    Default Best Helmet Money Can Buy?



    First post and already looking for some help from you guys!

    I want to start biking to work every day to get my sorry self into shape. Safety is my chief concern as I have a family. I want to buy the best helmet money can buy.

    But I don't know which to pick.

    I obviously don't care about speed/looks, just keeping my noggin' in tact. Does it matter or will any of those in the list be good?

    Shoei / Arai period.. Their R&D and stringent safety checks..

    I personally go for Shoei.

    Any Arai or Shoei helmet would fit the bill.

    You can consider the Arai RX7X (~$700) or Shoei GT-Air (~$600-700) both from the authorised dealers here in Singapore.

    Most important part is getting it to fit CORRECTLY. Measure your head's circumference and get the right size helmet for you. 90% of bikers i know are wearing the wrong sized helmet with the most popular being an M due to "best resale value". I was wearing an M for the longest time until i measured my head to be 55-56cm meant that i was an "S" size and now i feel much better with the helmet.

    Secondly, if safety is of utmost importance to you, get a full-face helmet. Not half or 3/4 or modular helmet. Read in a statistic somewhere that 35% of motorcycle accidents result in chin injuries which can only be mitigated by a full-face helmet (or modular but the hinge would be the weakest link).

    Good luck and ride safe!

    HJC RPHA 11 and Scorpion EXO AT950 will be my best picks. They’re both safe and stylish.

    It could not make claim if it's not PSB approved helmet, no matter how expensive it is.

    Not true. There may be a risk, but not all claims checks for PSB helmet.
