In the luxury world, the game of who can produce the highest priced helmet is a fun one to play. We are going to take a look at a few of the most expensive motorcycle helmets available to buy on the market. We are not including high priced helmets sold at auctions for charities or fully customized helmets for celebrities. We are looking specifically at large motorcycle helmet brands that manufacture several models of helmets and include a luxury or high-end version model or version of a similar model.
And below we’ll also take a look at a few countries that are well known for their luxury goods, and in this case – luxury motorcycle helmets. Les Ateliers Ruby Schuberth Shoei Arai Bell Les Ateliers Ruby Helmets Les Ateliers Ruby has been producing very high-end helmets upwards into the $1,000 – $2,000 range. Catering to the super-wealthy, they have carefully constructed a premium brand, with a premium price tag.
Just take a look at their Instagram feed and you will see what I’m talking about. Unfortunately, this boutique brand has has gone into liquidation late in December of 2014, and their site is no longer loading…. Schuberth Brand Helmets Shoei Motorcycle Helmets Arai Brand Helmets Motorcycle Helmets by Bell But with all these high price tags one question comes to mind. (Ok a lot more do, but one that warrants asking out loud) Are these high end motorcycle helmets safer? So the question comes to mind: Are the more expensive helmets safer than their “cheaper” counterparts? Now I use the word cheaper lightly here, as a $500 Shoei Helmet is obviously cheaper in price than a $1500 Skully Helmet.
Some of us can really geek out on the data, but for simplicities sake, we will not get into most of that in this section. The short answer is “No.” Not after a certain price threshold; increasing the price of a helmet above $200 does not also equate to making that helmet safer. It does increase the features, comfort level (mainly materials used), and the brand equity in the eyes of the consumer.

The economies in operation should be established about towards the first cost. The Diesel motor ship is in lots of means a much cheaper provider as opposed to steam boiler ship, and that is a glutton for oil fuel. It can be worthy of be aware that much larger internal combustion oil ships are getting the ocean every month.
An oil adjust is a thing that every vehicle owner must deal with at a person time or an additional. It could be a plan function, however you might reward from figuring out some facts and history behind motor oil along with the interior combustion motor for which it had been made.
Every motorcyclist knows riding is as much about style as it is transportation. Your motorcycle says a lot about you and your riding but it doesn’t stop there. A motorcyclist’s personal gear contributes to both their style and safety, so picking the right helmet is paramount. Here are some of the most stylish, and technology packed motorcycle helmets on the market. DAVIDA NINETY TWO If ‘Café-Racer Chic’ is your style, then British brand Davida could be for you.
Our pick of the range is the ‘Ninety-Two’, which is designed to provide a close fit providing a quieter ride and less lift at speed. Made with a fiberglass shell reinforced with Kevlar and a detachable leather lined interior trimmed with fabric, the Davida Ninety-Two provides a satisfying blend of modern safety and classic styling Davida Ninety Two, £268.00 from The Cafe Racer DMD THE ROCKET Classic racer’s style has always been an enviable look, and the mid 70’s provided an iconic era for helmet design.
For this reason we can’t help but love DMD’s ‘The Rocket’.A remake of the iconic 70’s shell but with modern safety standards, we think ‘The Rocket’ is a head turning approach to classic racing style with modern safety. DMD The Rocket, £349.00 from The Cafe Racer HEDON HEDONIST Another British brand that simply oozes style; Hedon have raised the bar for Café-Racers everywhere with their ‘Hedonist’ helmet.
With an emphasis on individuality and luxury feel, the Hedonist is available in a wide spectrum of shades and finishes. Hedon ensure a luxury feel by hand crafting each helmet and finishing the look with genuine calf leather trim and their signature logo plaque in copper and brass. Get your order in early, as hand crafting means delivery can take up to 35 days. Hedon Hedonist, £299.00 from Hedon REEVU MSX1 If high speeds are part of your everyday riding then you might be considering a ‘full-face helmet’ design, and you wont want to ignore recent developments from Reevu’s MSX1.
The impressive design boasts both safety and style, which is something that we have come to expect from Italian craftsmanship, but what makes the MSX1 so unique is it’s ability to provide the rider with a “rear view mirror”. The MSX1 features a reflective strip and a transparent rear window made from unbreakable bullet proof material allowing the rider to keep eyes on the road ahead, but with just a momentary glance be able to see what is coming up behind.
This helmet really could save your life. Reevu MSX1, £229.00 from Just Helmets SKULLY AR-1 Self-proclaimed as ‘The World’s Smartest Motorcycle Helmet’, a mere glance at it’s specifications should be enough to impress even the most skeptic of riders. Featuring a ‘Heads-Up-Display’ (HUD) and built in intelligent audio, the rider can get information in line of sight; meaning you never have to take your eyes off the road ahead.
GPS Navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and hands free calling mean that “going off grid” while riding is now a thing of the past and situational awareness is also improved by a wide-angle rear facing camera projected onto the HUD. The AR-1 is finished with an ‘active-visor’ which can be transformed from clear to tinted at the click of a button. With a price tag of $1499.00 the AR-1 is by far the most expensive helmet on our list.
However with the technology it packs in, we think it’s a bargain. Get your order in fast, first shipments have sold out and estimated deliveries for new orders aren’t until July 2015. Skully AR-1, $1499.00 from Skully
