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.

Mind you I haven't used this helmet on a ride yet but I will say first impressions are that this is a well made helmet I will also say its oddly tight but for a large and I have had quite a few helmets in general and I'am always a large but i do beleive it will break in this my second fly my first one i had for like 10 years mostly ride sand so not to many hits taken like dirt until I knock myself out like 6 months ago so i figured it was time for a new brain bucket.Read All Reviews

you get what you pay for applies here. you cant go wrong buying a moto-9 on sale. Its the most comfortable helmet i've ever had and i've had 6-8 helmets over the years. Leading edge technology in safety is hard to put a price on, i guess if you have a $100 cranium you should buy a $100 helmet, otherwise buy a moto-9 on sale. 2 thumbs up.Read All Reviews
