Top Pick

Cheap Full Face Moto Helmet

Typhoon’s Snell M2015 Approved

This is our top and overall best cheap full-face motorcycle helmet that falls under the budget of $100. It is not the cheapest, but it is not the most expensive either. It’s just in the middle, in terms of pricing. And tops almost every other helmet on this list in terms of safety features, with its Snell certification.

Cheap Full Face Motorcycle Helmets Under 50

To kick things off, let’s take a look at some of the cheap full face motorcycle helmets that fall under the $50 budget range.

1. Triangle Full Face Matte Street Bike Motorcycle Helmet [DOT]

If your head size is in between L and XL, then this helmet is going to fit you perfectly.

There’s a problem with this helmet though, that there is a slight wind noise when you get up to 75, but it goes away after the 90mph mark.

Other than that, it’s a great helmet with DOT approved certification, and is very comfortable.

It’s a full-face helmet so you get the best protection you can get out of a motorcycle helmet, even at this cheap under $50 price range. On top of that, as mentioned earlier, it’s a comfortable helmet.

Believe me, the comfort and the full-face helmets don’t go along very well, so I’d say get this bad boy asap if your head size is between L and XL.

2. TCMT Adult Carbon Fiber Black Full Face Motorcycle Helmet DOT

Some people may feel that a tight or snug helmet is a bad thing? Those who’ve never worn a helmet before think that especially like I did too when I got my first helmet, but here, read a review from a customer sharing their experience about the snugness of the helmet for their daughter.

Loved that the helmet had a feminine look for our young granddaughter. She thought it felt tight initially but explained to her a snug fit was necessary for safety and she soon forgot about the fit.

There is one problem with the helmet — the top vent will not open — and there are two air vents in front as well as above as well as below the face shield., but the top air vent won’t open.

It’s a minor issue and shouldn’t tamper with any safety features of the helmet.

3. WOW Motorcycle Full Face Helmet Street Bike BMX MX

This cheap full-face motorcycle helmet would look a bit strange if adults wear it, but is perfectly fine for kids and young children to wear, and in fact, is a positive because it’ll be easier to see on the roads and would help with the visibility of the helmet and your kid.

It’s a DOT Approved cheap full face motorcycle helmet under 50 dollars.

4. 1STorm Motorcycle Street Bike Dual Visor/Sun Visor Full Face Helmet

This green color motorcycle helmet is a great choice if you’re the type of person who gives importance to visibility while riding, so everyone can see you and don’t hit you on the road.

Not everyone cares about visibility, instead most people just try to look cool, which ends up with bad consequences.

During long rides you will never suffer neck pains because the helmet is very light weight.

It works really well, the outer shell is really good, the chin strap works great, and the dual visor is also awesome.

5. Triangle Full Face Street Bike Motorcycle Helmets [DOT]

On top of being lightweight, this cheap full face motorcycle helmet is very comfortable and sturdy. 

The design is awesome too!

The matte finish and integrated bag are cool, and the quick release chin strap is nice.

Here’s what a customer had to say about it:

For the price, I couldn’t pass this up. First off it’s super lightweight. I wear a Bell helmet on the reg and when I put this on wow what a difference. Also, I noticed after I put it on it felt very roomie. I do wish that it was easier to find a different face shield because I would wear this more if I could find one that was blacked out. For the price of this, you really can’t beat it.

Cheap Full Face Motorcycle Helmets Under 100

Now lets see a few more cheap full face motorcycle helmets that fall under the category or the budget of under $100.

1. GLX GX15 Full Face Motorcycle Street Bike Helmet with Internal Sun Visor DOT Approved

Despite its decent ventilation, it remains warm throughout the winter. 

It will likely be scratched because of its single-pane plastic construction. 

With a single-paned windscreen, you can’t open it much at all. It will fog up.

With those features and the interior sunglasses visor, this is one of the best helmets I have seen for the money.

With the chin strap taking some getting used to when it comes to removing the helmet, the helmet is definitely light for a full-face helmet.

2. TRIANGLE Matte Black Full Face Lightweight, Aerodynamic, Comfortable Street Bike Motorcycle Helmet

Great quick-release chin straps with good foam and good airflow inside the top facepiece to keep your head cool. It’s worth the low price.

You will never have an easier time removing and reinstalling the padding for cleaning, than with this helmet.

Furthermore, it has the safety as well as good ventilation that I find crucial in this helmet.

