Top Motorcycle Helmets 2016


Whether you are a Jedi superpower who has since caved to the dark side, or a man made of iron and powered by some intricate ball of energy where your heart used to be, you need a good helmet. Once you make the decision to be flat out awesome, and to stand above the crowd, the next step in the process is to find a helmet that adequately conveys your swag. All other things fall by the wayside if you don’t have the right helmet to match your style and technological specifications. The same can be said of riding a motorcycle.

Look, you don’t have to ride a motorcycle (though, you probably should!). But if you do choose to hop on two wheels, the next thing on your list of things to do is to find the best motorcycle helmet for your needs. In the Best Motorcycle Helmets of 2016 Buying Guide, we put forth our top selections based on our research, knowledge, and riding experiences throughout a variety of riding scenarios. In search of the best go-fast track-day motorcycle helmet? It’s right here. Prefer one of the top modular helmets in the game? Well, we hit those as well, along with the best commuter helmets, vintage motorcycle helmets, top ADV helmets, and off-road / motocross lids.

In the end, the main thing to remember is that motorcycle helmets are the single most important piece of gear that you need when you embark on your ride. There are a ton of things to consider with each, and as you search for the best selections from the top brands, the selection process can be a lot to take in. Head shapes, weights, materials, features. These are all integral pieces of the motorcycle helmet puzzle. The goal of the 2016 Motorcycle Helmet Buyers Guide is to filter the plethora of options down to the select few that stand out as the absolute best, and allow you to put it all together.
