Comfort and aerodynamics are obviously paramount when evaluating products for this category, as anything that can disturb you while riding would be too dangerous to consider. That's precisely how Oigo's No Drag Mach 5 nabbed the number one spot. Shoei's 2.0 also earns high marks for those considerations, as it's manufactured by one of the most respected helmet brands in the industry. In between those two you'll find a model by Joe Rocket that isn't quite as sleek as either, but that provides an exceptional amount of storage for bikers that like to keep their machines tuned up during long trips, and want to have a lot of little pockets for tools, pins, patch kits, and extra repair gear.
The TMS Back Kit was a nice option for its aluminum shell and aerodynamic design, but availability issues necessitated its removal. The Axo Commuter kept a spot on our list thanks to its ability to house an entire helmet in its main compartment, but it fell all the way from number five to number 10 due to both an influx of superior models to the current ranking and to the cheapness of materials used in its construction.
