Harley-Davidson's Lightest Motorcycle Helmets for 2023

February 15, 2023

Motorcycle helmets are one of the most important pieces of equipment standing between you and the road. Along with crucial protection, they also provide important peace of mind so you can enjoy the freedom of the open road.

Thanks to advances in helmet materials, protection and peace of mind no longer has to come with bulk and heft. Whether you’re a casual rider, everyday commuter, or a cross-country adventurer, this guide to our lightest motorcycle helmets across a range of categories can help you find a helmet that helps you get  from A to B without weighing you down.

Our Most Popular Lightweight Motorcycle Helmets

Want to hear what our riders have to say about lightweight motorcycle helmets? The helmets you see below are some of our most popular lightweight helmet options.

Lightweight Half Helmets

The lightest of the light, you might just forget these half helmet options are even there. Show off your love for the Bar & Shield in an ultra-light, sun-shielded half helmet that exudes timeless style. Or opt for a lightweight half helmet that’s equipped with advanced ventilation design to keep you extra cool while weighing in just a couple ounces heavier.

Lightweight Full Face Helmets

To provide the best possible protection, a full-face helmet fits snugly and covers as much as of your head as possible. This means that an overly heavy helmet might not be so comfortable. These lightweight men’s and women’s full-face motorcycle helmets aren’t your ordinary helmets. Find feature-rich designs to go with their innovative construction and choose the lightweight full-face helmet that’s right for you.

Lightest Modular Helmets

Because of the internal mechanisms required to allow for a visor that flips up, modular motorcycle helmets have long been even heavier than their full-face counterparts. But these light modular helmet options are now lighter than many full-face helmets on the market. That means riders can enjoy the convenience and quick-cooling ability of a moveable visor and still remain comfortable during long-distance rides.

With lightweight motorcycle helmets in so many styles, there’s something here to suit the needs of any rider. Want to see for yourself just how our lightest motorcycle helmets feel in person? See where your nearest Harley-Davidson® dealer is, and head to try them out in-person. You might not quite believe how comfortable a helmet can be.
