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.

Looks good, fits good (check measurement - runs smaller than usual), and fortunately I have not crash tested. Be sure to tighten the visor screws as soon as you get it, maybe a little locktight, because I lost a screw after about a month.Read All Reviews

I bought this on closeout and it looks to be a great buy for a high end helmet. It fits great, its very light and looks to be very well made. I went with the Flo Orange which has a bonus feature that may come in handy in a search and rescue situation, it is BRIGHT!Read All Reviews

so far I like this helmet a lot, looks well made, paint is sharp and crisp. the air pump is now built into the chinbar which is a huge improvement over having it on the bottom in the back. mine is still brand new but it does fit me a little tight on the cheeks. I will probably buy the thinner cheek pads as a size large is to big for me.Read All Reviews
