high.
If you want adequate air and breathing space while you ride, then your best bet is our open face helmet.
Design of an Open Face Helmet
When it comes to the design of our open face helmets, it’s structurally similar to that of a full face helmet. This is in terms of safety as well as proper coverage.
When it comes to its weight, our open face helmets are a bit lighter compared to the full face helmets. It’s because of the absence of the chin bar, but do note that the reduced weight isn’t that significant.
Not only that, but because of the helmet’s opening, it doesn’t protect you against road debris and different weather conditions. Our open face helmets often sport full face or partial visors to conceal your eyes from the sunlight. However, some helmets need you to purchase that part separately.
The Modern Open Face Helmets and Retro Open Face Helmets
Today, we can categorize open face helmets that are available. These are the retro open face helmets and the modern open face helmets. The primary differences between these two types are often their visors and the overall design.
The modern open face helmets feature longer visors. They often go down and reach your chin.
For the retro open face helmets, they don’t feature any visors. If there are visors on them, they’re usually a small piece placed in front of your eyes.
Advantages of Open Face Helmets
