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.

    Leatt GPX 5.5 V15 Helmet


    Third Leatt Helmet

    Started wearing the Leatt helmets back in 2015 with the Carbon 6.5. The newer helmets have updated padding and are more comfortable compared to the originals with purple inner liner. Perfect helmet if you have neck pain, it is very light and well vented.

    Leatt GPX 5.5 V10 Helmet


    Third Leatt Helmet - Always Improving

    Purchased this as a backup helmet to my original Leatt 6.5 carbon. Same light weight and venting but Leatt improved he comfort with much better interanl padding on the newer line. Composite option comes in a bit cheaper and I could not tell a difference in the slight weight increase, recommended!

    Bell Moto-9 MIPS Helmet

    Jonathan in MA

    Best helmet I've ever owned.

    Pros: Fits good, amazing quality for the price. Cons: hard to put the helmet on with the goggles on the helmet, difficult finding preferred colors to go with older model bikes. To be honest I tried on several different helmets and Bell fit the best.
