I have loved mountain biking ever since growing up in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. I love downhill, dirt jumping, and free-riding.
When it comes to biking, either mountain biking or motorbiking, your safety is paramount. Wearing a helmet is the best way to ensure your safety in the case of a crash. Full-face helmets are the best safety options out there as they protect the face and jaw as well as the head. One of the most common causes of concussions is when a person’s jaws bang together during a crash. Wearing a full-face helmet greatly reduces the chances of getting a concussion or serious head injury by providing extra protection around the face and jaw. Retro helmets provide riders with style as well as safety. I’ve got together a list of the 20 best retro and vintage full-face helmets. There’s a good range of prices and styles and I’m sure you’ll find one that’s perfect for you.

Torc Unisex Helmet

The Torc Unisex Helmet is one of the most popular premium retro full-face helmets out there. With a fiberglass tri-composite shell, front chin vents, and an exhaust vent, it combines comfort, style, and safety. It’s not surprising that the Torc Unisex Helmet regularly tops the list of best retro full-face helmets on the market. 

Biltwell Gringo

The Biltwell Gringo is one of the most stylish retro full-face helmets out there. With over 10 snazzy color options, from Silver Mega Flake to Copper, you’ll have no trouble finding a style that suits you. Plus, with the Biltwell Gringo, you don’t have to sacrifice safety for style and it conforms to every safety standard out there.

Bell Bullitt

Bell has one of the best reputations when it comes to making helmets and their Bullitt is no different. It meets every safety standard and its features, including a genuine leather interior, give it a competitive edge over its competition. If you’re looking for a premium, high-quality vintage helmet, the Bell Bullitt is the helmet for you.

VCOROS Unisex Helmet

The VCOROS Unisex Helmet is a solid retro full-face with an even better price. With two color options and 4 size options, you’ll be able to get one that’s perfect for you. The VCOROS Unisex looks good, surpasses safety standards and is one of the most reasonably priced retro helmets on this list. If you’re looking to budget then look no further.

CRG Sports Helmet

The CRG Sports Helmet is another solid, affordable retro full-face helmet. It has more color and size options than the VCOROS and its fiberglass shell makes it relatively lightweight. With its aggressive design, the CRG Sports Helmet is perfect for riders who want to combine style, safety, and savings.

NENKI Helmet with Mask

The NENKI helmet is one of the cheapest helmets on this list, making it ideal for riders who are on a budget. Unlike the other full-face helmets, the NENKI comes with a face mask that doesn’t provide the same level of protection. The fiberglass shell meets all safety standards and the unique patriot star design gives the NENKI a nice individual flair.
