50 Coolest Motorcycle Helmets of 2021

This is not your standard list of custom airbrushed helmets or other super customized, very ridiculously expensive helmets. Those are fun to look at for inspiration, but what’s really the point if it’s nearly impossible to get one for yourself? 

Instead, we collected the Top 50 Cool Motorcycle Helmets that you can actually replicate yourself with a few simply helmet accessories. 

Peal-n-stick and you have yourself a unique and cool looking helmet design without taking out a 2nd mortgage to buy it.

Some of these helmets are so cool looking that they don’t even need any addon’s or accessories. Let’s get started!

#50 Icon Shaguar Helmet with Racing Cat Ears

Cat Ears Helmet Accessory Here.

The Icon lineup of helmets has some cool graphics, but none as cool as the paw prints all over the Shaguar Design. 

With an internal drop-down sun shield, this helmet was made for putting in some serious riding time.

And with the addition of a pair of flexible rubber cat ears? Oh yeah, we dig it.

#49 Shark Spartan Motorcycle Helmet with Green Horns

A shark is not a shark without that scary fin on top right?

With this adaptation of the shark fin in the form of a few well placed horn accessories, this shark helmet clean look and green matchy-matchy theme caught our eye on the road.

#48 SENA Momentum Pro Helmet with Built-in Action Camera

At first glance, theres not too much that jumps out of the new SENA helmets. Until you look closer and see the integrated helmet cam on top. 

No more silly go-pro placements all over the place trying to avoid adding wind drag and neck pain. 

And this is SENA, so the built in Bluetooth communications are top notch too.

#47 Simpson Ghost Bandit Carbon Fiber Helmet

Carbon fiber has a sleek and sexy appeal to it, besides being stronger and lighter that common helmet materials.  

And when Simpson designs a helmet with this aggressive forehead ripple effect, we take notice. 

The Ghost Bandit will be forever one of my personal favorites.

#46 Shark X-drak Versatile Motorcycle Helmet

Shark has been pioneering its way into the hyrbid helmet space with remove-able chin guards and almost ATV functionality in their motorcycle helmets. 

The interchange-able parts and pieces on this helmet makes it easy to customize and call your own. Very cool indeed.

#45 Crown Princess SHOEI Motorcycle Helmet

“To a biker girl, her helmet is her CROWN.”

This popular quote in the motorcycle world gets visualized and made into reality with the addition of an actual princess crown accessory that you can add right on top. 

And SHOEI is the princess helmet brand anyways, right?

#44 Icon Airmada Opacity Helmet w/ Pigtail Hair Accessories

Colors, colors, colors!  Icons helmets are bold and bright with awesome designs like this one, ‘Opacity‘. 

So why not add a pigtail hair helmet accessory to the rear and continue that amazing color scheme down to the rest of your outfit?

You simply can’t wear anything boring with a helmet like this on your noggin.

#43 Biltwell Lanesplitter Motorcycle Helmet

The complete opposite of bright colors, this matte black ‘lanesplitter’ helmet is a designs dream. 

It’s the embodiment of less is more. 

Very cool in my book. (And on my list!)

#42 Rezzer Punisher Flip-up Modular Motorcycle Helmet

This new spin on a classic modular helmet by Rezzer combines and actual DOT rated helmet with a cool punisher style face shield.

Something that most custom guys are unable to do with all that extra molding and painting.

#41 HJC Monster Mike ‘Wazowski’ Helmet

The single eye on top (not pictured) of this HJC graphic helmet looks awesome when leaned forward in more of a racing position. 

With HJC, you’re getting a comfortable fit and a day-to-day riding helmet with all the coolness of the Monster’s Movie character added on the shell.

#40 Icon Chantilly Motorcycle Helmet

We will forever want to color in the lines on this epic black and white skull pattern on the ICON Chantilly.

It’s spurred an entire category of ‘sharpie-helmet’ lookalikes with custom motorcycle helmet makers using a sharpie to make that helmet stand out from the crowded parking lot.

#39 Bell Bullit Motorcycle Helmet

The Bell bullit took on the cafe racer crowd a few years back and has been out front since. 

The modern spin and clean style of this helmet will be the center piece of ‘Gentlemens Rides’ for a long, long time. 

Very cool and classy.

#38 White Predator Motorcycle Helmet

There’s a predator out on them streets, and he’s on the prowl. 

This design probably has 1st place for the most fake-knock-off’s available on Ebay or Etsy. 

Be sure to get one that’s base model at least started with a decent rated helmet.

#37 HJC RPHA Monster Energy Motorcycle Helmet

“If you’re smoking in this helmet, you’d better be on fire.”

Monster Energy fuels or passions and our motorsports addictions. 

It’s only fitting seeing the mashup between the 2 iconic brands for an awesome looking motorcycle helmet.

