The open face helmet covers the ears, cheek and back of the head supplying the least amount of protecting but most amount of freedom of the face. This helmet can have clip on visor and is popular for those who want o wear goggles or glasses. 

What is a suitable helmet?

Motorcycle helmets greatly reduce injuries and fatalities in motorcycle accidents, thus many countries have laws requiring acceptable helmets to be worn by motorcycle riders. These laws vary considerably, often not including mopeds and other small-displacement bikes.

Most European countries apply the United Nations standard ECE 22.05, see below. Other European standards include: 

-ACU gold or silver badge (Auto-Cycle Union, UK)
-BSI 6658 (British Standards Institute, UK)[31]
-SHARP (UK)

In the United Kingdom, many riders choose helmets bearing an Auto-Cycle Union (ACU) Gold sticker as it defines a stricter standard than the legal minimum ECE 22.05 specification. Helmets with an ACU Gold sticker are the only ones allowed to be worn in competition, or at track days.
