The main benefit of an open-face motorcycle helmet is that it allows the riders to feel the wind on their face while providing protection to their head. These helmets are available in three basic designs: half-helmets, flip-up and three quarter. Half helmets and beanie-styles are similar, protecting only the cranium. The open-face three-quarter motorcycle helmet design offers the highest level of protection, covering the rider's cranium, ears and jawbone. It's highly recommended to supplement eye protection by wearing goggles or adding a face shield.
