As important as safety equipment is when riding a motorcycle, it should not be so restrictive that it takes away from the enjoyment of the experience. A poorly designed, ill-fitting helmet, is one way to spoil your riding pleasure.
Luckily, thanks to the extensive range of KYT open face helmets available at YG Moto, you can choose the best helmet to suit your riding needs while keeping you safe in case of a crash. KYT places safety, comfort, and design above all else, and this is evident in its helmet designs.
Being involved in an accident is not something anyone would ever wish for, but unfortunately, it does happen, and with alarming regularity when motorcycles are involved. That is why it is a requirement, by law, to always have a helmet on while riding a motorcycle.
Many different types of helmets are available, and depending on the type of bike or favorite style, most riders usually have a specific preference. One of the most popular types of helmets is the open-face helmet.
While its safety features might not match other helmet types such as full-face helmets, the open face helmet does have a few benefits f its own, such as:
One major drawback that makes people hate wearing motorcycle helmets is that it can get very hot and musty inside a helmet, especially during summer. The open-face helmet allows you to feel the wind on your face and better enjoy the riding experience.
Talking can be quite difficult while wearing a helmet because apart from your voice being muffled, other people cannot see your mouth and facial expressions, which are very important aspects of communication.
When wearing an open-face helmet, it becomes easier to communicate with other drivers, which can prove to be very important in some cases. Other motorcycle riders have to remove their helmets to be understood, but that is not a problem if you are wearing an open-face helmet.
There is no denying, that in most cases, an open-face helmet looks very cool compared to the full-face option. Certain types of bikes, such as the Harley Davidson, just look so much better when the rider is wearing an open-face helmet.
Compared to the full-face helmet, an open-face helmet is much lighter and has greater freedom of movement. This feature makes it the more comfortable option, especially when it comes to taking long rides that can become very fatiguing.
The open-face helmet offers much better fields of vision in terms of both peripheral and vertical angels of sight. This is a very important safety feature when riding on the road with other motor vehicles around.
While full-face helmets undoubtedly offer much greater crash protection than open-face helmets, both still have a lot of great safety features to offer. Safety is not just about the strength of the helmet and the ability to cover the entire face. There are a lot of other features that contribute to the overall safety features.
With open-face helmets, you get better visibility thanks to the wide-open visors. The improved ventilation also means less risk of misting and better comfort. All these features add to the rider’s ability to ride safely.
