The helmets name is traced back to the german word "Spange", which means bangle. You can see, that the helmets form is is stabilized by bangles, and therefore evolved to a bangle-helmet...

The Spangenhelm was the topseller of the early medieval times: it was relatively easy to produce and was made from little material - compared to other helmets.
A headband is the typical symbol of a Spangenhelm. Four, or more, metalpieces are attached to it and riveted together in centerbands. Often the helmet was reinforced or decorated with additional pieces, such as noseguards or chain maille in the neck.
