Executive summary about off road motorcycle helmets by Aurora LaJambre
Helmets are essential for off-road motorcyclists. Different models of off-road motorcycle helmets offer varying levels of protection and comfort.
Off-road helmets are protective head gear. Today’s off-road helmets have elements of both open-faced and full-face helmets.
1. Open face helmets
Open face helmets offer full coverage to the base of the skull, but there is no chinbar. While this style was prevalent in the original off-road helmets, most helmets today include chinbars. Similar to road helmets, motorcyclists with open face helmets wear goggles to protect their eyes from debris.
2. Full face helmets
Full face helmets cover the entire head from the base of the skull to the face and chin.
3. Full helmets without a face shield
The alternative to a face shield is an off-road helmet with a chinbar and open cutout for goggles.
