Flip Front Helmets

Not everybody loves flip-up helmets; some people associate such helmets with the police and a certain kind of BMW rider, but frankly these people need to get over themselves. We at Motolegends are big flip-up helmet fans, and we think they represent the best of all worlds. First, a flip-lid helmet is quieter than a full-face helmet, as the neck-roll can fit closer to the neck, and this is because a flip-lid can be slid into place from the back of the head, rather than having to pass over the widest part of the skull! The Schuberth C3 Pro is still the quietest helmet on the market even five years after it was first released. When a modern flip-up crash helmet is closed, it is pretty much indistinguishable from a full-face helmet, but when you’re in town, the front can be lifted to create a much better airflow. It’s also useful if you want to ask somebody for directions. It is also vastly preferred by the medical services in the event of an accident as they can access airways and the face without having to take your helmet off. So we can't really see the downside of a flip-lid.

For us the leading flip-front helmet is probably the  brand new Shoei Neotec 3 helmet. We can change cheek pads and liners for the best fit. New out in 2022 is the Schuberth C5 which is set to compete as the best in the field.
