When looking for the right helmet to buy one thing you should always check is that the helmet meets your local safety standards.
1. Shoei RF-1200
The first full face helmet to make the list for the top rated full face motorcycle helmets in 2017 is The Shoei RF-1200. Shoei helmets have a proven track record for producing very high quality, safe and comfortable helmets. The only draw back with Shoei helmets is they are not the cheapest however we think it is worth spending a little extra on something that could be the difference between life and death. The Shoei RF-1200 is perfect for all motorcycle riders. This helmet weights around 3.5 pounds. Another great thing about this helmet and Shoei helmets in general is that it utilizes modern technology to drastically reduce wind noise which is very important for your hearing. This helmet also meets the dot and snell safety standards.

2. HJC IS-MAX II Modular Motorcycle Helmet
The second helmet to make the list of the top 5 rated full face helmets in 2017 is the HJC IS-MAX 2 Modular helmet. This is also a great helmet for all motorcycle riders. It is considerably cheaper than the Shoei helmet previously mentioned. The HJC-IS Max 2 helmet weighs in at 4 pounds so it is a little heavier than the Shoei helmet. This helmet only appears to meet the DOT safety standards. This helmet comes with a visor which provides 95% UV protection which I think is a great addition especially for those long days spent riding in the sun.
Cons & Pros
-Not too expensive
-Visor provides 95% UV protection
-Meets dot safety standards
-Only meets dot safety standards so may not be suitable for some countries.

3.Bilt Techno 2.0 Bluetooth Helmet
The reason this helmet has made it onto this list is because it has a Bluetooth feature.. This means you can use this helmet to listen to music while you ride, communicate with other people you are riding with through an intercom ( within 400m) and even talk on your mobile phone. This helmet is currently retailing on Amazon for $220. The main drawback to this helmet is that it doesn’t appear to have any safety standards.
4.The Bell Revolver Evo Full Face Helmet
The Bell Revolver Evo is another great full face motorcycle helmet. The helmet is fairly priced and is selling on Amazon for $199 at this point in time. This helmet is fairly light weight weighing 3.5 pounds. One very cool feature this helmet has is an anti fog visor. This is something that is very frustrating with a lot of full face helmets.. When you are sitting in one place they tend to fog up. This helmet also has a ventilation system so you don’t get too hot riding over those summer months.
Cons & Pros
-anti fog visor
-Dot safety approved
-It only meets Dot safety standards so may not be suitable for your country depending on your laws.
