Motorcycle Helmet Reviews


SCHUBERTH S1 SuperSport? The SCHUBERTH S1 has solid build quality and it’s relatively quiet. The large shell size (for XL) and thick neck roll are definitely a different feel. Words like “ultimate helmet”, “world’s quietest helmet”, “best helmet in the world”, “safest helmet” and more have been tossed around by exuberant marketeers in their descriptions …

Shark Race Helmet The Shark RSR is very expensive. It is relatively light at 1601 grams for a size XL. It is Snell certified and meets the ECE 22-05 and DOT standards. The face shield is very thick at 3 mm, yet it has outstanding optics. It also has an infinite adjustment for opening and …

Discount Snell Approved Motorcycle Helmet Meets DOT and Snell standards. The size XL fits “Round” or “Earth” shaped heads best (see the Motorcycle Helmet FAQ). Light weight at 1426 grams. Flimsy top vent extractor is attached to helmet with double-sided tape. Verdict? Spend more and get more. Can a motorcycle helmet be too cheap…or rather, too …

X-Lite X-901 Helmet Review The X-901 is a relatively quiet helmet. It has nice graphics; the face shield has a small setting for defogging; it is DOT safety standard. Fits “long oval” shaped heads best. The top venting needs further evaluation when weather changes. There is no mechanism to secure the extra length of chinstrap. …

OGK FF-4 Aeroblade Helmet Remember the old ´70’s automobile commercials that extolled the “road hugging weight” of the latest behemoth? I used to get a chuckle out of those ads. Let’s face it — if greater mass meant better “road hugging” ability, then Michael Schumacher would be driving a Kenworth! The same can be said …

Shoei’s Top-of-the-Line Racing Helmet Does motorcycling benefit from science, or is it the other way around? It seems pretty easy lately for manufacturers to apply 21st Century technology whenever they want to add the next generation of super-deluxe high-tech features and create the latest high-tech gear for our benefit. The evolution of motorcycles, engines, tires, …

Caberg Justissimo Review The Justissimo is a well-made flip-up helmet with some interesting features and nice attention to detail. Includes internal retractable tinted visor. It is also relatively quiet and it has good ventilation. The internal length from the back of helmet to chin bar is relatively short. What to call this type of helmet? …

Shoei’s Best-Selling Helmet of All Time? One of the benefits of conducting helmet reviews is the ability to compare many different brands and models against each other. Trying on a variety of helmets is crucial to finding the perfect fit. But it’s not easy to accomplish if the only source of helmet samples is the …

Baehr Silencer Helmet Review Very quiet, high quality helmets made for Baehr by FM in Italy to Baehr’s specifications. This helmet includes the unique Baehr electronic active microphone and two speakers. The outlet for the wiring hides in small pocket near chin. Face shield has slight tendency to fog up quicker than other helmets. Slightly …

LED Brake Light For Your Motorcycle Helmet We receive a lot of email from webBikeWorld visitors asking for ways to improve the visibility of motorcycles in traffic. I believe it was the Hurt study that first documented one of the leading causes of accidents involving motorcycles. It’s because other drivers claim they didn’t see the bike or …

OGK FF-3 Motorcycle Helmet Review The OGK FF-3 has modern styling and excellent ventilation. It meets the EC 22.05 and BS6658 Type A ACU approval standards. The FF-3 was also listed on the Snell 2000 Approved Helmets List The helmet is very comfortable but the sizing appears to run slightly on the large side. All …

An $84.00 Flip-up? The unsolicited emails from Zeus 508 helmet owners started arriving about three years ago. We received so many comments that we decided to set up a Zeus “Owner Reports” page as an online testimonial to the product from its many fans. Eventually, we just had to find out what all the excitement was about. …

KBC VR-1 Helmet Review Excellent value for the money. Meets DOT, Snell 2000 and the tough Euro EC22/05 or BS6658 Type A ACU approval standards. The VR-1 is comfortable and lightweight at 1621 grams. Airflow through top of helmet is slightly weak and the helmet is also a bit noisy. The latest issue of a …

ROOF Boxer Helmet Review Unique style and features, no doubt about it. Flip-up chin guard rotates to the back of the helmet to effectively convert it to an open-face. Chin guard rotates forward over the visor. Two manual snaps are used to secure the chin guard to the helmet shell. Visor has infinite opening adjustments. …

Vega Summit XPV Flip-Up The Vega Summit XPV has a roomy interior compared to other flip-up motorcycle helmets. It also has a comfortable, plush liner. The helmet is relatively quiet, due in part to the flush-fitting visor which also has a quick release, unusual on flip-up helmets. The paint quality is good with deep shine. …

Lazer Century Helmet Review This was the very first motorcycle helmet review published on webBikeWorld (Spring of 2001). webBikeWorld was started in 2000. Riders who wear eyeglasses sometimes find it difficult to wear full-face helmets. Putting on a full-face helmet involves taking off your eyeglasses, putting on the helmet, and then trying to squeeze the …
