DOT German Motorcycle helmets are one of the more popular motorcycle helmets on the road these days. There are many different options available in this style and Amazon is the best place to check out all the different styles, but make sure that the one you wear is adequate for protecting your melon.
Novelty motorcycle helmets, typically, do not provide the necessary protection to keep you from sustaining a serious injury in the event of an accident. They may look good and not be as bulky, but if you land on your head while wearing one, you melon is going to take the impact, not the helmet.
Be wary, there are a lot of novelty helmets for sale on Amazon. If you find a helmet that you like, look through the whole description and the Q&A section to see if there is information on DOT ratings.
DOT German Motorcycle Helmets – Minimum Protection
Only a DOT helmet, one that has been manufactured to meet the standards of the Department of Transportation, provides the minimum level of protection for your melon. They may be a bit more bulky, but the protection they provide is well worth it.
DOT German Black Leather Motorcycle Helmet
Of the German helmets that are available on Amazon, there are two varieties of the German black leather helmets. One is the traditional helmet with the flared sides and back, styled like the helmets worn by soldiers in WWII. This helmet can also be purchased with authentic German style googles, which are a very cool added feature.
DOT German Flat Black Motorcycle Helmet
Another style is the flat black helmet. This helmet comes with a clean, flat finish. This is a great finish as it does not require the helmet to be polished every once in a while as fingerprints and other smudges do not show easily.
DOT German Gloss Black Motorcycle Helmet
The gloss finish German helmet is a much more eye catching helmet, but it does show fingerprints and smudges pretty easily. This adds a little maintenance to the helmet, but the shinny finish may be worth it.
DOT German Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Helmet
There are a few different options for the carbon fiber German helmets. There is the DOT approved helmets, which are pretty sweet, but again they are a bit bulky. There is also a seller on Amazon that sells a carbon fiber helmet that is not DOT approved.
They boast that their helmets are better than DOT as they are stronger and tougher than helmets that meet DOT standards. They are beautiful helmets with really cool and unique carbon fiber patterns. If you are interested in one of these helmets, just make sure you read though the whole listing and learn how safe they are.
DOT German Skullpile Motorcycle Helmet
The German skullpile helmet is one of three German helmets with added graphics. The Skullpile depicts a pile of skulls around the entire helmet. The skulls are white on a flat black background. It is a very simple yet awesome graphic and one to easily catch the eye of a passerby.
DOT German Boneyard Motorcycle Helmet
The other two German helmets that feature a added graphic are the Boneyard helmet, either in red or blue. These are really cool looking helmets featuring a black background with red or blue skulls and other bones. The helmets are completed with a clear gloss finish for added shine and attitude.
Of course all of these helmets are considered half helmets as they do not provide coverage of the lower back of the head.
