Background

While light weight is always a plus, it isn't necessarily the only factor to consider.

The center of gravity of a motorcycle helmet will affect how the weight is carried, which can make a lighter weight helmet feel heavy and vice versa.

The fit of the helmet is paramount, because a proper fit will distribute the weight more evenly around the head and down through the shoulders.

Also, helmet aerodynamics are important, because a proper design will help prevent helmet lift and buffeting (which can also be exacerbated by the helmet's perceived or real weight).

When comparing helmet mass, it's important to know the size of the helmet shell used by the manufacturer. Helmet weights may vary, depending upon size. Full-face helmets range from approximately 1400 to 1800 grams.

Once helmet weight reaches about 1650 grams, it becomes harder to mask its weight. Flip-up, or "modular", helmets typically weigh more than a comparable sized full-face helmet, due to the mechanism used to flip up the visor.

Helmet manufacturers claim that Snell certification can add 50 to 100 grams or more weight to a helmet.

That is due to the differences in the composition of the shell in order to meet Snell requirements, but modern fiber technologies may have the potential to reduce this amount.

For the motorcyclist, this means that it's also important to know which helmet safety standard the helmet meets when comparing weights.

Here is a comparison chart that shows the weights of some of the helmets that we've reviewed.

The helmets are listed by size. Remember, helmets should not be judged on weight alone; several other factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a helmet.

Shape Designations: NA = Narrow; MN = Medium Narrow; SN = Slightly Narrow; N = Neutral; SR = Slightly Round; MR = Medium Round; R = Round. C = Custom fit. Actual recorded weights using calibrated Polder electronic scale, claimed accurate to 1 g or 0.125 oz. Red numbers serve as reference to intervals of 10 in chart below.

Table Notes:
  • * The AGV Ti-Tech XXL size is equivalent to a size large in other helmets, in our opinion.
  • ** Safety Standards Column: D=DOT only. E=ECE only. D,E=Both. S=Snell (pre-2010). S2=Snell 2010. S3=Snell 2015. NOTE: This is where it gets difficult; this column lists the safety standard that was reported for the helmet when it was reviewed, which may change in newer versions. If the helmet is obviously available in both DOT and ECE, it shows D,E. If it has an E only, it is only an ECE helmet and if it has a D only, it is only available in the DOT version. But some manufacturers mark the helmets as DOT only even though a similar or different version is available in Europe. Plus, there are other world safety standards that some of these helmets meet, but not recorded here. Thus, the information in this column has limited usefulness and reliability.
  • NOTE: If you see an error (there are probably several!), please report it. Thanks.
  • a. The Vemar VSREV has a different internal shape than any other helmet, see the review for more details.
  • b. Original EXO-700 was classified as "Round". A more recent example, the 2009 EXO-700 Neon, feels Neutral to Long Oval.
  • c. Unconfirmed and possibly not correct.
