Motorcycle Helmets: Modular or Full Face? I just got my motorcycle license, and I'm looking for a helmet (and other gear). I wear glasses most of the time, and I've been told that a modular/flip-up helmet would make putting on and taking off the helmet easier. I used a full face helmet when I took the RiderCourse, and I didn't have much issue with it. I'm looking for opinions from people who have (preferably) used both kinds. I'm looking for good protection for a tight budget, but also something that looks good. If you have a favorite brand or specific helmet, I'd appreciate that feedback too.
I used a flip up helmet for many years and had no problems with it. As I wear glasses it meant I could put on the helmet without having to remove my glasses. Earlie this year, it was time to retire the helmet (it was eight years old) and I decided to get a regular full face helmet. Now I must remove my glasses when putting the helmet on or off. Personally I don't find this a problem. What I have noticed is that the flip up helmet came further down on my head and it had an under chin/jaw part that rotated down and under the chin when the helmet was closed. The regular full face stops at approximately my jaw line and leaves the underside of my jaw and more of my neck exposed. So far in the summer this has not been a problem but with winter getting closer I think that I will notice the difference.
