Buyers Guide - MX Helmets

Motocross Helmets

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? Yes, you will.

You can’t neglect the increased comfort built in motocross helmets. Demanded by the sport’s finest, these helmets are designed to improve airflow, keeping the helmet interior as cool as possible during long days at the track and through several motos. Today’s helmets are also often equipped with anti-bacterial lining to provide an odorless interior and comfortable fit.

Every helmet is designed with advanced features to enhance the MX experience. Read the product description to find out exactly what is included to make sure you get the attributes you’re looking for.

The next time you hop on your dirt bike at the track, make sure you’re sporting a new motocross helmet. There’s nothing better to feel great, boost your confidence and intimidate your competition than by looking like you mean business – because you do. Check out our incredible selection now and pick out the helmet that matches who you are as a rider.

  • Scorpion VX-R70 Ascend Helmet

    Scorpion VX-R70 Ascend Helmet

    Roger in VA

    A really nice upgrade from my prior helmet

    I was using a low cost HJC helmet (no knock on HJC or the helmet). It didn't have great ventilation and was kind of heavy. As well, the padding was rough? The new VX-R70 feels like a premium upgrade in every way / the difference is $$ is more than justified.

  • Bell Moto-9 MIPS Fasthouse Helmet

    Tarren in CA

    Bell Moto-9, good purchase.

    Once the helmet was "broken in", it is super comfortable and not too hot. In addition to this Bell helmet, I also have a Bell Star which is equally as good.

  • Fly Racing Kinetic Full Speed Helmet

    Fly Racing Kinetic Full Speed Helmet

    Brian in ID

    Nice helmet

    I must admit I was skeptical on purchasing this helmet. I mean $80 for a helmet? Come on.... this thing can't be that great, right? To my pleasant surprise this is actually quite a nice lid! I typically ride street and wear Scorpion, HJC or Shoei. Have had good luck with them all but they don't give them away. When I needed one for riding ATV's I didn't want to break the bank so I looked at better priced lids and this is what I came across. I am very pleased with my purchase! The fit and finish is excellent! It's light weight an appears to be constructed well. This helmet will do all I ask of it and for the price I don't think it can be beat! Fly helmets..... Give one a try! You likely won't be disappointed! Thank you RM ATV for a quality product, fast shipping and a superb price!

  • MSR Mav4 w/MIPS Helmet

    MSR Mav4 w/MIPS Helmet

    Frank in MI

    Awesome value when bought on closeout.

    This helmet is great so far no complaints except sizing chart. I should have sized down, the xl I ended up with fit great at first and is slowly loosening, but that is probably true with all helmets. I have beat this thing with quite a few pine boughs and the matte finish hasn't shown a single scratch. if this one ever wears out or is damaged I would buy another one in a size large, even though my head measured out for an xl.
