The thing about motorcycles is the thrill that comes with riding one on the open roads. The wind rushing across your face is a reminder of the untethered freedom you have atop that cycle. The exhilirating feeling however comes with great responsibility for your safety, and smart and diligent good riding practices should accompany that freedom.

The Best Motorcycle Helmets

Wearing the right motorcycle helmet protects you from potentially life-threatening injuries. There are so many helmets available that you have no excuse for not wearing one.  As for the “best”, that will be up to you as best can be price, quality, design, or style, or some combination.  Here are some top picks for you to consider:

1. Bell Qualifier Street Helmet

We like this Bell Helmet because it is made by people who have known what a head needs since 1954. The Bell Qualifier helmet can be trusted because it has industrial-level strength when it comes to protection.

The outer shell of this scooter helmet is made from quality polycarbonate and ABS. These two elements are some of the hardest plastics known.

In the event of an accident, the heavy-duty plastic shell redistributes the shock of impact throughout the helmet casing. Redirecting impact from the source minimizes injury to the skull.

The face shield is designed with a screen to protect the eyes from ultraviolet light. In addition, the screen is scratch-resistant and exhibits anti-fogging properties.

Some of us don’t like the sound of the wind as it slaps past the ears, Bell qualifier takes care of that through its thick wind collar. The collar filters the noise of the user’s surroundings, especially the wind.

The internal lining is made of antibacterial material. When you sweat heavily, the helmet environment will discourage the growth of bacteria. This lining is easily removable when it is time for a wash (machine wash and then air-dry).

If you are the rider that takes your music with you, slide in your speakers/ helmet headphones inside the integrated speaker pocket.

The Bell Qualifier Street Helmet comes with a 5-year limited warranty.


  • Extra-strength polycarbonate and ABS shell covering
  • The face shield is anti-fog, non-scratch with UV filtering capabilities
  • The wind collar is an ingenious addition to this helmet
  • Antibacterial and easy to wash lining promotes good hygiene
  • A 5-year warranty


  • The visor isn’t tinted

2. Vega Rebel Warrior Motorcycle Half Helmet

Vega Helmets is another long-standing helmet maker who has been making helmets for 26 years. They currently own one of the bestselling durable half-helmets in the market: the Vega Rebel Warrior helmet, which protects your skull from a hard impact.

The outside shell of the helmet is made out of extended polystyrene (EPS) which can handle high impact levels. An EPS liner works by absorbing the shock at the point of impact and then redistributing it to the rest of the helmet. Redistributing the impact prevents the force from penetrating the helmet and into your skull.

The EPS lining redistributes heat the same way so that you do not overheat on hot days.

The half-helmet has a UV-protection sun-visor, and eye protection. Slide the glass downwards to set in place.

The Vega Rebel Warrior is unique for a scooter helmet because of its dial neck strap. You can increase or lower the tightness of the helmet with this feature, keeping it secure.

If you sweat on the road, there is another helpful element to mitigate this. The internal fabric lining on the helmet is moisture wicking, which cools you down.

Keep in mind that the Vega Rebel warrior is only a half-helmet so your chin and jaw are not protected.

The helmet comes with a 5-year warranty.


  • The EPS material making the outer shell is more than satisfactory in its protection duties
  • The visor is lightweight and easy to use
  • Adjustable neck strap ensures comfort and security of the helmet
  • The moisture-wicking fabric of the inner lining keeps your head dry even when you sweat
  • The helmet weighs only 2.2 pounds


  • Since it is a half-helmet, only half of your head is protected from impact

Full-face helmets usually cause the head to overheat, but the YEMA has a way to mitigate this effect. The ventilation system of the helmet is airy enough for a constant flow of air to keep circulation.

Giro Scamp

The Giro Scamp is the friendliest kids helmet we encountered on the market. The helmet utilizes an in-mold construction technology to produce extremely lightweight headgear.

You have the option of getting a Giro Scamp with MIPS or without. The MIPS foam layer will protect the skull from impact. It, however, doesn’t stop the head and neck from distorting in a fall.

A dial-to-adjust system secures the helmet firmly. To use this dial, simply twist it to change the settings of this helmet.

Being a kid’s helmet, the Giro Scamp is only available in small and extra small. The small is the larger size, fitting circumferences between 49cm and 53cm. Extra small fits circumferences of 45cm to 49cm.

Giro Scamp fits snugly atop a toddler’s head with the rear end of the helmet presenting an almost-flat profile.

We recommend this helmet for preschool children as well as toddlers.

7. Top Rated Bike Helmets

Lazer Genesis 2020 Helmet

When you hold the Lazer, the first thing you will notice about it is how light it will feel. The medium size helmet weighs .44 pounds and a size small stands at .42 pounds. These are some of the lightest helmets on the market.

