Being able to have a more connected riding experience and feel the wind on your face is one of the reasons open face helmets are becoming so popular. Normally seen on scooter or café style bikes, an open face helmet allows you to take in the whole view of the road. Vega open-face helmets are DOT approved. Some of these helmets come with a face shield while others don’t. These helmets give you that retro vintage look without the heavy price.
