Choosing a helmet is not always an easy task. There are many factors to consider asides from safety. Most certified DOT, Snell, and ECE certified helmets will generally protect your head with the same degree of protection. If the majority of helmets will protect you relatively the same then why not buy the cheapest one?

Safety, although the most important, is but one aspect of a motorcycle helmet you should consider. Comfort, ventilation, noise control, style, and special features are what separate helmets into various classes of value.

The motorcycle helmet comparison chart below lists popular full-face and modular style helmets currently on the market. Each helmet has a rating for style, visor, ventilation, and noise control. Clicking on the column headings will sort the criteria in ascending/descending order.

Use this chart to help you make your next helmet purchase. To view more information, as well as user reviews on the individual helmets listed, click on the name of the helmet model.
