Buy modular and folding helmets on Motocard
Modular helmets allow us to raise the chin guard. The main reason to get a modular motorcycle helmet is that they are more friendly on a daily basis and for travelling. You don't have to take your helmet off when you go to the shop or the gas station, nor to have a conversation. This makes them particularly convenient in the city and to run errands. They're more versatile. With the chin guard up, it's much easier than a full-face to put on and take off. It's another factor that makes them so practical. In addition, many modulars use the micrometric closure system which makes it even easier to remove and put on.
They are usually touring helmets, with a focus on comfort. The soft, fluffy padding, air inlets that are easy to operate with gloves on, many models have an integrated sun visor and some offer pre-installation for intercom.

Other types of motorcycle helmets
Modular motorcycle helmets offer more protection than jet helmets (with the chinrest down) with virtually the same advantages in terms of comfort and practicality. If you do not want to give up the feeling of freedom that a jet gives or the safety of a full-facel, the modular helmet the best option. It is difficult to find a modular helmet below 1.5 kg, while full-face helmets often weigh less. This is due to the chin opening system, the sun visor, and the intercom pre-installation etc.
A one-piece helmet, which protects the chin with a fixed chin guard and incorporates a screen. Full-facehelmets offer the greatest protection.
Jet helmets expose the face and chin and offer a lower degree of safety in the event of a fall. They are intended more for urban use. City scooter users will prefer jet helmets, for their great visibility and lightness.
