A review of top brand name Motorcycle Helmets.

When it comes to protection a motorcycle helmet really is a must. Now the question become what helmet to choose. With so many different types of helmets available its tough to decide which motorcycle helmet is the right one for you. Really that choice is realyl up to you as long as you choose a helmet that is DOT approved you will have headgear that will offer you some protection in case of a crash. In this article I will give a short review of each of the following manufacturers of head gear for bikes. They manufactures are as follows: Bell, KBC, Shoei, HJC, Scorpion and AGV. 

Lets start with Bell motorcycle helmets. Bell does not only make helmets for motorcycles but also for auto racing, snow, street  and off road  racing. Bell motorcycle helmets come in a variety of models like full face or  half face which then also come in lots of different colors and styles to suit  a variety of tastes. The apex and sprint line by Bell are perfect for sport bikes where the drifter and shorty line are more suited to cruisers and scooters. Bell began as a small auto parts store in the suburbs of LA that turned in to a multi million dollar enterprise. Bell head gear has been worn by more world champions then any other brand. 

KBC is our next candidate for affordable quality head gear. KBC motorcycle helmets have been available for the past 17 years and are ever growing in popularity. This company is responsible for 75 percent of the motor cross helmets being currently produced. By offering private label to other companies they are able to reach a much wider customer base. KBC's product selection consist of the following categories: Street, Off Road, Cruiser, Ed Hardy and special edition helmets. The street line consists of several attractive model that are geared towards appealing to sport bike riders. The offroad line also has several models that come in a variety of colors including a youth line. The cruiser line consists of half face or skull cap type helmets all made to appeal to riders of cruiser bikes. The Ed hardy collection by KBC offers the most modern skins on a motorcycle helmet along with models for both sport bike and cruiser riders. 

Shoei motorcycle helmets are available for street riding as well as off road use. Shoei 's on road line has several selections of helmets available for both sport bike and cruiser riding. The off road line currently has two different models with about 11 different styles to choose from. It should not be hard to find a Shoei off road helmet that will be to your taste.

HJC helmets are made for motorcycle, auto, off road, cruiser and snow mobile use. HJC actually makes helmets, some of which have been wind tunnel tested up to 196 MPH. HJC also makes a really nice carbon fiber DOT approved helmet. Made of a carbon fiber composite weave shell which makes it extremely light. It comes with a optically superior pinlock face shield as well as a quick replacement tool less replacement system. This carbon fiber helmet also features HJC's advanced channeling ventilation system. They are also currently making this cool helmet in a cruiser version. 

Scorpion motorcycle helmets are wholly made by Scorpion. The only thing Scorpion buys is the liner and the face shield everything else is manufactured in house. This is a very unique situation because most other manufacturers buy all their bits and pieces from a variety of manufacturers. Because of this Scorpion can better control the cost of materials and therefore offer a quality helmet at a much cheaper price. Generally a Scorpion motorcycle helmet that sells for 200 to 300 dollars would sell for 5 to 600 hundred if it were made by another manufacturer. Currently the Scorpion Helmet collection consist of helmets made for Street, Snow and Off Road use. This company has done so well for itself they have also added gloves, jackets, and promotional products.

Last but not least is AGV. Agv motorcycle helmets have been around for 60 years which alone is a remarkable accomplishment. You will find AGV helmets at almost every race track you will ever go to. Many World Super  Bike Champions have worn an AGV helmet when crossing the finish line. Here are a few of their names Giacomo Agostini, Barry Sheene, Kenny Roberts, Johnny Cecotto, Angel Nieto, Marco Lucchinelli, Franco Uncini, Fausto Gresini, Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Randy Mamola, and Luca Cadalora.  Now AGV is made in Italy and therefore an import with a price tag that reflects that figure on spending $500+ on a AGV motorcycle helmet. This company does make a high quality helmet rich with motorcycle racing history. Race proven their  head gear is very difficult to beat when it comes to quality and sheer good looks.
