With the summertime weather in full effect, now is the perfect time to invest in an open-face helmet. Perfect for cruising around with the wind in your face, we've compiled five of our favourites from the MCN Shop.
It's important to note though that while an open-face helmet gives you a wider view of the world around you, there is an obvious compromise on protection from the elements and in the event of a spill.
AGV Legends X70 - £149.99-£289.99
One half of a new two-model retro 'AGV Legends' collection, the authentic 1960s and '70s styling of the AGV X70 helps it stand out from the crowd. The hard wearing external fibreglass shell comes in a range of designs and there is a Double-D ring retention.
Bell Custom 500 - £149.99
When it comes to jet lids, Bell are among the pioneers. This lid is based on the firm’s original fibreglass helmet from 1954, which was named the 500. Here in the present day the shell is made from a composite of fibres and there’s a suede lining and a multi-density EPS liner.
Arai Freeway Classic - £269.99-£349.99
Available in a wide range of colours and with an optional removable peak, the Freeway Classic is another great choice. Alongside a washable liner, there is a five-year Arai warranty and a goggle strap band. A Double-D retention keeps your head in place.
HJC FG-70S Aries - £139.99
Turn up the heat with this HJC FG-70S Aries open-face helmet. With a fibreglass construction and drop-down sun visor, there's a dual density EPS liner and a removable and washable interior.
Momo Minimomo - £159.99
Moving away from the retro scene we have the Minimomo, which comes with a drop-down internal sun visor. Slightly more expensive than the HJC, the Momo's inner fabric is anti-bacterial and there is a quick release chin strap.
