The chin takes a lot of impact when you crash. I like having a chin.

edit: ^ beat me to it! With pictures and everything lol

Full face, they make matte black to mach your ride as well. There's a high percentage of initial impact being on the chin with dismounts and the helmet striking the ground. Study done awhile back.

Full face, always. Shouldn't matter, I know the 'style' for cruisers is half helmet (or no helmet) but you need the full coverage man.

Below is my helmet after getting rear ended, I'm glad my chin is intact.

Wear a jacket and gloves, I had just gotten my jacket and gloves like 3 days before this happened. I had been riding in a helmet and T-shirt because I was too excited to ride....

Holy hell guy (or girl)! Wicked glad your alright though, I was in a lot of debate over the helmet I was going to get, and I know half is the "cruiser way" but I just feel like they look so dorky. The ones that aren't DOT are cool but what's the point of having it then? I think I look plenty cool with my jaw and skin tissue so I would rather be protected with a full face. That is my personal opinion. Besides they make plenty of helmets that look great on cruisers!

There's always modular helmets if you want to eat, drink, smoke, pick your nose, or stroke your beard while riding..but those things weigh considerably more than regular full-face.

But yes...if you have a beard, do not get a silver helmet. Don't be part of the statistic mannnnnn

If you want the 'cool' appeal and something a little bit 'different' on your cruiser, try one of these [looks amazing in matte black]:

CBeau, The Guys' posts above are what is cool. I love the fact that they aren't concerned about looking cool, but they are concerned about being safe and living through a wreck. I nearly died after a wreck with a open face helmet 30 years ago. Broke my nose so bad the bone was pretty much mush. Tore a big long hole under my nose and exposed the roots of my upper teeth. If I would have had a good full face on I would have probably went home after the wreck instead of a long stay in the hospital. Man that full face you picked is very COOL, pretty Cool friends here on this site, and they are real smart too. ride safe , Lew

Good choice. I have a friend that that took his helmet off to have a quick cruise in NH where there are no helmet laws. Hit some sand and banged his head off a guard rail. He lived but didn't recognize me the next time he saw me. I was wearing a fake helmet at the time of his accident while I rode. Bought a full face a week later and then went down two month later. If I hadn't been wearing a full face my face would have looked like the side of my helmet. I now live in NH and don't have to wear a helmet but I do every time I go out.
Your helmet looks great in that matt black. What brand is it? My modular just broke last week and I'm in the market for a new helmet.

I wear full face on the highway and my half helmet on back roads. Mainly full face on the highway because of wind noise and wind burn.

Good choice getting the full face helmet. Don't give in to the pirate poser crowd and think for yourself. Everyone who has been in a crash before, including myself, knows the value of protective riding gear.

Dig the helmet, you'll definitely stand out from the cruiser crowd with a full face. Don't let some Harley pirate talk you into one of those brain buckets.

Actually extremely surprised by the amount of full faces cruiser riders there are. I knew the number of full facers was rising but I didn't think my start to a "debate" would lead to 100% full face.

Full-face 100%. I cannot tell you how many times I've gotten hit in the head/face at freeway speeds. When that happens I just thank god that I'm wearing a full face.

Items that hit my helmet include beetles, various sizes of rocks, some almost as large as the diameter of a half dollar, 6-8 inch long 2x4, 4-6 inch 4x4, exploding tires, etc etc.

Its great that you're thinking about it and you got a full face helmet. Now its time to think about your jacket, your gloves, and of equally importantance: motorcycle boots. Work boots and the like will not protect your ankles/feet in a crash.

I'm in the army so out insurance plan requires us to wear all proper PPE (personal protective equipment) which requires gloves and helmets and a jacket with reflective stripes which mine has. And gloves and ankle supportive boots are issued to us

Full face or lose your face............ Arai RXQ, Knox Handroids and a Vanson...Even on the Wing and the Dyna. Keeps the Harley waving to a minimum for sure.

That's not to say that if you highly value your head, you gotta get the $700 model.

There's a website that compares G shock transfer to the head from an impact. They test the majority ofŕ Surprisingly, some of the more expensive models were out performed by cheaper models. This strictly counting just g-transfer and not bells/whistles that usually add considerable comfort and features.

I have found over the past half a century, or so, that you usually get what you pay for and this is especial true with helmets. I know that if I buy an Arai I am getting one of the best helmets in the world. I know that there are helmets as good, such as Shoei, Shark and so on. You do not have to pay retail for a helmet there are many new helmets on ebay in five hundred dollar range. If you use your helmet for the seven years that Arai says is the expected life of the helmet divided by say 500 dollars is about 7 dollars a month. Not a bad price for very good protection and the best costumer service.
The NTSB says that a good helmet is the most important safety devise on a Motorcycle.

^ This is true. I doubt anyone buying a Shoei or Arai would have to worry if they're getting quality or not. With premium lids, there is no second guessing if you're well covered or not. If one does a little research however, you can get by with a $200-$300 that would do just as good. *At least here in the States.

If you've got the means then go for the premium. If your budget is halfway from premium prices, do a little bit of snooping around and find a lid that's highly regarded in another market. That's how I've come to start using Shark lids. They fit me well and can be had here for not much more than mid-level lids. (Carbon Fiber RSR2 for $399 and Carbon Fiber RSI for $299 are my main lids)


Not to wander too far from the thread but safe to say that even a $50 full face will do you better in a crash than a half lid.

And to add onto what Andrew said, it doesn't really matter how much $$ you spend on your helmet if it doesn't fit right. If it doesn't fit your head right, then it's not going to protected you as intended by design, simple as that.

Make sure the damn lid actually fits your head first, worry about costs later.

Pvster is so right. Fit is so important. Tight is better then loose. If your helmet doesn't fit really well you will be more inclined not to wear it. I think I have heard every excuse/reason not to to wear a helmet and fit (pressure spots) and ventilation is at the top of the list. I have found that most people wear a helmet the is to big and doesn't fit the shape of their head.
I loved the Shark helmets I just could not get any of them to fit me. If it were not for the fit of the Rx7 I would wear another Aria or Shoei.
Price is important, but to me I would find another place to make up the difference. Even a second hand high quality helmet is better then a new lesser helmet.
My current helmet is a Green Nakano rx 7 was a second hand helmet. It was like new and a year old.
