As the popularity of motorcycles grew in the second half of the twentieth century, and so too did safety standards. Introduced in an official motorcycle race for the first time in 1967, the full-face motorcycle helmet—otherwise known as a sports helmet—brought a new level of protection to riders by not only fully covering the back of the head but also adding a chin bar and face shield for maximum coverage. Today, the design’s protective abilities make it a popular choice among many riders whose habits stretch well beyond the racing scene.
In the meantime, the construction of the full-face helmet has greatly evolved in a number of respects. Riders choosing from available full-face options will find headgear made with state-of-the-art materials like carbon fiber, which offers incredible durability despite its lightweight comfort.
Adding to that comfort, the best full-face helmets now feature sophisticated ventilation, no-fog face shields, and more. Plus, even though some choose these for the smooth, quiet ride afforded by these helmets’ aerodynamic designs, they can also be outfitted with hi-def, Bluetooth® audio for added entertainment—or communicating with ease.
