A motorcycle helmet is the most important piece of gear any motorcyclist must own. We have a large selection of 200 series DOT helmets in stock as well as novelty helmets. Look at our complete helmet selection below.
The nature of motorcycle riding already makes it dangerous, so by using a motorcycle helmet, you reduce the chance of suffering serious injuries. Cheap motorcycle helmets is not something you should be looking for, as protecting your head is a priority. Invest in a quality DOT helmet. The whole purpose of motorcycle gear is first for protection and then for style. Keep this in mind when searching for the best helmet for you.
Custom motorcycle helmets is all the rage and contacting a local painter who knows how to keep the integrity of the DOT specification would be great. We know this is not always possible, so sometimes novelty helmets could at least satisfy the need for something unique.
In the United States, the DOT (Department of Transportation) handles the certification for the minimum standards necessary as outlined by FMVSS 218. Any helmet must pass this certification in order to be able to use the DOT sticker.
When researching motorcycle helmet reviews, you may see some mentions of a Snell certification. Snell is just another set of standards that many believe to be even more stringent than DOT, which is up for debate. Regardless, every Snell certified helmet still needs to pass the DOT standard first so having both is just another way to make sure you are doing your best to protect your precious head.
The proper sizing of your helmet is one thing you really have to pay attention to. Different helmet manufacturers have different sizing methods so make sure to try your helmet before you buy. Make sure the helmet is snug but not so constrictive that you can't feel comfortable! If it is not possible to try the helmet on, be absolutely sure to check the sizing chart provided.
Style, colors available, and graphics will be a factor in your choice. Novelty helmets, beanie helmets, 3/4 helmets, full faced helmets and modular helmets are the standards in styles. Pick one that works best for you and your personal style while also protecting your head!
