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.

I bought the Airtrix Paradise, and all I can say is WOW!. The first thing I noticed when I pulled this out of the box is the paint is beautiful, and was not expecting this out of a sub $200 helmet. I will not have to send it to Tagger or Troy Lee because this helmet is ready to impress right off the shelf. The sacrifice of ventilation they talk about are unnoticeable and feels like it should cost more even for the compromises they made to make this Moto 9 inspired helmet affordable to the everyday rider. If you want the look and function for the Moto 9 without the Moto 9 price, this is the helmet to order. Very happy, and will be buying more for my whole moto family.Read All Reviews

Great looking. Removable padding. Lightweight. The sizing for these are a little off, I have always worn a large helmet and the large was too big, exchanged for a medium and was good to go. Only reason I give it a 4-star is because the visor is too small. It needs to be wider, it does not block out much sun especially for the desert riders, Ocotillo, Superstition, Glamis, etc.Read All Reviews

Bought this helmet for my son. I spent a fair amount of time looking at different helmets and was very impressed with the technology found in the 6D. Got the red and white and it is very sharp looking - much better in real life. He consistently wears a large and the helmet runs true to size. He loves the fit.Read All Reviews
