5 Best Open-Face Helmets [2019 Update]

What do you do when you’re not a full-face, modular, or half helmet fan? You go for the good old three-quarter open face helmet. This type of motorcycle helmet provides good protection to your head while still allowing you to feel the breeze on your face as you ride.

Many of the modern options come with some type of face shield and you can add a removable face shield to any of the classically styled helmets should you wish. It’s a design that offers you a lot of nice features and amenities without having to fully cover your face.

Because the design has been around basically since the crash helmet was invented, there’s a lot of different options. Many are good helmets, but to present you with the absolute best around, we thought it best to do a short list. Here are the best open-face helmets on sale today.

5. Sena Savage Bluetooth

Sena Savage Bluetooth

Bluetooth communication devices and open face helmets with classic style don’t usually go together. The added communication device just doesn’t look right, but Sena has figured out how to integrate its Bluetooth system correctly in a classic helmet that weighs just a little over two pounds.

The helmet comes with a few more features than most other helmets due to the integrated Bluetooth system. It gets built-in speakers, advanced noise control, voice prompt technology, and four-way communication. The helmet also comes with a removable quick-dry liner, chin strap with a D-ring retentions system, and a couple of visors if you want them.

The fiberglass composite shell comes in two different sizes, and the helmet also gets multi-density EPS. Those two things together help keep this helmet that’s focused on communication technology safe.
