Known primarily for their street helmets, HJC’s line of off-road helmets are equally impressive with the FG-MX Axis Helmet representing one of the best deals in the helmet market, period. Sitting at the top of their offerings just behind their RPHA X, the FG-MX is one of the few helmets that manages to take premium features, properly work them into a helmet, and then offer that helmet at a price that’s affordable for nearly every rider.
One of the best features on the helmet is the fiberglass composite shell that forms the backbone of the entire helmet. Not only does this material make the helmet exceptionally strong, but it’s one of the main reasons why the helmet is so light at only 3.3 pounds. Inside the shell, airflow is kept high with HJC’s Advanced Channeling Ventilation System—a unique system of vent channels that circulate air inside the helmet to keep heat and moisture to a minimum.
There’s also a premium SilverCool Plus liner that’s both antimicrobial and moisture wicking so you won’t have to deal with a stinky helmet. All this combines to make the FG-MX very light, compliant with SNELL safety standards, and one of the best values for a helmet that can go up against much more expensive options.
