If you’re considering a helmet on the lower end of the price-scale, you definitely want it to be both comfortable and safe. The Speed & Strength SS1100 helmet ticks both the comfort and safety boxes, and it does so at just over the $100 mark.

The Speed & Strength SS1100 features an aerodynamic shell that cuts through the air very quietly, but still vents a good amount of air. Two large front vents channel air to the forehead and scalp, while a series of exhaust vents at the back allow for warm air to be pulled out. A third vent on the chin bar brings air in the the front of the face and up along the faceshield. Speaking of the faceshield, the SS1100 uses Speed and Strength’s “Lock ‘n Load” pivots that make swapping shields a breeze. When looking through the shield, or at the bottom of the SS1100 it is easy to see the red cheek pads and liner. This is the Cool-Core liner system, which isn’t only visually striking, but also very comfortable and efficient at wicking away moisture so that it can evaporate and be pulled out through the exhaust vents at the back.

One of the biggest selling points of the Speed & Strength SS1100 is the weight. A medium weighs in at only 3 pounds and 4 ounces, making this very light for a helmet that is both DOT and ECE approved. This lightness is very apparent when riding, and adds a lot to the comfort factor.

The Speed & Strength SS1100 is a solid choice for anyone looking for an affordable, no-frills helmet that is comfortable, light and safe.

The Speed and Strength SS1100 62 Motorsports helmet is available in solid colors, as well as a variety of graphics. The 62 Motorsports version shown here is available in Green (pictured), Red, and Black.

The graphics are very high quality for the price.

The excellent Cool-Core lining is fully removable for washing. The SS1100 also features a quick release strap.
