Shopping for Her First Full Face Motorcycle Helmet and Having Problems

Share your opinions about good quality, lightweight helmets


Could you recommend a full face helmet that isn’t heavy? I have been riding as a passenger with my husband for three years and plan to take the MSF Basic RiderCourse and get my own license this spring. I always wear a helmet but mine is not full faced.

I tried a friend’s full face helmet but it was really heavy and hurt my neck. Are all full face helmets like that? Could you recommend one that would be more comfortable?
