Half helmets represent a legend, especially for the ones that have lived their motorcycle years through the 60s or 70s or appreciate that period. In terms of protection, half helmets don't offer too much, barely satisfying the minimum protection requirements imposed by the authorities from the United States. The fact that half helmets do not offer any kind of protection to the neck and chin represents quite an important disadvantage to them in the eyes of the motorcycle owners interested mainly in safety. However, the feeling of riding a classic Harley Davidson while equipped with a half helmet cannot be described in words and we strongly encourage you to try it at least once in order to see what we mean. Maybe half helmets don't offer the best level of protection, but if you are into retro motorcycles and like to be unique, they represent the right choice for you.
