I'm heading out to get me another 3/4 helmet soon. I much prefer to ride with my half helmet, as I am also claustrophobic. However, I just got a pair of Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headsets, and I put it in my 3/4 helmet. It installs easy in there, as it clamps onto the rim of the helmet and the speakers fit inside in the ear pockets very well. But with the half helmet, there is no place to mount the speakers without sewing in a lot of leather and cloth to create pockets for the speakers. Also more wind noise. So I will just get a second 3/4 helmet, as it will be easier to install the Sena into it. And the 3/4 will be a little safer too. I can wear it with or without a face mask and visor. I'll just get whatever I can find on a good sale around here.
Here's the way that I hear that they rated the different styles of helmets according to safety.
After a severe accident:
A FULL Helmet leaves you a FULL face
A 3/4 Helmet leaves you 3/4 of a face
A 1/2 Helmet leaves you 1/2 of a face
The question is "How much of a face to you need?"
I'm pretty ugly, so I figured I could get by with half a face!
