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.

Fit is spot on for me, style is subjective but I think this is one of the best looking low buck helmet out there. I could not find mentioned anywhere if they use different sized shells for the various sizes offered. I run a small, and the exterior looks less pumpkin head than other small helmets used. I suspect they have more than one shell size. Outside of looks, this helps with reducing the amount of leverage the helmet would put on the neck in the event of a torsional type impact. Pads have held up well, and not packed out like other helmets used. Ventilation is good relative to the price point too. The only issue I have had is that the button which holds the extra chin strap from flopping around lasted all of 2 rides. It is plastic, and simply gave up the ghost right away. No other issues after several months of continuous use. Pads don't seem to funk up as quickly as others. Perhaps that is a product of better ventilation, or maybe they are made from a material that holds odor less than others I have tried. Don't know, but I like it. If I were looking for one feature that I don't think should raise the price much (unlike carbon construction or 6D discs, etc.) I would like to see a ratcheting style chin strap with a quick release pull. Nitpicking for the price point though. All things considered, I would get this again unless jumping up significantly in price.Read All Reviews

I measured my head and went off the chart listed and the helmet was waaayyy to small. I went up one size and it's still tight but better a little snug than loose so I'm keeping it. very light, good styling. good buy for the price, if I was a more serious rider I'd definitely consider stepping up to a name brand but for what I'm doing this should be perfectRead All Reviews
