For many motorcyclists, invention of the flip-up modular motorcycle helmet has been the greatest thing since sliced bread. Sport-touring motorcyclists have emerged as the biggest advocates of these innovative modular helmets. True to its name, a rider can simply flip up the face of his flipup helmet without the hassle of having to take it off. This makes a modular helmet especially handy when you’ve got your communication gear on and just need to check a map or to take a quick snack break at a scenic pull-out.
Modular helmets are also gaining popularity among police departments across the country. Flipup helmets offer improved convenience and efficiency to motorcycle-mounted officers. Currently, most leading brands offer flip-ups, including Bell, HJC, Shoei, Gmax, Z1R and more. As companies continue to gain experience with this new design, the latest modular helmets are becoming increasingly more comfortable and efficient than the early models.
