Best Modular Motorcycle Helmet – Buyers Guide

When buying a modular motorcycle helmet, make sure to consider a couple of points before you buy.

Keep Cool And Carry On

One of the worst sensations in the world is an overheated motorcycle helmet. Unable to wipe away sweat inside the helmet, you have to suffer till you can pull over, breathe, give yourself a wipe-down and carry on.

Never be caught without a high quality ventilation system in your motorcycle helmet. Be prepared to pay for that function above almost anything else, barring safety.

Can You Hear Me Now?

One of the pleasures and reassurances of 21st century motorcycle riding is that you don’t need to be disconnected for however long your journey is.

If you want to be able to safely take, make and reject calls along the way, if a GPS navigation system would help you get where you’re going, or if you need some music along your journey, pay the extra and get a helmet with bluetooth.

Equally importantly, if those things would just distract you from the road and the journey, go bluetooth-free, save yourself some money, and ride on.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why makes a modular helmet special?

More or less, it’s all about the visor – a modular motorcycle helmet is the halfway stage between full helmets and open-face helmets, in that you can press a button and talk, eat, and take some breaths in a modular helmet, without removing the helmet altogether

What should I look for in a modular motorcycle helmet?

Above and beyond everything else, DOT-certification for safety – you want it to protect your head if you have an accident. After that, whatever most appeals to you.

Shatterproof visors are a good investment. Ventilation systems help you stay more comfortable for longer. And communication options can transform your passive ride into an active, connected experience.
