When the temperatures start climbing, nothing beats the feeling of the cool breeze—the kind that you can enjoy when wearing a 3/4 helmet. These helmets look great and offer supreme comfort, excellent build quality, and up-to-date DOT protection. Keeping your head enclosed in a full-face helmet might not sound appealing during a long summer ride, so we’ve compiled a collection of some of our favorite 3/4 models on the market.
The matte colorblock design gives the helmet a distinct style all its own, and the retractable anti-scratch sun shield helps block the summer sun’s harmful rays.
The Mason’s Yard helmet has also been designed to fit H-D’s helmet headset, so the rider can stay connected to others in the pack. A removable liner and cheek pads are washable to ensure a fresh feel is there to match the fresh appearance of this unique open-face helmet.
An integrated sun visor blocks out pesky UV rays, and an internal ventilation system helps keep your head fresh and cool during the hot summer months. Removable and washable inner liners mean you can have a fresh feel with every ride. The Liberty Jet helmet is DOT and ECE certified to give you a sense of more than adequate protection.
Well, there’s no need to invest in an entire helmet collection, as Scorpion’s Covert helmet can be easily transformed between the three styles, making it one of the most versatile lids on the market today.
Scorpion’s designers first started with a half helmet platform then worked in a drop-down sun visor for UV protection, and took it one step further with the incorporation of a rear comfort sleeve, which takes it into 3/4, open-face territory. There’s really no good excuse not to buy this helmet.
Constructed from wide-weave pure carbon fiber, this helmet is truly for those who can appreciate gear that earns the highest marks in both function and form. The Cabrio Carbon also features a drop-down sun shield and a DOT-approved quick-release chinstrap for a secure, snug fitment, as well as easy on/off abilities.
The interior of the helmet features a plush microsuede lining with contrast stitching, and the option of either a fiberglass composite or carbon-fiber outer shell. When it comes to the 3/4 motorcycle lid, Bell is keeping its classic design pure while offering all the amenities today’s rider demands.
