Half helmets are exactly what the name suggests, dot helmets that cover half the head. There’s no doubt that a full-face helmet can provide the best protection, however, the half helmet also offers a ton of benefits that new riding enthusiasts aren’t aware of. There are pros and cons to every type of helmet.
More About Dot Helmets
While most riders swear by full-face helmets, there’s something to be said about a helmet that provides protection, while also allowing you to breathe fresh air and really enjoy your ride as you’re flying down the highway in divine leather. Since the half helmet doesn’t fully cover the head, it feels less constraining, compared to full-face style dot helmets. This DOT-approved matte black half dot helmet is sleek and modern-looking.
It features an integrated smoked sun shield that is easy to use and provides added vision protection. The composite shell is made of lightweight polycarbonate. CAD technology enhances its fit, and it comes with a nylon strap D-ring retention system.
The dot helmets feature plush and moisture-wicking Nylex padding and include a removable and washable anti-bacterial liner. The helmet fits nicely secure and snug. The flip-down shield reduces wind noise and resistance and doesn’t interfere with glasses.
The fact that these helmets expose the rider’s face to the elements can be a good thing, in the right weather conditions, keeping the rider cool and allowing them to fully experience the ride.
Movies and TV shows have made the half helmet more popular than ever before. But with this new rise in popularity, the market is now flooded with dozens of half helmets, available in a variety of colors and styles.
