Recently I created a post on what a carbon fiber motorcycle helmet is. In that post I teased that I would be creating a follow up article on cheap carbon fiber motorcycle helmets, and that’s exactly what you’ll find here.
What we are going to do is identify some cheap carbon fiber motorcycle helmets, and break that down by helmet type. We’ll focus on full face helmets and open face helmets. I think you’ll be surprised at how affordable a carbon fiber motorcycle helmet really is.
Cheap Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Helmets
If you recall from our previous post, carbon fiber motorcycle helmets are lighter and provide more protection then your standard fiberglass helmet shell.
A common myth is that carbon fiber helmets are expensive. When in reality, you can find cheap carbon fiber motorcycle helmets if you look hard enough. What’s cheap? How about under $300? That’s a pretty good deal for a carbon fiber helmet.
Now granted you’re not going to find the top of the line Arai helmet for under $300, let alone the Corsair X Race Carbon helmet. That one will set you back $3,500 if you’re lucky. But there are inexpensive carbon fiber helmets out there, and there a plenty to choose from.
We’ll take a look at some cheap carbon fiber motorcycle helmets in the following sections.
Beware Of Knock Off Carbon Fiber
Buyer beware! If you start searching for cheap carbon fiber motorcycle helmets, you’ll be tempted by a number of choices under $100.
These are not carbon fiber helmets!
It may be advertised as carbon fiber, but if you dig deep enough you’ll uncover the truth. Many of these supposedly carbon fiber helmets are simply a carbon fiber like design.

So be aware before you purchase. If the price seems to good to be true, it probably is.

For now, let’s focus on the full face carbon fiber helmets. Specifically, the cheap carbon fiber motorcycle helmets you can find in the full face variety. After all, that’s what this post is all about.
