Polycarbonate Motorcycle Helmet Reviews

Polycarbonate plastic is one of the most common materials motorcycle helmets are made from. It’s incredibly tough and lightweight and when it’s combined with a polystyrene liner, offers great impact resistance. It’s also relatively cheap to manufacture so, in many ways, it’s the ideal material for a crash helmet.

Having said that, more expensive helmets tend to be made from complex composite materials such as fibreglass, carbon fibre and aramid – or a mix of all three. Still, many great performing helmets continue to be made out of polycarbonate – including helmets that score the maximum five star safety rating on SHARP helmet safety tests – so they’re well worth considering.

On these pages, you’ll find only crash helmets with polycarbonate shells.
