There are few more convenient bits of touring kit than a flip-front helmet. Whether you’re revealing your face to the border patrol officer at a ferry port, taking a swig of water in a French layby, or even filling up at a petrol station, the simple pleasure of flipping up the front of your helmet, instead of faffing around with gloves and a chin strap, isn’t one to be underestimated.
Gear manufacturers have realised this too, and there are now plenty of options on the market for tourers looking to stump up their hard-earned cash on a flip-front helmet for a trip away. So, what’s the best flip-front lid that money can buy?

You can read the full test by subscribing to the ABR Digital Library today HERE, but for now we’ll take a look at one of the best performing helmets on test, the Klim TK1200 Karbon.
American company Klim produces some of the most sought-after adventure motorcycling gear in the world, with premium products such as the Badlands Pro jacket. Naturally, we expected good things from its new road-touring lid, and we certainly weren’t let down.