Lazer Genesis 2020 helmets achieved these enviable weights by using an in-mold construction process.

During its construction, the inside layer of polystyrene foam and the hard outer shell are shaped using heat. The two components are then banded together. Shaping and venting take place at this stage.

In the end, this helmet has 22 vented openings, and thanks to the inner construction it feels like you are wearing nothing in your head.

The Lazer genesis complies with all relevant safety standards. However, the design process means that an extra layer of MIPS is added for additional protection.

Instead of using a dial to fasten it like most helmets, the Lazer has a roller wheel system known as the Rollsys. The Rollsys feature is simple to grasp and operate. Its design reduces the weight of the helmet and leaves more room for the head and hair. So if you have plenty of hair, this helmet is right for you.

You can adjust the Lazer to snugly fit onto your head shape using the vertical alignment feature found at the rear-end of this helmet.

When you purchase this helmet, you get two sets of pads, one thick and the other much thinner and breathable.

The thicker pad is meant for comfort on a leisurely ride while the thin pad is meant for racing.

The helmet straps feel soft against the temple, though you can adjust them to your preference. Their adjustability accommodates several types of eyewear.

Lazer Genesis is weatherproofed because of an additional aeroshell outer layer. The aeroshell protects the rider’s face from wind and water whipping.

In fairer weather, you can remove the aeroshell so that the ventilation system performs at its maximum.

To conclude, the Lazer Genesis 2020 has created a futuristic helmet. It is air-light, offers maximum comfort and versatility. You wear this beautiful helmet, and you forget that you have it on.

Predator Motorcycle Helmet

The Predator motorcycle helmet is a true rebel against the mundane motorcycle designs.

These helmets are made for those who want to create a spectacular display away from the standard riders.

What strikes most about the predator helmet is the audacious design and the incorporation of the latest production technology into its innovations. This is the key to a safe and comfortable helmet that does not sacrifice the “cool factor”.

The Basic Layout of a Predator Motorcycle Helmet

  • The Matt Black helmet sports 34cm long dreadlocks. This alone already creates an astonishing effect on an otherwise ordinary helmet.
  • The helmet frame uses fortified construction, using numerous layers of Kevlar and fiberglass. This should demonstrate just how strong the helmets are.
  • The weight of this helmet is 1800G, including the twenty-two locks attached to it.
  • The head cooling action is controlled by a four-mode ventilation system.
  • The helmet visor incorporates a quick-release feature that allows you to change it based on the level of light available. The basic design of the helmet is a light visor. You can get an additionally-tinted one on request.

Accessories for your Predator Helmet

You can further customize your custom predator helmet using a number of exciting options. Usually, each additional custom request adds to the overall cost of the helmet.

The following are some ways you can make your outstanding helmet even more exceptional.

1. Laser Modules

The effect of laser beams in a low visibility, smoky, or foggy environment is cinematic. Predator Helmets offer the option of adding a three-pointed laser element encased in aluminum.

The laser power is 5mW according to the manufacturer. This power is safe around the retina. The lasers are battery powered using 2 triple-A batteries.

To turn on your laser beams, locate a tiny switch at the bottom of the helmet. However, never do so while driving as the laser can be a distraction on the road.

2. One-Color Paint Work

The basic color of the predator helmet is matte black with a rough texture.

There are, however, several other color options that you can request for, such as metallic or sheen gloss.

Since there are literally thousands of hues and tones you can try, use the RAL color chart to guide the selection.

3. An Extra-Tinted Visor

In its basic form, your helmet is designed with a clear eye-shield. To protect yourself in bright light conditions, the tinted shield comes in handy.

4. Coated-Mirror Visor

The mirror visor is one of our favorite features because of the effect that a toned mirror shield creates. It also effectively hides the user’s face.

5. Longer, More Dreadlocks

One unique feature of the predator helmet is its dreadlocks. There are three ways you can go about installing dreadlocks:

  • 34cm long dreadlocks
  • 45cm dreads
  • Combine both lengths for a fuller effect

You can get the dreadlocks in black or white.

6. Fangs

It is not a complete predator until it bares its fangs. Install realistic-looking canine teeth to complete the theme.

The surreal aerography technique creates an aggressive vibe to the helmet.

7. Engravings

Engraving your helmet is a more personal expression of your style. Choose a figure of your choice to be engraved.

Scars and cryptographs are amongst the most popular options.

8. The Carbon Version of the Predator Helmet

This option is an overhaul on the entire appearance of the helmet. It will be covered by carbon fiber and polished, rather than use fiberglass. However, it costs a pretty penny to carry out this change.