3. Typhoon’s Snell M2015 Approved Full Face Motorcycle Helmet

With the Snell helmet at such an affordable price, it’s hard to find a better value for money.

You should test out a helmet at a local cycling shop to find the best fit, and then come back and order the right size of this helmet. That is if you do not already know what your current head size is.

Honestly, for the price, this helmet is an amazing helmet! 

Considering this is Snell m2015 approved at this price, looking anywhere else would be pointless. 

Plus the free smoke lenses make any need be met, day or night. It fits super comfortably and has great ventilation.

4. Fuel Helmets’ SH-FF0016 Full Face Helmet

Here’s how this helmet saved a person’s life!

The comment is going to be a bit graphic but such is life when riding motorcycles. This helmet saved my life when I flew off my motorcycle and hit the road hard. The helmet also prevented me from looking like Quasimodo when I hit a pile of rocks after I slide off the road. Before the accident, I loved the helmet because of the look, comfort, and I was able to use my peripheral vision. And now, I’m totally grateful and thank God for the helmet for allowing me to keep my brain, teeth, and face intact instead of being all over the road. Buying this helmet was among the best things I’ve done.

This is why we always here at Lets Go For A Ride say that you should get a full-face helmet, they save lives! Whereas if this person had a half helmet or no helmet at all, imagine what could’ve been his fate!

About the helmet, I don’t think anything else needs to be said about it. It’s already proven to save someone’s life, why not get it, and maybe it’ll come in handy for you as well at some point! 😉

5. ILM Full Face Motorcycle Street Bike Helmet

This helmet has good points, and it has some drawbacks.

You don’t have to look through the porthole due to the visor’s exceptionally wide field of view. 

There’s a decent flow of air with the three forward vents. Low speeds of 15-30 mph will keep fogging to a minimum, if not avoid it altogether. 

With such a spacious chin bar, you almost feel like you have too much room for a mic boom. If you use a sena, you have plenty of room for one. 

You get the clear shield with the purchase price, which you use in low light, because the dark shield is too dark.

Each visor lock snaps into place with a satisfying click. 

Wearing gloves makes it easy to use the chin strap quick release, but the strap itself will need to be trimmed as it will have too much extra weight.

Cheap Full Face Motorcycle Helmets Under 150

Here are some of the cheap full face motorcycle helmets that you can buy under the $150 budget range.

1. HJC Solid Mens CL-17 Full Face Motorcycle Helmet

Here’s how this HJC helmet saved someone’s life!

A “non-alert” driver pulled out in front of me and I T-Boned her, flying up over the car smashing my head on the car, knocking me out on the way over. I was very lucky to walk away with some serious road rash down my body, a banged-up shoulder, and a concussion.

Everyone please pay attention when driving and always look twice for motorcycles. She could have killed me that day…

Whenever there comes a cheap full face motorcycle helmet that saves someone’s life, we don’t like to say anything about that helmet, praising it, etc., other than sharing that experience someone had with that helmet. Because we believe that experience alone is worth getting that helmet for anyone who’s looking forward to saving their life.

2. Typhoon’s Snell SA2015 Approved Full Face Racing Helmet

This one is our second Snell approved helmet on this list of cheap full face motorcycle helmets.

It either comes in gloss white or a sliver color model, both of which kind of look boring, but they’re great for visibility on the road, we believe. Which is more important than style anyways, if you’re interested in saving yourself from road injuries.

3. Bell Qualifier Full-Face Budget Motorcycle Helmet

My favorite thing about the helmet is the way the vents can be opened and closed. There’s not much to say about the chin strap, it’s pretty standard. There is only one clear visor included in the box, and it can be easily replaced. The frame will allow you to wear your sunglasses just fine.

Despite being fairly light, this full face helmet feels very premium but is actually quite durable and comfortable as well. The visor works well and changes out easily while still remaining comfortable.

A drawback is that it can be a little noisy and uncomfortable for some people after several hours of wearing it.

But then again, this might be an issue with most helmets, especially the full-face helmets on the market.

4. HJC FG-17 Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet

It’s a great and a very comfortable full face motorcycle helmet, and fits snug as well.

If you are wearing it during the Summer in New England, you can see how well the ventilation works!

It may feel hot when you’re in traffic and have to stop on a sunny summer day, but once you start moving again, the vents will start to do their magic and push the hot air out.

