Top 10 safest motorcycle helmets – 2019

On this page you’ll only find helmets that have been rated at four or five stars by the SHARP crash helmet safety testing scheme. That means, as far as we can tell, these are some of the very safest helmets around (though note, your No.1 priority when buying a helmet is buying one that fits well, even before safety rating). We then look at other features to see how well they rate in terms of comfort, value, features, noise. That way, if you buy one of these crash helmets, not only will you get a really safe helmet, but one that performs too.
