Full face helmets
The safest helmet to wear on your motorcycle is a full face helmet. The integrated chin bar makes sure your entire head is protected from impacts. Full face helmets are also the most diverse category of helmets: they range from adventure helmets to (sport) touring helmets and racing helmets.
Why wear a full-face helmet?
If you’re riding on track or on the streets, a full face helmet is the way to go. If you like to race your bike on the track, it’s important to know that a full face helmet is the only helmet allowed! Not for no good reason, because a full face helmet is the safest option for a helmet. As far as for the streets; it’s usually the most quiet option for a helmet and it’s just a safe bet! A full-face helmet can be made out of different kinds of materials, which can be divided in roughly three categories: polycarbonate, fiberglass and carbon fiber. Logically when the materials go up in costs, the more expensive a helmet will be. Regarding comfort: features like an internal drop down sun visor and integrated Bluetooth communication systems are slowly becoming the standard in the touring segment.
Choosing the right full face helmet
First off, you will have to make up your mind: what kind of rider am I? Adventure helmets share the looks and functionalities of off road helmets, combined with the safety of a full face helmet. You will find a large eyeport to accomodate a set of goggles and a peak to block sunlight and deflect branches when you’re in the forest. The pointy chin bar also allows great airflow. Are you more of a sport touring or street rider? Then you will probably like a full face helmet with an integrated drop down sun visor and plenty of ventilation.
