Light Weight Motorcycle Helmet Reviews

To class a helmet as light weight, we list only helmets that weigh around 1.4Kg or less here (under about 3lbs) – and that includes all types of helmet, full face, modular, the lot. Why? Well our research shows the average weight for a full face helmet is around 1.5Kg, so if a helmet’s considerably lighter than that, then we class it as a light weight helmet. Simple.

Lightweight helmets are generally comfier and easier to live with – plus the lighter the weight the more effectively a helmet can do its job. So, if having a light weight crash helmet is a priority for you, you’ll find all our reviews and articles on the lightest helmets here.
