Which helmet is best for you? 1/2 3/4 or full-face modular Harley-Davidson helmet.

When it comes to choosing a Harley-Davidson helmet, you have a few options: half helmets, 3/4 helmet, or full-face modular helmet.

So which one is the best choice for you?

First, let's consider the half helmet. This is the smallest and lightest option, and it provides the least amount of coverage. It covers the top of your head and your temples, but it leaves your face, chin, and neck exposed. Half helmets riders often opt for sunglasses or goggles to protect their eyes and face.

One advantage of the half helmet is that it allows for a greater range of motion and a more open feel while riding. It's also a good choice for those who prefer a more classic, vintage look. However, it offers the least amount of protection in the event of an accident.

Next, we have the 3/4 helmet. This option covers the top and back of your head, as well as your temples and ears. It also has a visor to protect your eyes from the sun and wind. The 3/4 helmet provides more coverage than the half helmet, but it still leaves the lower half of your face exposed.

One advantage of the 3/4 helmet is that it's a good compromise between the half helmet and full face helmet. It provides more protection than the half helmet, but it still allows for a more open feel than the full face helmet. However, it may not offer as much protection in the event of an accident as a full face helmet.

Finally, we have the full face modular helmet. This is the most protective option, as it covers your entire head and face. It has a flip-up visor that allows you to easily switch between an open and closed position.

The full face modular helmet is a good choice for those who prioritize safety above all else. It offers the most protection in the event of an accident and can also be more comfortable on long rides. However, it can be heavier and may feel more restrictive than the half or 3/4 helmet options.

Ultimately, the best choice for you will depend on your personal preferences and priorities. If you prioritize safety above all else, the full face modular helmet is probably the best choice. However, if you prefer a more open feel or a vintage look, the half or 3/4 helmet might be a better fit.

Ultimately, the most important thing is to wear a helmet whenever you ride to help protect yourself in the event of an accident.  We would recommend you stop in and try on some different helmets.  We have all types in stock at Wilkins Harley-Davidson Apparel and Licensing Department.  We have about 80-100 helmets in stock at Wilkins Harley-Davidson.
