Modular Motorcycle Helmet Buying Guide

Modular Motorcycle Helmets continue to grow in popularity as more and more motorcycle riders seek versatility in their gear. At the very basic level of functionality, a modular helmet has a hinge on the chin bar allowing it to be flipped up when stopped for de-fogging purposes, fresh air, to smoke a cigarette, or any other reason you'd want to turn a full-face motorcycle helmet into an open-face helmet with ease. Some modular motorcycle helmets even allow you to completely transform the helmets to the point where they are road-safe. Consider this video your 2010 Premium Modular Motorcycle Helmet Buying Guide.
