Open Face Motorcycle Helmets, Open Face Street Bike Helmets
BTO Sports offers the widest range of motocross helmets and dirt bike helmets to choose from, including open face motorcycle helmet and full face motorcycle helmet selections. As the most crucial piece of riding gear you can own, the decision of what kind of motocross or motorcycle helmet you choose is extremely important.
The two helmet designs differ in the amount of your face that they leave exposed while you ride, but beyond that, what are the differences? Open faced motorcycle helmets are usually less stifling than full-face helmets. The open face motorcycle helmet style allows plenty of room to breathe, and generally provides a greater degree of vision capability. While they do give you a wider scope of visibility when riding your motorcycle, open face helmets also leave more of your face vulnerable to injury in the event of an accident or crash. If you choose to wear an open face helmet it’s recommended that you wear motocross goggles or other protective eyewear while riding.
Even the best open face motorcycle helmet is no guarantee against injury. However, without a helmet you are five times more likely to have serious head injuries than a helmeted rider. Ensuring the proper fit of kid’s, men’s and women’s motorcycle helmets is particularly important as you don’t want your helmet to fly off when you need it the most. The fit should be tight, but not uncomfortable. It may feel too tight at first, but the inside padding will loosen with use and become more comfortable. When measuring your head for your helmet, measure from temple to temple around the head. (Check out our sizing charts for more information.)
