MPN speaks with Managing Editor Eric Garbe about the features and technology of full-face helmets and how they can keep riders safe.

I recently came across a graphic that stopped me in my tracks the first time I saw it. I was taking my motorcycle Basic Rider Skills course to get my motorcycle license, and in the manual there was a graphic from the Department of Traffic Accident Research in Germany, which identified the areas of the head that are most commonly impacted in the event of a motorcycle crash. The graphic showed that nearly 35 percent of impacts to the head occur in the jaw and face area.

With this scientific information readily available in all motorcycle education manuals and courses, it emphasizes the importance of full-face helmet coverage. Protection and proper fit should be the most important factor for customers when it comes to choosing a helmet, however full-face helmets inherently have several other benefits that you can point out to them.
