Top 10 motorcycle crash helmets – 2022

We take a balanced and totally independent view of each helmet based on what owners and riders think, because it’s only when you use a helmet day-in day-out you get to find any problems.

Here’s our current top 10 crash helmets list for 2022 – in no particular order and including all helmet types, based on what we think are the best performers after assessment of a wide range of helmet features; including safety, comfort, noise levels, value for money and feature levels as covered in our full reviews. Buy one of these and we think you’ll be getting a great helmet.

Click on a helmet to check out the full review and if you like the look of one, please click a link in the article to visit one of our recommended retailers. We only recommend retailers that offer independently-verified excellent service, so you should be well looked after. If you click through and buy, we get a small fraction of the price (at no extra cost to you). It’s how we fund the site – so thanks a million!
