Advantages of Modular Helmets

Flip-up visors

When up for long rides, riders need to stop and take in some fresh air during stops. But some may find it a hassle as other helmets may need to be removed entirely for riders to rest and breathe.

But wearing modular helmets allows riders to take in air without the inconvenience of removing the helmet itself. Whenever riders need to take a break from a long ride, flipping the hinged visor would come handy for a breath of fresh air.

Flip-up Chin Bars

Inevitable conversations for riders might take place during stops and it is hard to talk and to be heard with a helmet on. In order to do so, one may need to fully remove the helmet to engage in a conversation.

But thanks to modular helmets as they come up with flip-up chin bars where riders can talk and chat without the inconvenience of removing the entire helmet.

Modular Helmets

While most prefer to go out when it’s dry outside, there are days when the sudden downpour is inevitable. During these times, moisture may accumulate in the helmet’s glass that might cloud the rider’s vision.

One great thing about modular helmets is that they are also great to use during rainy days as it protects the rider’s head, including the eyes and the face, keeping them dry. Therefore, these helmets are best to wear not only in the dry season but also during wet and rainy seasons.
