Full face helmet or sportbike
The full face helmet, also called the "sportbike" helmet, is the one that certainly offers the best coverage, protection and structural integrity. Fortunately, the idea of full face helmets for a multitude of driving styles is something that is gaining ground in the industry, and for good reasons. In general, the closed design of full face motorcycle helmets offers some noticeable improvements over their counterparts. As already mentioned before, the integral design allows these helmets to be more protective. Compared to bowl helmets, jet helmets or even modular helmets, the full face helmet is on top of the podium in this regard. With a complete one-piece cover, the outer shell of the helmet is more inclined than a modular one in order to maintain its structural integrity in case of accident. Full face helmets have also other advantages. These helmets tend to be quieter because their design allows for less areas of wind turbulence and their focus on aerodynamics provides a more uniform path to the air around them. Many of these helmets will also provide a wider range of upgrades and interchangeable parts. These are just some of the best features of full face helmets: replacement interiors, alternating face screens, internal drop-down sun visors and improved compatibility of the Bluetooth communicator. However, there are some complaints about full face helmets which concern the fact that they are too tight and so people feel constricted, especially with the equipment on their cheeks. When dimensioning a full face helmet, it’s essential to keep in mind that the pillows will break up to 20% after prolonged use. Other reasons why people don't feel able to wear full face helmets can include poor adaptation to their head shape, perception of lack of visibility, or even just the fact that individual pilots prefer to feel the wind in their face. While the first two reasons can easily be solved by finding a helmet that has a more ergonomic interior, the latter argument is strictly preferential and totally legitimate. Sometimes it's nice to feel the wind in your face, but if you're planning to take your motorbike on a track, you’ll need to wear for sure a full face helmet.
