How to choose a Motocross helmet

There are many factors when choosing your perfect motocross helmet. Here are a few to consider:

  • Rotational management

    Make sure the helmet is designed with a low-friction layer like a Mips® safety system that’s intended to help reduce rotational force to the head during certain angled impacts.

  • Comfort and fit

    Everyone has their own unique head shape and fit factors. It’s important to consider everything from sizing to retention systems and straps.

  • Ventilation

    This is one of the most important performance factors in a motocross helmet. You want one that effectively channels in cool air with proper vents to control temperature and prevent overheating.

  • Safety certification

    Most motocross helmets available to consumers are required to meet certain safety requirements, but it’s best to double-check that it’s up to date with the latest regulations in your country.

  • Available parts

    We suggest you choose a helmet from a major manufacturer so that it’s easy to order any replacement parts in case you break a visor, snap a buckle or lose a cheek pad.

  • Brand and style

    There are plenty of great choices of motocross helmets available today. Be sure to choose one from a brand you know and trust, with a style that will help get you motivated to ride.
