Looking for “Retro Motorcycle Helmets”? No worries, you are at the right place.
If you bought a Ducati Scrambler or Triumph Bonneville, you wouldn’t want to taint the retro look by strapping on a sportbike racing helmet. Still, the priority of any motorcycle rider should be safety and hence it is critical to choose the right retro motorcycle helmet. Since 2013, retro or vintage motorcycles have been making a comeback. The incredible success of the Ducati Scrambler has increased demand for these type of motorcycles. Likewise, helmet manufacturers have taken notice and have released several retro motorcycle helmets.
Motorcycle helmet manufacturers are producing helmets that are safer than the originals from the 60’s while still retaining the look. The lightest helmets today are made of carbon, but they tend to also be the most expensive. The heavier helmets are made of injection molded plastic, but are less expensive. The middle of the field will have a blend of kevlar, carbon, and polycarbonate that will make it both stronger, lighter and easier on the wallet.
