Best Racing Helmets for 2019 | How to choose one

Check out our guide on how to choose your next racing helmet.

If you choose to start your racing career or you’re just in a search for a new helmet you should do a bit of research before falling in love with the colour. No matter if its the latest Arai, Shoei or AGV, before buying you have to follow a few simple steps. For this reason, we made a video with the best racing helmets on the market and, we pointed out every important detail you should be aware of.

Check out the video in the window below or directly on our YouTube Channel.

There’s no shortage of options on the market, actually in the past decade the racing helmets have become a lot safer and, the prices have doubled.  So, forget about cutting some costs. For a top spec helmet you will need to pay between $700 and $1500, but unfortunately, the most expensive one is not always the best for you.

For our guide, we gathered the best racing helmets that are used in MotoGP and WSBK championships by the most famous riders in the industry. Models like the AGV Pista, AGV Corsa, Schuberth SR2, Arai RX-7V, Shoei X-Spirit III, Bell Race Star, X-Lite X803 are specially designed to be used together with a sports bike and mainly on a racetrack.

The key feature for these helmets is safety and comfort. The materials used are only exotic fibres of carbon or aramid with years of research behind them. Forget about reduced noise level or fitting a communication on it. Everything here is about staying in the tuck-in position with your chin against the gas tank.
