Caberg Flip Front Motorcycle Helmets
Caberg are very well known for their flip up helmets. Whether you call it a Caberg flip front helmet, Caberg modular helmet, Caberg flip helmet, it is what it is. A full face helmet that opens at the front to reveal your face. The most famous, and popular, of the Caberg flip up helmets is the Caberg Duke, and personally I love it. Three main aspects set it apart from other flip up helmets. Let's start with the aesthetics. The Duke comes in your standard array of colours, so choosing doesn't become a chore, there is also a hi-vis yellow option for the extra safety conscious among us. It has the nice curve over the top of the head for aerodynamics, which becomes quite chiselled and mean looking at the face and chin, lovely. Next up is the thing most people are thinking about, the price. Caberg flip up helmets tend to be functional, do what they say on the tin, and sit in the lower to middle section of helmet price ranges. The Dukes come in at a very reasonable price for your first flip front helmet. The last point is very important, and most people won't even know about it. Put simply, different types of helmets get given a rating based on what they do and don't protect. They get one rating if they are open face, a different rating if they are full face, and so on. The Caberg Duke is one of the few helmets with a double rating. It has the P & J approval, which means it has a functional, not just cosmetic, protective chin bar, P, and can be safely used as a jet helmet, J, with the flip front locked in the up position. That is what makes it such a great Caberg flip front helmet, that ability to lock in the open position. Flip front helmets without the P & J approval are considered unsafe to operate the vehicle when they are open, and it is actually illegal to ride with a helmet flipped up if it does not carry the correct approval.
