Full Face Helmet
A Flip-Up helmet is an open helmet and Full Face helmet in one. With a Flip-Up helmet, you are able to flip it open by simply using the chin guard which is attached to a hinge construction. The handy thing is that you can transform your Full Face helmet into an Open Face helmet with just one simple hand movement. Flip-Up helmets are widely used by touring riders who regularly switch between speeds and therefore would like to open their helmet. A Flip-Up helmet is also ideal for the installation of a Bluetooth headset.
Note that not every Flip-Up helmet has a so-called double homologation or P / J approval. This double homologation means that a helmet is approved for use as an Open Face helmet as a Full Face helmet. If a helmet doesn't have such approval you can't drive with an unfolded chin guard.
Half Face Helmet
As long-time favorites of lower-speed bikers and scooter riders, Open Face Helmets cover the sides, top, and back of the head while leaving facial areas completely exposed to the fresh breeze. Because there’s no structural chin section, open face helmets offer less crash protection. An adjustable strap around the chin keeps them securely fastened to your head.
Naturally, that great open-air feeling comes with a downside - exposure to road grit, bugs, water, and more. However, many open-face helmets can be purchased with removable visor pieces and air-filtering face masks.
