Motocross helmets provide the ultimate in off-road racing headgear. Designed for the rigors of motocross, these helmets appeal to everyone from professional racers to casual trail riders. Why? Quite simply, there’s no such thing as too much protection when it comes to your head – especially when you’re riding an off-road powerhouse.
So what really separates a high-end motocross helmet from the rest? Traditional helmet testing is held to strict standards, but it is wholly inadequate when considering the accidents that are faced in actual environments. While most helmets provide sufficient protection from direct impacts, most accidents actually involve an angular impact, resulting in rotational energy being transferred directly to the brain, leading to head trauma. High-end motocross helmets consider this in their engineering, helping to reduce to energy transfer to the brain by absorbing it using proven technology. Furthermore, when a helmet must be removed by emergency personnel after an accident, motocross helmets often have removable cheek pads to ease removal and reduce the likelihood of further injury.
But there is more to motocross helmets than listing off safety features or DOT/Snell certifications. The tightknit feeling that the MX community has established has created a unique flair and culture not duplicated anywhere else. As a result, these helmets display a visual appearance that blends the raw energy and refined focus characteristic of the sport.
Of course, everyone has their own style, and that’s why you’ll find literally hundreds of options to choose from. When it comes to motocross helmets, you’ve got to discover something that fits your personal expression as well as it fits your head. Will you find one here that fulfills both requirements?

Bought mine on closeout and cant believe how good it feels. Would highly recommend Bell helmets for there years in the industry and for having high quality products with great graphics. I love the design and flinch every time I catch a limb or rock because I don't want it to chipRead All Reviews

I bought this when replacing my HJC CL-X6 after landing on top of my head. I decided I would splurge since the X6 was so hot. The helmet is the best. I do not sweat like I did in any of my past CL-X helmets and it weighs nothing. It was pricey even when on close out, but it is well worth it. This is coming from someone who would buy last years CL-X helmets on close out for less than 100 bucks.Read All Reviews

This helmet replaced my CL-X5 one. This seems to be hotter than the 5. I sweat a lot more in this one, but I had a slow speed get off while side hilling on a deer trail and pogoed down the hill coming to a stop when landing square on my head. The top of my head was sore for a week and my neck was tweaked for a month, but I did walk away so the helmet did as it should.Read All Reviews
