First off, a high-ventilation crash helmet keeps your head cool in the summer or if you're riding for a long time. But that's not all of it. It also slows down the speed with which your helmet liner gets smelly (meaning you don't have to wash it that often). And, of course, ventilation to the front of the helmet helps keep your visor free of fog and reduces misting – even if you live in a cold/rainy/humid place, we advise you to stick the Pinlock on your visor as well. Of course, most helmets have sliders over the vent holes so you can open or close them on your own – buy a good ventilation helmet, and don't commit yourself to spend the winter months with the icicles hanging from your earholes!
Most helmets are using a similar system these days. They have one or more holes in the front or top of the crown of the helmet that allows air to pass through the shell of the helmet into the helmet. From there, air is usually directed through channels in the polystyrene shock absorbing liner and onto the head. Of course, the helmets have a fabric comfort liner inside, but they are usually perforated to allow air to circulate directly on the head.
From there, most helmets have an exhaust vent or two on the back of the helmet to allow the stale warmer air out of the helmet – or so the theory goes: although we've actually seen one or two helmets without any obvious exhaust vents that are highly rated for ventilation by the owners. Helmets also usually have a vent or two on the chin bar. These routes take air to the back of the viewfinder to help stop the visor from misting – and sometimes take air to the chin for extra ventilation around the jaw.
