    You're probably familiar with the independent testing carried out by SHARP, the Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Programme, "a scheme to help motorcyclists make an informed choice when buying a helmet" and the Australian version, CRASH, "Consumer Rating and Assessment of Safety Helmets." Bottom line, it makes sense to restrict one's choice of helmet to those that have the highest safety rating. Why wouldn't you?

    Here's a list of 5 Star rated motorcycle helmets which are available in Thailand as of January 2019. Please feel free to add to the list.

    - There is a low correlation between price and safety rating.