#36 AGV Light-Mode Motorcycle Helmet

Adding a Lightmode Kit to your helmet increases you road visibility by about 100x. 

And adding one to a futuristic design of the AGV increases your coolness factor by another 100x.

That’s a lot of upgrades.

#35 Bell Qualifier Purple LED “MotoKitty” Motorcycle Helmet

Now here is a combination of an EL wire kit and a set of stick-on Cat Ears to light up your night rides. 

Bells quality brand makes a clean pallet for adding on such accessories to make it your very own.

#34 Harley Davidson Street Motorcycle Helmet

Harley is not known for making any of their own helmets, but rather adding their logo onto models (helmet models, eyes on the helmet). 

But when you love a brand, you put-that-shit-on-everything, right?

#33 Icon Airflite Synthwave Motorcycle Helmet

The Airflite model Icon expands the front visor all the way down in front of the chinbar. This unusual looks creates some fun and cool looking helmet designs!

It also helps with wind and other things, maybe. 

But we likes it 🙂

#32 AGV Pista Motorcycle Helmet with Tiny Horns

Heshey drops-style horns added onto an AGV Pista Helmet make for a fun daily rider helmet. 

With  bluetooth addon by Pactalk, this blacked out helmet is sure to fit nearly any outfit. 

As long as it’s mostly black.

#31 SS4100 Modular Motorcycle Helmet

The lines on the Speed and Strength Modular helmet almost hide the fact that its a flip up helmet. 

You don’t see many modular’s out their with a coolness factor so high that it hits a top 50 list, but this one sure does. 

Hat tip to SS for this one.

#30 Fury Bunny Icon Airmada Motorcycle Helmet

Little Bunnies like to ride motorcycles too right? 

With a creative touch and a little gorrila glue, you can add just about any tiny rhinestone or gem to the surface of a helmet to give it a unique look. 

There are a bunch of them out there, but not as cool as those eyes and ears on this Icon.

#29 HJC Iron Man Motorcycle Helmet

Tony Stark himself would approve of this look. Out of all the Marvel characters HJC has been rolling out, the famous “Iron-Man Helmet” is one of the most popular. 

Certainly one of the coolest helmets you can buy off the shelf. 

Recently added to the popular RHPA model HJC, this helmet get’s full outfits and motorcycles to match.

#28 Shark Spartan ‘Horny’ Motorcycle Helmet

You certainly don’t see that on the shelf of your local parts dealer. 

There are various tutorials on how to make or even 3D print horns like this, and with a little glue you are sure to turn as many heads as SoProperStunts did when she hit the streets in this helmet.

#27 Shark Raw Dog-Tag Motorcycle Helmet

The facemask on the Shark Raw gets most of the custom attention on this cool helmet design. Which makes sense, cause you can swap it out with a few clicks.

But the tactical look and feel of this makes for an awesome canvas for a graphic print that looks like it was made out of scrap parts and riveted back together. 

So post apocalypse.

#26 SHOEI ‘Seduction’ Mohawk Motorcycle Helmet

I don’t think that Mohawk accessories will ever fall out of biker fashion. Love them or hate them, you can add reflective decals to them and make your lid shine at night. 

And that Shoei ‘Seduction’ print!? Bring that one back pretty please. 

Mohawk and Decals Here.

#25 Scorpion EXO ST1400 Carbon Motorcycle Helmet

Don’t ride faster than your guardian angel?

Or just wing it and add some cool Devil Horns to your helmet and a DILLIGAF sticker to the back of your motorcycle and your off to the races.

Oh, and that Scorpion helmet is mint.

#24 Simpson MOD Bandit Modular Helmet

Yep, Simpson took there coolest f-ing ever helmet, The Bandit, and made a modular out of it. 

And made it out of sexy carbon fiber.

Shut up and take my $$$$

#23 Scorpion EXO Covert Ratnik Motorcycle Helmet

Is that a paintball helmet?

While that super-cool chin bar design is not going be able to protect your chinny chin chin from a face-smash, it will protect it from a lot of bugs. 

Or paintballs 🙂 

JK, I love it. I’ll take all the cool prints you have in this please.

#22 Icon Airflite Quicksilver Motorcycle Helmet

Silver really does make you go faster.

Or is it makes you look faster? 

Either way, the color-ways on this Icon are so smooth it landed here on our coolest motorcycle helmets list.

#21 HJC ‘Venom’ Motorcycle Helmet

Venom 1.0 was so damn popular that the 2nd iteration of this sweet helmet didn’t take long to roll out quickly after. 

While custom air-brushers have been replicating it for years, this design is so badass that it caught the attention of HJC. 

And we’re glad it did, cause they finally nailed it.

Sssh-nailed it.

#20 LS2 MX471 Xtra Solid Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Helmet

Carbon Fiber all over anyone? 

