Wearing a helmet is very important, we at shifting gears always advice and recommend you to wear a full face helmet at all times when you’re riding. You helmet is a projection of your attitude towards motorcycling and yourself. Your helmet defines you. These days we are spoilt for choices with the number of helmet options we have. We came across many radical helmets that not even look insane but also meet safety standards. (at least that’s what the manufacturers claim). Here’s a list of 10 helmets that we think stood out from the rest.
Star Wars Storm-trooper motorcycle helmets: Oh we love this one. Star wars Stormtrooper helmet. We don’t believe this is DOT approved as it definitely has obstructed vision. But if you’re still willing to spend on it, you can order it online.
Batman motorcycle helmet: This helmet just has a small cosmetic change, but looks superb. If you already have a black painted motorcycle, this is the lid for you! It is DOT approved. Just try not to go crime fighting. Leave that to the cops. Batman nananananananana Batman! You can order it from this link