It also saved a life and they shared their experience:

Someone dropped a rock on the highway, hitting me on my motorcycle at 65+mph. Went down and suffered major internal injuries + 8 broken bones and was hospitalized for two months. No injuries were related to my head. The helmet protected my head entirely during the slam into the concrete and the 200 yards I went tumbling & sliding after flying off. Helmet fits nice and snug, and stayed in its place. Air flow is nice, but can start whistling at times, but nothing too crazy. Reordered a new one yesterday and can’t wait to get back on the road with 100% confidence in my helmet!

5. LS2 Helmets Full Face Stream Street Helmet

This helmet from LS2 saved at least 2 people’s lives! Let’s hear from them a bit:

This helmet saved my face and my life. I completely totaled my bike and smashed my head into the ground and a few rocks. The helmet did its job and held up just fine.

And here’s the second person’s experience:

Literally saved my life! I was wearing this helmet when I was involved in a head-on collision with a car. There were scuffs and cracks, but I suffered no neck, head, or facial injuries. To illustrate the severity of the collision, I’m in recovery with a broken arm, fractured ribs and pelvis, and a broken femur. So yeah, the helmet really did the job.

Cheap Full Face Motorcycle Helmets Under 200

Finally, here are some cheap full-face helmets under the $200 budget range, and this is the final budget range we’re going to cover in this article, because going above this price point, the helmets won’t really be considered “budget” or “cheap” options anymore.

1. ScorpionEXO EXO-R710 Helmet

Here’s how this helmet saved a person’s life:

Was trapped under a car for about a 1/4 mile at about 60 mph, this helmet supported he weight of the vehicle, and protected my head from the road. Still had to go to the hospital and have a couple surgeries, but this helmet is the only reason I’m alive. And I have absolutely NO scar tissue above the neck!! Scorpion has earned my brand loyalty.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this incident alone is enough for this helmet to be purchased. Which is why we don’t say much about helmets that have proven to save lives. What could be wrong with them? Maybe a bit of discomfort at best? So what, what if it ends up saving your life, you’ll enjoy that discomfort of your helmet that now feels a bit annoying.

2. RaceQuip 273991 Full Face Helmet

If you’re a small guy, around 5’10” and 150lbs, this helmet is going to fit you perfectly in small sizing.

The cheek area is sufficiently protected so that the helmet doesn’t slip all over. The strap can easily be engaged and tightened. Visor is smooth to move, and fogging is not an issue. Even though it looks round and bulky and is heavier than most other options, it is considerably less expensive.

This might be the helmet you’ve been searching for if you’re seeking a comfortable, well-fitting, safety helmet that works and looks good. Despite a few shortcomings, this is a good beginner helmet that is easy to use, lightweight and gives you a lot of features without being over the top. I would recommend it to anyone just starting out.

3. HJC Helmets-824-617 HJC CL-17 Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet

It’s quite a comfortable full face motorcycle helmet that’s affordable or “cheap”, if you want to call it.

It’s great at cutting out wind noise as well, and the visor is clear and useful because of its clarity.

Because on long rides, when you’re late, you don’t want a dark visor in the dark night, do you?

It’s a terrible feeling when you have to lift the visor so you can see more clearly, and then bugs start hitting your face! 😅 Which is why I always wear a helmet with a clear visor, I absolutely hate dark visors now.

4. HJC Helmets CL-17 Full Face Void Street Motorcycle Helmet

This is the same helmet from HJC as the #3 above, but this one has a different and more visible color for an increased visibility on the road so you can avoid accidents and such.

I like this color better though, and I’m sure you will as well.

This helmet has an exceptionally useful feature, in that the plastic piece going over the nose and mouth actually keeps the lens from fogging up.

Unlike some cheap helmets that can be obnoxiously bulky, the shell is thin. 

It would be difficult to remove the padding from this helmet as well as the ventilation caused by it. 

These helmets are fairly lightweight and have vents on both sides that hardly do anything.

5. Biltwell Gringo Full Face Helmet

Here’s how this helmet saved someone’s head, as well as taught them a life-lesson!

I’m not really into helmets. Buddy had one and I tried it on and liked it. First day I got it I went for a ride. First ride ever with a helmet and crashed. Bike slid and I rolled about 15ft. Banged up the knee and ankle only thankfully. It all happened in slo mo. I got up checked myself and was ok. Banged up but ok. I remember feeling like a stuntman lol. I just remember seeing the view from the helmet opening and seeing the world just tumble but feeling so secure if that makes sense. Like during the fall I felt like I was going to be ok. Well I got a few repairs to make on the bike but will definitely be riding with a helmet from now on. Snug fit, feels tight and safe, nice finish.
