Your lid is the one piece of kit you need to ride a your bike. You can go without boots, leathers and whatnot, although we do not recommend that. A bike helmet is one thing you need to take your two wheels for a spin, so you want to make sure you pick a good one. A motorbike helmet should offer full face protection, be comfortable, include a visor and repel rain and moisture for maximum visibility.

Helmets can cost up to the thousands, even more than many motorbikes but who wants to spend that much on a helmet? We’ve taken a look and reviewed some of the best motorbike lids for the best price so you can get quality without compromise and without putting a dent in your wallet or purse.
