Top 10 Safest Motorcycle Helmets - USA 2022/23

On this page you'll only find DOT motorcycle helmets that have been Snell certified, ECE helmets rated at four or five stars by the SHARP crash helmet safety testing scheme, or FIM Certified racing helmets. That means, as far as we can tell, these are some of the best protecting helmets around, though note: your No.1 priority when buying a helmet that's going to offer the best protection is buying one that fits really well, then look for a highly rated helmet with high safety certification.

With the helmets below, we know they've been safety tested and certified - and we then see how well they rate in terms of comfort, value for money, features and noise. That way, if you buy one of these crash helmets, not only will you get a helmet that offers excellent protection, but one that performs too.

The helmets below are ordered by helmet with the best overall review score first.
