When choosing motocross helmets the main criterion should be comfort. It is essential that the helmet facilitates driving, especially in a context where the motorcyclist is continuously exposed to greater risks than ordinary bikers. Accomplices both the track, with dust, mud and debris always ready to hit the face, and the upright position that the centaur holds in the saddle.
It is therefore clear that the level of protection must necessarily be high, possibly without making the shell too heavy. The ideal motocross helmet is light, enveloping and breathable.
In particular, the low weight is decisive in terms of safety. In motocross, in fact, the neck is constantly subjected to stress. And if the helmet is too heavy, you risk annoyances and injuries, which can lead to more dangerous situations when you are in the saddle.
It is therefore a good rule to prefer models made with light and resistant materials, such as composite fibers, carbon and glass fibers. Heavier products in thermoplastic, polycarbonate and ABS, which are not suitable for use in races and competitions, but are suitable for amateur use. These are products that usually have good levels of safety, associated with a heavier weight than the fiber counterparts.
The interior of the helmet is another focal point. To ensure driving comfort they should be made of resistant and breathable materials, as well as removable. This is because, although it is not directly in contact with dirt, in motocross the padding tends to get dirty easily. It must therefore be washed thoroughly and frequently.
An often underestimated aspect in motocross helmets is the peak, a characteristic component of this type of helmet and essential for safety on off-road tracks. It has a dual function: it protects from mud and improves visibility, reducing the risk of glare.
Furthermore, for those who face long driving sessions, or participate in competitions, models with an elongated chin guard are recommended. This facilitates air circulation and breathing, which in contexts with high levels of dust and mud can also be difficult. Likewise, the air intakes in both the front and rear of the shell are indispensable.
Finally, if the goal is to purchase a motocross helmet to be used in competitive contexts, the aerodynamics of the structure should also be considered, as well as the presence of a double ring strap.
