Introduction

Dual sport helmets are designed to be used both on and off road, incorporating the best design features of both helmet styles. Dual sport motorcycles have been enjoying a surge in popularity in recent years and it shows no sign of abating any time soon. 

In recent years we've seen classically styled scramblers coming back into the mainstream and it seems like the promise of adventure is luring more and more motorcyclists to bikes with at least some off-road ability - so dual sport helmets have been selling like mad. 

These 10 helmets are my personal picks from the best available on eBay in this category. If you think I've missed one or two that should be here please feel free to let me know in the comments, and we'll extend the Top 10 into a Top 11 or 12.

This helmet by Schuberth is popular with long distance riders for a number of reasons. It has a flip-up front allowing excellent airflow when you're not on the highway, the flip-down internal sun visor is far easier to deploy than sunglasses or goggles and the DOT/ECE ratings give peace of mind.
