For those who want the benefits of an open face helmet with the coverage of a full face, there is nothing better than modular helmets. This is the main reason why so many riders have chosen to switch wearing a modular. The ability to raise the chin bar allows riders to easily eat, drink and talk at stops without needing to remove the helmet. Touring riders have become the biggest group of wearers, but a modular will work for many styles of riding. Some options can even be ridden with the chin bar in the up position (be sure yours is approved for this before trying).
Modular helmets have come a long ways since they were first introduced. Today’s options have become far more streamlined, lighter and easier to use while still providing the necessary protection. The chin bar locking mechanisms are no longer cumbersome to use and can even be lifted with a single gloved hand. The advancement in shell design and construction has also reduced the weight. Though, a modular is not as safe as a full face because of the chin bar, it is still far better than an open face.
