5 Tips For Buying Cheap Motorcycle Helmets Online

Aug 9, 2008
If you are in the market for a new motorcycle helmet then this is the article for you. I live, eat, sleep and breathe motorcycles of all shapes and sizes and as such I have had the chance to learn a few tips and tricks about being able to save money on the gear.

Tip 1:

You can save a TON of money by buying online but getting the fit right can be difficult. I would suggest that you browse the helmet selections at the motorcycle shop to find the "fit" and "size" that you like and then go shopping online for it. Helmet fit is too important to your long term comfort and satisfaction with your helmet.

This tip only applies to noobs as most seasoned riders already know what size they take in a number of brands. At the very least make sure you measure your head and pay attention to the sizing charts for the brand of helmet you are interested in buying. Don't just check a generic sizing chart...go to the website of the manufacturer and check your measurements against their chart. Believe me, buying a helmet online is worth the effort.

Tip 2:

Once you have found a suitable helmet and you know what size you need then browse online at Ebay. In most cases you can save at least 20-30% online than you will versus a motorcycle shop and in many cases it will be even more than that. You can often buy a more expensive motorcycle helmet at cheap motorcycle helmets prices if you shop wisely.

In fact you can save so much money buying cheap motorcycle helmets online that you could probably afford to have more than one. Cool.

Tip 3:

Be armed with information! In many cases if you can save even more money on motorcycle helmets if they are last seasons colors or the racer that represents that brand has changed colors or changed teams. Last years models are typically every bit as hot and groundbreaking to most of us as the latest and greatest but they are even more attractive when you can buy them at cheap motorcycle helmets prices.

Tip 4:

Search the web for motorcycle helmet reviews and get more opinions on the particular motorcycle helmet that you are interested in. It is worthwhile to invest a small amount of time to make sure their aren't any hidden quirks or weird nuances that show themselves a few months down the road of ownership. Even cheap motorcycle helmets are worth investing a small amount of time researching.

Tip 5:

Last but not least, even though we are all in favor or buying cheap motorcycle helmets, buy the highest quality helmet you can afford. You don't have a $50 dollar brain and you shouldn't trust your brain to a $50 dollar helmet. Make sure your helmet carries DOT certification and SNELL where possible as these ensure a certain level of quality in that helmet. Cheap Motorcycle Helmets are great but you still want a quality motorcycle helmet that will do it's job if necessary.

I could go on but I am sure you are anxious to start your research so I will let you go. Be well and keep the shiny side up so you won't need that helmet for anything other than to keep your hair in place.
