Top 10 Safest Motorcycle Helmet Brands 2019 in hanoi

Which crash helmet manufacturer makes the safest helmets?

top crash helmet safety brands 2016We scoured the UK SHARP crash helmet testing data to find out which helmet brands are the ones you can trust – the ones that’ll give you the best protection in an accident.

Only SHARP testing data gives comparative scores so we can see how well helmets perform relative to each other. So that’s what we use. It’s not perfect and some brands are excluded (read more in the methodology section at the bottom) but it’s the best data we’ve got.

So, here are the results of our latest survey – using updated data from 2015-19 and showing which are the safest crash helmet brands. If you’re after a new helmet and haven’t got time to read our reviews, you might want to consider one of these brands.

No.1 – Shoeishoei helmets logo

Shoei are known for producing more expensive, well-built helmets at the top end of the market. All of which shows in their amazing ranking in our safety review. Across all 12 Shoei helmets tested, they’ve scored an average of 4.2/5 and both their latest helmets scored maximum 5 star ratings (that’s the X-Spirit III and Ryd). It’s the first year Shoei has topped our charts – so a massive Well Done Shoei! Check out our Shoei helmet reviews here.

No.2 – AraiArai-helmets-Logo

Arai didn’t use to score very highly in SHARP tests, but that’s changed massively in recent years. Of 5 helmets tested since 2015, their average test score has been a truly amazing 4.4/5 with both the QV Pro and RX-7v scoring maximum 5 stars for safety (though their average overall score is 3.6 which is why they’re just in 2nd place behind Shoei). Which means you can really trust their latest generation of helmets to perform. Check out our latest Arai reviews here.

No.3 – AGVagv crash helmets logo

Italian helmet maker AGV stays at 3rd place for 2019. AGV has been making very fine helmets since 1947 and, of course, they’re known for be-lidding the hallowed head of Valentino himself – and let’s face it, he’s not going to put just any old lid on now is he? Actually, he might if the price is right. But anyway, of 9 helmets tested since 2015, three scored maximum 5 stars (Corsa R, Pista GP-R and Veloce S) and the rest were four stars, showing you really can trust an AGV. Wowzers – incredible job AGV. You can find our AGV helmet reviews here.

No.4 – Bell HelmetsBell Helmets logo

At No.4 , Bell are still doing great but they’ve slid down from top spot recently, partly because the others seem to have really upped their games. And despite Bell having their last 2 tested helmets score maximum 5 stars (that’s the Bell Star and Race Star) they’ve been knocked into fourth mainly because the Qualifier DLX dropped a couple of points. Having said that, Bell has scored a massive 4.5/5 across all 13 tested helmets over the years, which is the highest rating overall. But because we weight recent reviews more heavily, that was enough to push Bell down the rankings a notch or two. As always, you can read all our Bell helmet reviews here.

No.5 – X-LiteX-Lite logo

X-Lite are part of the Nolan group of companies. Their stated focus is to produce the safest possible helmets and their thoroughly decent score here shows that they’re bang on the money. There have been ten X-Lite helmets included in SHARP testing and although only two helmets scored the maximum 5/5, all the others scored four stars, showing X-Lite are a really trustworthy brand to keep your grey matter safe. Find all our X-Lite helmet reviews here.

No.6 – NolanNolan Helmets logo

In at eighth place is the daddy of the Nolan group brands – Nolan itself, this time losing to sister-brand X-Lite by the narrowest of margins. Every single one of the twelve tested Nolan helmets has scored 4/5 stars in the SHARP safety test. Just Wow. What’s also notable is that each of their tested flip-up helmets scored 100% when it came to keeping their chin bar fully locked – which really isn’t easy to do. That’s a real testament to their design, manufacturing and quality control excellence. For all our Nolan helmet articles, look here.

No.7 – MTMT-helmets-logo

Narrowly nudging out giants Shark and HJC for 2019 is Spanish maker MT. It’s probably a surprise for some, out-pointing well above known brands like that. But of their eight helmets tested, two scored a maximum 5/5 stars, four scored 4/5 and two 3/5 putting them in a very healthy seventh. That’s a particularly incredible position when you realise most of their helmets come in under £100! Top job MT. Check out our MT reviews here.

