Motorcycle Helmets for Dirt Bikes, Street Bikes and Adventure Motorcycles

The helmet is arguably the most important piece of gear that any motorcyclist owns. It plays a vital role in protecting the rider from impact or abrasion to the head in the event of a crash. Perhaps because it is so important, numerous types and styles of helmets have become available to meet the needs and preferences of a variety of riders. This page is the perfect starting point to find the right helmet for you.

We want your shopping experience to be as simple as possible. That’s why we’ve split our helmets into categories based on the type of motorcycle you ride: dirt bike, street bike and adventure motorcycle. All you have to do is pick a style that you like, and you’re ready to go. The product description of any particular helmet can fill you in on the finer details, and the customer reviews can give you real insight directly from other riders.

Types of Helmets

There are several types of helmets. Full face helmets provide the most protection, while open face and half helmets leave your face exposed. Safety is the primary advantage of full face helmets, while freedom and the open air are the primary draws of open face and half helmets. Modular helmets are also available. These appear like full face helmets and feature a chin bar and face shield, but they can convert to open face helmets when you are not riding – the chin bar flips up. Most modular helmets are not designed to be used in the open-face position while you are riding.

Off-road helmets borrow concepts from the full face helmet, but the design is modified for the needs of dirt bike riders. Goggles are designed to be used instead of a built-in face shield, helping to improve visibility in dusty environments. A long visor is included on top. The chin bar is long and pointed. This improves airflow, allowing the rider to exert more energy while riding without running out of breath. Adventure or dual sport helmets feature a hybrid concept, preserving the built-in face shield of traditional full face helmets while including the visor and pointed chin bar of off-road helmets. They’re a fantastic option if you think that your riding will take you anywhere from highways to forest roads.

Construction

In the simplest terms, motorcycle helmets are built with a durable outer shell (made out of materials like fiberglass or carbon fiber) and an inner layer of EPS foam which cradles the skull. In an impact, the outer shell protects the rider’s head from abrasion and punctures, while the inner shell cushions the head against the impact. As a result, some accidents can occur that leave the helmet looking perfectly fine even though the inner foam has been compromised from the impact. Because of this, you should not continue to use any helmet which has been in an accident. If you want to maintain impact protection, you need to get a new helmet.

Safety Standards

To ensure safety and quality, helmet manufacturers make their helmets according to certain safety standards. As you research your next helmet, you may notice such standards mentioned in the product description. These standards guide manufactures in creating helmets that keep riders protected in the event of a crash on or off road.

For example, one exemplary certification is Snell. The Snell safety certification is enforced by a private, non-profit organization. Rigorous testing makes this standard hard to earn, therefore making its certified helmets extremely durable. Another safety certification is ECE. This is a European standard and is widely recognized internationally. It uses a relatively rigorous testing procedure and is regularly reviewed and updated.

Fitment

A safety certification is one thing to watch out for when you are shopping for a new motorcycle helmet, but that’s only one piece of the puzzle. Your helmet also needs to fit well. An improperly fitted helmet will not protect you in the way it is designed to do. Because of this, proper fitment is essential. We have fitment details on all of our helmet product descriptions to ensure that you’re able to get the right fit for that specific helmet. If by chance you order a helmet that doesn’t fit quite right, please take advantage of our fit guarantee. It allows you to exchange your helmet for the right size – and on the first exchange, there is absolutely no cost for you (not even shipping). It’s important that you take safety seriously and get a helmet that fits correctly.

Keep in mind that a new helmet will generally fit a little tight when you first put it on. Through the normal course of wear, the material will loosen. If you get a new helmet that doesn’t fit tightly, after a few months, it might be too loose. If your helmet feels a little snug when you first get it, don’t worry – it’s intentional.

Other Considerations

Although safety should be your primary concern with any helmet, there are a number of additional features that might persuade you toward one helmet or another. For example, some helmets feature fog-resistant face shields. This can be important if you ride in cold weather. If you ride in warm weather, you might want to look for extra vents in the helmet for increased airflow. Removable liners can make cleaning your helmet easier. Remember, you’re going to be spending a lot of time with your head inside of your helmet. A little comfort and convenience can make a huge difference in how you feel about your helmet six months down the road.

If you’re ready for a new helmet, you can’t go wrong with Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. We’ve got a selection of many brands, designs and colors. Check out our options today and pick out your next helmet now.

  • AFX FX-41 Dual Sport Motorcycle Helmet

    ★★★★☆

    Dwayne in GA

    Overall nice helmet.

    Seems like a decent quality, reasonably priced ADV helmet. Definitely ventilated. I did fit Cardo speakers but there is no real speaker hole and had to try several variations of shoving the speakers forward toward the strap connections to get them where they would be comfortable and could hear them. Adjusting where the straps connect and making an indent for the speakers would make the helmet much better. Sun shield is easy to operate and I like the quick release strap though there was no where to store the excess strap once you had it adjusted so had to cut that off and burn with the lighter to keep from fraying. Wearing sunglasses did not work for me and after about 30 minutes I had to remove them.

    Super good!!!

    This is a super good helmet. I got this for my dad two years ago. He was tired of wearing a dirt bike helmet for street riding, so I got this for him as a present. He really likes it and would recommend it.

    The swiss army knife

    I love this helmet. It is great having so many different options on the fly. I can flip down the sunglass shade when the Sun starts to set in the middle of my ride. I can also flip the whole front of the face mask up if I need to talk to someone. There is also multiple vent options to adjust for winter or summer riding. Great for adventure riding.

    Logan in FL

    Excellent Helmet

    Overall, very happy with the purchase. Originally ordered a Fox Racing V2 but the fitment was not even close to the measurements listed on their site. Ended up returning and got this one as my secondary choice, It should have been my first. Well built, very comfortable and secure. Its light and the finish is very nice. The only thing I wish they would include is a bag that offered a bit more protection like the Fox versions. I may end up getting a bigger bag to offer more protection during storage and transport in the trucks and trailers. Rocky Mountain made the return very easy on the original helmet. Really can't say enough about them.