That’s what LS2 did with this unique helmet design. A blend of off-road, ATV, and dirt transformed this helmet into a work of art. 

A sexxxxy work of art.

#19 LightHawk Icon Variant Motorcycle Helmet

Just when you thought you have seen all the coolest Variant’s by Icon with mohawks,..

Now you get to see them with LED lights! 

You are welcome.

#18 Atlas Fear Ruroc Motorcycle Helmet

New to the seen after their long kickstarter campaign hick-ups (2 years was it?).

Enter Ruroc.

These guys know helmets and they sure do know marketing. If you haven’t seen this ‘Fear’ design by the popular snowsports helmet company, then you haven’t been on the internet for the last 12 months.

#17 Bell Eliminator Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Helmet

Just when I thought that Bell wasn’t about to release anything remotely in the cool-helmet-category any time soon, the Eliminator dropped.

And it is A-mazing.

#16 ‘Rusty Butcher’ Biltwell Lanesplitter Helmet

The Rusty Butcher cult-like brand is still doing burnout after wheelie, after burnout in this badass helmet design from Biltwell.

True to its name, the Lanesplitter inspires every SOA fan to ride it like you stole it.

#15 AGV Pista Motorcycle Helmet

Not much needs to be done (or can really) to the sleek design of the Pista helmet by AGV. 

But if you really want the colors that are not available off the shelf, this design shows that by adding a few decals you can really turn this into your own style. 

Without getting out the airbrush and check-book.

#14 AGV Devil Horns Motorcycle Helmet

Ok, so there is more graphic design on this than custom helmet design, but it’s one of those that are so damn cool how could I not add it here? 

The helmet is pretty cool though, so don’t kill me with all the details. 

And it’s and AGV – so there is that.

#13 Axxis Snake Ponytail Motorcycle Helmet

Every biker has their own style. And if this doesnt prove that, idk what will.

The blondie ponytail attached to the Snake graphic on this Axxis brand helmet made me triple-take this one.

I mean, these girls will put a ponytail on anything!

#12 Rezzer Predator Motorcycle Helmet

Rezzer is the only brand of predator helmet that I would recommend if your really into this look. 

This one throughs it back to the original, more mechanical look of some of the classic films. 

And it’s one cool looking helmet to see on the road too.

#11 Icon Airmada Cat Ear Motorcycle Helmet

Colors, colors, and more colors. 

Adding a pair of Cat Ears to a motorcycle helmet is a statement in itself. But customizing the decals on the front of them to match up with a crazy graphic print like an Icon? 

You are nothing short of supercool.

#10 Ruby Castel St. Roc Motorcycle Helmet

Sitting at the most expensive helmet for so long I can’t remember, the Ruby brand is only for the elite. 

Personally, I’d be afraid to get a bug splat on a helmet like this. 

But it’s just got that magnetism to it that makes me want to buy one anyways.

#9 Smart HJC Helmet with 20B. Bluetooth Communication + 10A Interactive Action Cam

What is it that we love about technology and helmet designs? 

Is it that we have yet to see anyone actually combine a helmet camera, comms, and not get killed by the complexity of mass production (Remember Skully?) 

HJC has got a scratch to your itch with this new smart helmet released at EICMA​​​ this year.

#8 Icon Airflite ‘Inkys’ Motorcycle Helmet

Think that you have seen all the badass helmets out of Icon already? Not by a long shot.

If you are into that sort of thing.

#4 Icon “All eyes on me” Motorcycle Helmet w/bow

The many glowing eyes on this Icon helmet really do have a spooky feel to it when you stare at it for too long. The teeth lined around the visor and chinbar also add to the cool design of this one. 

And when that is not enough for ya? ….

Put a bow on it.

#3 Doughboy ‘Hatlid’ by Mikesprolids

Mikesprolids started making novelty helmets that look like baseball caps a few years ago, and the whole of the industry slapped itself right in the face.

Why didn’t I think of that??

Mike has yet to roll out a DOT-rated version of his cool helmets, but when he does he’ll have a whole new set of riders waving their money at him.

#2 Crystal Kitty Scorpion Motorcycle Helmet

Probably the most complex helmet here, this Scorpion has tiny crystals added to the surface giving it a bling factor of 10/10. 

With a line of spikes between the 2 Cat Ears added on top, and a bluetooth comm accessory – this helmet is what other “MotoKitties” aspire to be. Nice work Kat!

#1 Ruroc Atlas ‘GateKeeper’ Motorcycle Helmet

This new graphic design from Ruroc makes a statement and places it securely on our list as #1. 

The helmet itself has a very cool look to it and when a design of this caliber is added,…. well it’s game over. 

I have been riding on and off the road for about the last 20 years. Having access to 100's of brands of helmets, gear, and bikes - you could say that I have the dream job of a motorcycle junkie.