No8. – Sharkshark helmets logo

A very solid showing for French maker, Shark Helmets. They’ve had a massive 8 helmets tested by SHARP in the last four years with an average score of 3.9/5 stars. In fact, all but one scored 4/5 stars which is an awesome performance (plus the chin bars on both tested modulars scored 100% too which is a rarity). All in all an amazing job from the French helmet masters. Click this link to check out all our Shark helmet reviews.

No.9 – HJCHJC helmets logo

Welcome to HJC – because 2019 is the first year HJC has made it into our top 10 safest helmets list. That’s partly because of great performances by the five star rated HJC FG-ST and the four star budget lid the CS-15. Overall, their 5 most recently tested helmets scored 3.8/5 SHARP stars sending them sky rocketing up our chart from 18th. Nice one HJC – click to check all our HJC helmet reviews.

No.10 – CabergCaberg helmets logo

It’s a bit of a fall from grace for Caberg – down from top spot in our last year’s chart. It’s not really their fault though; it’s mainly due to the fact that not many Cabergs have been tested by SHARP recently. Across all 14 tested Cabergs their average is a fantastic 4.3 stars, but the poor 2 star rating of the Stunt pulled their recent average down, despite a great showing from the 4 star rated Caberg Droid modular (with 100% chin bar test). Still, they’ve some really highly safety rated helmets on their books – find all our Caberg helmet reviews here.

So that’s our best helmet brands for UK ECE tested helmets 2019. Read on to find out why our chart simply provides a snapshot using publicly available data to give helmet buyers a way to quickly find safety tested helmets, and why it can’t be comprehensive and give equal covering all helmet brands.


Any chart/study like this has it’s drawbacks of course, but hopefully it’s a pretty good snapshot of how safe some of the main helmet brands will perform in an accident, relative to each other.

This table relies on SHARP crash helmet testing data only (covering 2010 to 2019) so it’s never going to be fully comprehensive. And we’ve not included every helmet brand in the list. There’s a few reasons for this. Maybe they’ve not been tested enough to give a reasonably reliable amount of data – or maybe they’ve not been tested at all. Or maybe they’ve so little distribution, that we’ve chosen to leave a brand out. We’ve tended to focus on the main brands – meaning brands that are more widely known and which helmet buyers will want to know about and be able to find in motorbike shops.

Sorry Sparx, Osbe, Halfords and the like.

Our main drawback is the limited number of helmets tested for some brands which will slant the figures – SHARP choose and buy the helmets themselves, so that’s bound to skew the figures. If a brand’s helmets haven’t been chosen for testing, then they simply won’t appear in our table.

As alluded to above, to avoid sample size skewing, we’ve excluded some brands where a brand hasn’t had a reasonable tested sample size. Why? Well, imagine one brand has 10 helmets tested with an average score of 3 stars, they could be below a brand with just one helmet scoring 4. So because of this, where there’s only a handful of helmets available to score, we’ve usually removed the brand from the survey.

And of course, SHARP only tests ECE helmets bought in the UK, which may be different from helmets found in DOT or other areas.

It’s worth pointing out that there are some detractors of the SHARP test too, reckoning that it’s not real world enough. Which may or may not be true. However, we think it’s about as good as it gets – you can read what the test entails here and an analysis of SHARP data here and make your own mind up if you like.

Whatever your point of view, what is going for the SHARP testing regime is that it’s held under controlled circumstances in a laboratory so each helmet should be subject to an identical test – meaning it’s possible to compare the results of each test on each helmet. Yes, agreed, it might not fully simulate the accident where you hit diesel while hanging off your Z1000 and bash your helmet on a curbstone at a 15 degree angle then scrail it down the road for 100 yards, but it does subject the helmet to impacts from multiple sides and show which individual helmets – all things being equal – perform best. So, we reckon it’s about as good information as is available and that’s what we’re basing this analysis on.

The scoring is simple. Where a helmet was awarded five stars, we’ve given it 5 points. Where it scored one star we’ve given it 1 point. We then add up the total number of points and divide it by the number of helmets tested over the last few years to find the average (mean). We then ordered the list, putting the highest scoring first. In the event of a tie-break, we also looked at helmet scores since testing began and took them into account.

Phew. Till next year!
