For many riders a flipfront helmet offers the best of both worlds – full-face protection, open-face convenience. Many also come with internal sun visors, which are incredibly handy at this time of year. Here are five picks from the MCN Shop.
Schuberth C3 Basic £249.99
Schuberth's C3 helmet is one of the quietest on the market and the helmet of choice for many long distance riders. It's incredibly compact for a flip front helmet and comes with an internal flip down sun visor.
Caberg Duke £189.99
Produced in Italy, the Duke comes with a dual visor system and a Pinlock anti-mist insert as standard. There is internal air circulation and the helmet has been developed in a wind tunnel. There is also chin ventilation and adjustable top ventilation.
HJC IS-Max 2 - from £159.99
This helmet comes with a glasses grove and front and rear air vents. Produced using a composite polycarbonate shell and polycarbonate chinbar, there is also a Pinlock-ready visor (the insert is another £27.99) and a fully removable and washable interior.
AGV Compact ST £172.49
The Compact ST is constructed from thermoplastic and features fully removable and washable liners. The sporty silhouette of the helmet means it has a good aerodynamic performance, if that's a selling point for you. Internal sun visor will always be useful.
Shark Openline - £139.99
The Shark comes with a side-operated internal sun visor and the chinbar can be opened with one hand. The streamlined helmet has a fully removable and washable lining and there is also a quick-release chin strap.
