I think it depends on what kind of guy you are, what machine you ride and most importantly which one you feel most comfortable with! Personally, I often have the problem that very few helmets fit me, as they tend to be smaller as full-face helmets, flip-up helmets or jet helmets. Here are 3 examples with my personal assessment of the topic.

The HJC I40 JET HELMET

I wore this helmet on a 50cc scooter and found it very comfortable. While it doesn’t say anywhere that the HJC I40 JETHELM can only be worn on a scooter, I would recommend it less for speeds over 80km/h. The wind becomes unpleasant if you don’t wear a closed helmet. I liked the integrated sun visor and ventilation options. Most of the padding is removable and washable. For me it was the perfect helmet for the city and on a scooter. At 1.25kg I don’t find it too heavy either.

Customer ratings from the Internet are given an average of 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. Comfort, visibility, price and quality are highlighted.

The HJC C10

The opposite of the jet helmet is a full-face helmet, here the HJC C10 as an example. A classic, closed motorcycle helmet. The advantage over the jet helmet is clearly the better wind tolerance and also the protection against stones and insects. I would see the disadvantage in the fact that on summer days in a traffic jam “only” the visor can be folded up and in comparison there is less cooling in the face. Additionally, the field of vision and overall feel are more restricted with a full-face helmet. For anything over 50cc it’s definitely the better and safer solution.

According to customer reviews from the Internet, the helmet is often bought as a replacement helmet or by people who rarely need a helmet. Basically rated top!

The SCHUBERTH C3 LOUIS EDITION

If you want a mix of jet helmet and full-face helmet, then you should use a flip-up helmet. This gives you more freedom when you open it than with the full-face helmet and you can simply close it again at higher speeds. The entry price is usually more expensive for this. If the full-face helmet weighed 250g more than the jet helmet, the flip-up helmet weighs another 70g, i.e. 1570g more in total. Here, too, you have the same options as with the other helmets, namely ventilation, washable padding and a sun visor. Ideally conceived as a touring helmet.

The reviews of the buyers differ here. From “perfect” to “well”, everything is included. 3.5 stars out of 5.0 is the approximate average. Just try it and form your own opinion.

As I said at the beginning, you should ask yourself what exactly the requirements for the helmet are and what and where I want to ride my motorcycle or scooter. In the end it is also a question of taste and a question of wearing comfort. In any case, it should be safe!

I would like to call on everyone with product knowledge to pass this on to others via the comment function. Unfortunately, there are few reviews online, so let’s build a community and support each other.
