Types of motorcycle helmets
This is the one that most quickly comes to mind when talking about motorcycle helmets. It is the most common and, as you can see, it is a one-piece helmet, which protects the chin with a fixed chin guard and incorporates a screen that offers a high degree of soundproofing. The full-face helmet offers the greatest degree of protection. This type also includes the integral Adventure helmet, for mixed use on and off-road. For example, the screen can be removed and it has a visor. It can also be used with cross goggles.
These helmets allow us to open the chin guard. To circulate with the chin guard open they must have P/J certification or double approval. These helmets offer a more open field of vision and are often used by urban and touring users. A hinged helmet is ideal for the most travellers: they are comfortable and have intercom installed.
These helmets intended more for urban use, they leave the face and chin exposed and offer a lower degree of safety in the event of a fall. City scooter users will prefer jet helmets for their great visibility and lightness.
Aggressive style helmets with specially designed chinrest and mud visor. They must have a high ventilation capacity and their interior must be removable.
Very lightweight helmets that leave the face and chin exposed. These helmets offer excellent ventilation and visibility. Some have a folding sun visor. Thanks to their design, some models can also be used in the city as jet helmets.

Questions about helmets
How do you know the size of a motorcycle helmet?
Knowing how to choose the size of your motorcycle helmet is essential for your comfort and, above all, for your safety. Before purchasing, it is essential that you consult the manufacturer's size guide. The sizes of each helmet are shown in cm, so you need to measure your heads with a tailor's tape measure. If your measures are between two sizes, it is always advisable to opt for the smaller size. Find your size.
How long can a motorcycle helmet last?
Motorcycle helmets do not have an exact expiry date. At Motocard we recommend changing the helmet 5 YEARS after you buy it new. A helmet made of thermoplastic resin can last up to five years; if it is made of fibre, it may last up to seven years, but not much longer. The impact-resistant materials such as the fibre and thermoplastic resin shell, inner EPS, foams, etc. gradually lose these properties over time. They degrade and lose the ability to withstand impact and dissipate the energy received. How long helmet's last.
How long can a motorcycle helmet last?

Which are the approved helmets?
All our helmets are homologated under ECE 22.05 or ECE 22.06 and P/J for modular helmets (also known as dual homologation), allowing you to ride with them in closed or jet mode.
