What Kinds Of Motorcycle Helmets Are There?

Helmets include ventilation slots at the front, sides, and top to allow fresh air to flow throughout the helmet for better breathing and less fogging. Below are the some type of helmets you could use on daily basis.


Modular Helmets

Modular HJC Helmets come in a variety of shapes, ranging from circular (suitable for slower speeds and more upright riding techniques) to slightly elongated (more aerodynamic for faster riding).

It's worth noting that modular helmets lack the strength and crash integrity of full-face (one-piece) helmets. While the lower chin portions are strengthened for strength, they are independent of the rest of the helmet and will react differently in an accident.

Modular helmets often weigh more than full-face helmets due to the strength reinforcements present in the chin and other sections of the helmet, as well as the various components utilized in the heavy-duty pivot hinges.


Helmets With An Open Face

Open face helmets provide less crash protection since there is no structural chin piece. 

Many open face helmets, on the other hand, are available with detachable visors and air-filtering face masks.


Helmets For Dirt Bikes

Because dirt bike riding demands more physical activity, dirt bike helmets are lightweight and engineered for optimal ventilation, allowing the rider to breathe easily – especially during the warmer months of off-roading. Dirt bike helmets have less insulation inside, which adds to the requirement to remain cool. The one-piece structure provides exceptional protection around the chin.

Riders often wear separate goggles inside the helmet for eye protection because dirt bike helmets aren't designed for high speeds and lack a windshield. This is a benefit since goggles are much easier to remove and clean when everything is covered with mud.

Off-road helmets include huge, adjustable "sun peak" attachments that serve many purposes. For starters, they keep the sun glare out of your eyes, which is very important while going up and down slopes at severe angles while off-roading.

Second, if you're riding behind another rider or riders on a gravel path, sun peaks efficiently hide a lot of the grit and mud spat up by their back wheels. Because of its aesthetic form, this arc of mud flying into the air behind a dirt bike is known as a "rooster tail." As a result, being "roosted" by another rider is unpleasant, and it may be fairly severe when pebbles are thrown.

You'll hear the most noise inside a dirt bike helmet due to its smaller weight and weaker insulation. This is useful at lower speeds over uneven terrain, where such noises are required to discern whether tires are slipping, skidding, or keeping contact.


Helmet With A Half Shell

The skull helmet, sometimes known as a motorcycle helmet, provides the bare minimum of riding safety. It simply protects the top of the head to the ears, leaving the face, jaws, and neck exposed. Half-face helmets, on the other hand, are significantly less expensive and readily comply with the requirements, making them a viable alternative. Wearing a half-shell helmet is ideally equivalent to wearing none at all and should be confined to those riding a scooter; rather, they should not be worn by them as well.
