Shoei is the most trusted helmet brand by Australians, according to the 2018 Canstar Blue survey of almost 500 riders.
The customer satisfaction research and ratings business found Shoei topped the ratings for the third year in a row. In 2015, the first year of Canstar Blue ratings, Nolan won and Shoei was a lowly sixth.
The ratings compare motorcycle helmet brands on factors including durability, safety, comfort/fit, ease of cleaning additional non-safety features, style/design, value for money, and overall satisfaction.
Shoei was followed by Arai, AGV, Shark, Bell and Fox.
These were the only brands mentioned as they must receive a minimum of 30 responses to be included in the ratings. Previous ratings have included up to eight different brands.
Canstar Blue says this year’s survey found that durability, vision and comfort/fit are the greatest drivers of satisfaction for consumers.
