1. Full Face Motorcycle Helmets
They are the most common in the market as they offer protection while considering aerodynamics, visibility, and weight. We love these helmets as they make riders feel more confident behind the wheel.
The helmets offer all round safety as they are entirely designed to fully cover the head, face, and jaw only leaving the eye port open. The only thing you may not like especially if you are used to lightweight helmets is that they are a bit heavy. Other features you can enjoy with this helmet include:
- Weather protection: they are sealed properly offering ample protection from the sun and rain.
- Quiet ride: the helmets permit you to tune out the sounds of the road making the ride more quieter.
- Clear visor: full face helmets come with clear visor offering the best visibility.
- Wind resistance: thanks to the sleek round shape, the helmets are also excellent for protecting the neck from muscle strain.
While choosing a full face helmet, there are a couple of features you need to look out for such as retention system, helmet padding, hard outer shell, ventilation, and fit to ensure you have the best helmet.

5. Off-Road /Motocross Helmets
Pronounced angular chin bars and sun peaks distinguish the off-road helmets from the other types available. These are helmets designed to maximize ventilation and minimize weight as they are mostly used in warm weather.
Since they do not have inbuilt face shield, they are supposed to be work with goggles. They are perfect for short races and some of the features you can enjoy include:
- Chin protection: the elongated design helps to protect users from dirt and debris on the road.
- Sun visor: the helmets come with an extended sun visor offering protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
- Special vents: the helmet’s design comes with special vents that boost ventilation. The system allows heat to escape regulating humidity and temperature levels in the helmet.
- No face shield: typically the helmets do not come with a face shield. It is because the shield is hard to keep from fogging up.
When shopping for the off-road helmets, it is paramount that you get one that is Snell/DOR certified, has more EPS to absorb impact, is comfortable on your head and offers optimum ventilation.
