What should I pay attention to when buying a flip-up helmet?
When choosing a flip-up helmet, you can pay attention to several things. What the helmet is made of plays the most important role in safety. You have polycarbonate which is more favorable in terms of price and glass fiber which performs better in terms of safety. In addition, you must take into account that each modular helmet has its own fit that will fit you well or less well. To find out what your fit is, it is best to try on different flip-up helmets to compare. Today, a communication system fits in practically every flip-up helmet. Some luxury helmets are Bluetooth ready, so that a specific communication system can be integrated.
What is the advantage of a flip-up helmet?
System helmets were originally made for the police. The wish that underlies the flip-up helmet is the ability to communicate quickly and easily. By 'folding up' the chin, the face is released, so that one has direct eye contact and one can understand each other better. It is also possible to drive 'open' at lower speeds.
The possibilities with flip-up helmets
Because these helmets are often used by tour drivers, instructors and government agencies, they are generally very luxurious and come with all kinds of options. For example, extra space has been left free at the ears for the installation of communication sets and there is an integrated sun visor. Partly due to the space at the ears, this type of helmet is ideal for glasses wearing motorcyclists. Because these motorcycle helmets are often used by motorcyclists who also drive through the winter, they are often equipped with a Pinlock system, this inner visor prevents the visor from fogging up.
