Types of Helmets
As per the above discussion we come to point where you can differentiate the features of different helmets on the basis of technological and safety advances, there are a lot of options to choose from size, color and design.
Full Face Helmet
This kind of helmet is designed to protect not just your head but your jaw and face as well. It covers the top, back and front of your head and is set apart from similar helmets by its chin bar.
Open Face or ¾ Helmet
Open face helmets are interestingly very similar to full face helmets except they don’t have chin bar and mostly no face shield either. An open face helmet will allow you to feel more wind on your face but it also opens up the possibility of higher risk of injury in a crash or road accident.
It’s one of the popular helmets. They are able to transform from a full face helmet into an open face helmet. The chin bar flips up or can be removed entirely that will offer the feel of both types of helmet.
This is the most common helmet among the scooter drivers or can say middle class family of India. These half helmets are designed to offer the minimal protection to an individual. Lacking the safety features they show extreme lightweight characteristics.
Off Road or Motocross Helmet
It is the most unique among all the clan of helmets. These are off road helmets equipped with specific features meant for riders who race motocross. They have sun visor and an elongated, angular chin bar.
Dual-sport helmets are a hybrid of an off road and full face helmet involving a sun visor and great ventilation feature. They provide more warmth and sound proofing than an off road helmet. If you’re a professional and passionate rider looking for a helmet to take on and off the road, then dual-sport is a perfect choice.
