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.

    White is Right for the Summer

    I've been riding motorcycles since I was 14. Started riding dirt bikes at 55. Soon to be 60. I bought this white helmet to wear it while I practice. I bought some white riding gear to match. It is hot as HECK in Alabama where I ride and race. I usually buy new riding gear for my first race of the season. This helmet is just for practicing. It was priced right and right on time. Bought a new set of goggles too. They were on sale as well. It was hard to pass on a great priced helmet in a brand I trust plus a great and inexpensive set of goggles. Shoot and with R/M Cash getting put in the kitty why buy from the other sites when R/M has the best price matching policy too. I am very happy now and always have been when doing business with Braaap!

    What i expected for the price.

    Have not worn on a ride yet, still saying goodbye to the old helmet. At first appearance the visor seems longer than what I'm used to. Looks and feels good though, wearing around house that is.

    LS2 Subverter MX470 Helmet

    clinton in WI


    I measured my head and I fit in the center of the medium range. It was so small I almost couldn't get it on my head. I had to double check to make sure it wasn't a youth model. I returned for a large, we'll see how that goes. Return service was very good, I just called and answered a couple questions and RM sent me a free return shipping label. The only bad thing is that the medium was on back order for almost a month and now my replacement large is on back order for another month. Looks like it is good quality, the visor looks a little cheap.
