    Driven by a passion for creating a higher standard, the all-new AR-5 Helmet by Answer Racing brings an unparalleled step forward in safety and value. Never before has a fiberglass helmet been equipped with MIPS technology at such an affordable price.

    Developed by brain surgeons and scientists to reduce forces on the brain, MIPS has revolutionized the way we think about helmet safety. By adding a low friction layer between the helmet and head, MIPS helps to reduce rotational forces on the brain that can occur during angled impacts to the head.

    A refined interior features Cool-Core® technology that aids in evaporative cooling, a dual density EPS liner that offers superior impact absorption and removable/washable cheek pads and helmet liner.
  • Lightweight, Premium, Fiberglass Shell.
  • Removable, Washable, and Replaceable Coolmax™ Moisture wicking liner.
  • Dual density EPS liner.
  • Multiple intake and exhaust ports to keep you cool.
  • MIPS liner in between the comfort foam and the dual density EPS liner.
  • Meets or exceeds DOT safety standards.
  • For proper fit and size measure the circumference of your head 1" above your eyebrows and around the largest portion of the back of your head.

  • MIPS
    MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) is a specialized helmet safety technology that is now being used in the top tier of off road helmets in order to greatly lessen the chances of traumatic brain injury.

    By integrating an engineered low-friction layer into the liner of the helmet, MIPS enables a relative sliding motion between the head and the helmet so angular and rotational impact forces are absorbed and deflected.

    Since most head impacts occur at oblique and unpredictable angles, helmets with MIPS Technology are able to offer better protection than helmets without.

Good helmet for the price. Very light!
It fits well and is very light. I would have given it 5 stars except on the first ride, I clipped a tree branch on top about an inch in diameter and the outer shell popped off above the forehead and it was a pain in the butt to get it back on. Nothing broken, just a little scratch but a whole lot of time getting it back on.

Could Be A 5 Star
I read a review about some parts of the cheek pad falling down and the person exchanged it and the second one had the same issue I didn't understand till I got mine.

The cheek pads have a black plastic tab you can pull on to remove the cheek pads to get the helmet off incase of an accident. This is a great idea but the tabs are just shoved up out of the way between the shell and the liner. My tabs would start to fall down from just ridding I hate to think what they would do if you were mud ridding and they got covered in mud!!!

To fix this I got some heavy duty Velcro stick-on ovals. I cleaned the tabs to remove any oil or wax and stuck the Velcro to the tab facing the fiberglass I then stuck the other side to the Velcro to the one on the tab remove the clear backing and carefully shoved the tab back into place. I then used a butter knife to stick behind the tab to push the other sticky Velcro up against the fiberglass. Now it stays in place and can be pulled out if needed.

Size is dead on but it is more of an semi round shape and I have a true oval head it feels a little tight on my forehead above my eyebrows.

If not for the tab issue I would give it a 5 STAR

Great MIPS helmet for kids
Needed to replace my helmet and wanted something with MIPS that wasn't too pricey and this fit the bill. It's stylish, comfortable, and appears to be good quality.

Good helmet great price
I bought this helmet due to the huge markdown on price. Honestly I was expecting a better helmet. It seems cheap compared to my $300 Bell. It fits good and is lightweight. I just wish the liner was as soft and comfortable as my Bell.

Lightest helmet I've ever worn.
I bought a mens XL and it weighed 1303 grams. It's so light when I got the package delivered I thought the box was empty. After the first hour of riding it was worn in and comfortable. My goggles were centered in the opening which is something I've had problems with on other helmets. I had a lot less fatigue riding because of the light weight and I'd recommend this helmet and I'd buy another one especially if it was on clearance. My $900 Arai street bike helmet is more comfortable so I couldn't give this one 5 stars but the compromise of extra cushion for light weight is worth the sacrifice.

Fits well but poor quality.
I bought my ar1 when i had longer hair and a full beard in a large which fit. I since then have short hair and just a scruff and the large was too loose especially with my proshot go pro mount constantly pulling my helmet down while dirt biking. I really liked the ar1 quality and chose this since it also has mips. Helmet fits good and is really comfortable in the medium.

However as another reviewer stated the adhesive for the chin foam is horrible. The ar1 is made better than the ar5 imo. Also the cheak pad plastic tabs keep popping out from its hiding spots. Pretty disappointed since i havent even hit the trails yet. Just cruising around town on pavement.

How much does this helmet weigh?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 3 Lbs.
Is there any way to get a replacement visor for an Answer AR5 helmet? If not, is there a visor for different model or brand of helmet that would fit?
MAX A L on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not have the replacement visors available for this helmet. However, it looks like Answer Racing sells them so check out their website.
