Sometimes, it's better to shop for your new motorcycle helmet by type. You might not be fixated on a particular brand or colour - but you might know that you want a flip-front, open face, full face or enduro type helmet. Read More…
Each different type of helmet has its benefits. Take a flip front helmet: they're especially ideal for people who wear glasses, as they usually allow easy insertion of glasses once the chin bar is up. They're also great for touring and commuting. Some flip front helmets are dual homologated (both P and J rated), meaning that you can legally ride with the chin bar in the up position. This obviously has great benefits for touring riders in changeable climates.
Open face helmets come with a particular 'image'. Suited to scooter and small engine riders, these types of helmet are often vintage-looking, although some are styled to be particularly modern looking.
Full face helmets are your typical motorcycle helmet, and they're the only type which are approved for use on track. Full face helmets come in a variety of shapes and styles, colours and qualities. You really do have the pick of the bunch.
