Dirt Bike Helmets
Your Dirt Bike Helmet is quite possibly the most important piece of equipment in your gear bag as it’s protecting a very important organ in your body – your brain. We explain below how to ensure you get a proper fitting helmet with the latest in safety technology. Aside from fitment, riders also pay attention to dirt bike helmet variables such as color, weight and venting. You’ll notice a vast selection of motocross helmets in all sorts of different color schemes. Helmets are available in plain colors, and vibrant patterns which have become popular in today’s motocross world. Helmet weight can vary amongst manufacturer, along with venting. Both of these are important for the motocross racer, and typically separate the lower and higher price point helmets.
Dirt Bike Helmet Sizing
When buying a new motocross helmet, it’s crucial the helmet fit’s properly to enable the helmet to protect you as best as possible. A loose fitting helmet will jump and twist around while you’re riding. Not only will this cause a distraction, but if a crash were to occur, the helmet could be positioned incorrectly on your head potentially causing the helmet to be less effective. Conversely, if the helmet is too tight, you’ll have a headache in about 3 minutes and immediately regret your decision of not measuring your head. The proper fit is a snug fit that offers equally distributed pressure around the entire top of your head. You’ll know if it’s too tight, but keep in mind that cheek pads will loosen up over time so you should feel an ample amount of cheek pressure when the helmet is new. It’s also important to note that not every dirt bike helmet will fit every head, regardless of the size. Most dirt bike helmets are shaped to fit the standard head shape – not too round, but not a football.

When measuring your head for the proper dirt bike helmet, it’s best to find someone to help you measure with a soft measuring tape. The goal is to find the longest circumference around your head and have someone measure it for you – it’s easier and more accurate. The longest part of your head is typically an half an inch above your eye brow to the middle of the back of your head. This is about the spot where a hat would rest on your head. You can then use the size charts on our website to determine the correct size helmet. Again, any questions or concerns, contact us, as we’re here to help!
Dirt Bike Helmet Technology
Dirt bike helmets have also come a long way from a technology aspect in recent years with new advancements from MIPS and 6D Helmets. Mips Technology for example is a new system that allows the helmet to slide or rotate relative to the head. This helps lessen the impact of a crash. 6D helmets has a new system patented system called ODS which stands for “Omni-Directional-Suspension”. This system achieves a similar result to MIPS, but with different engineering. Furthermore, whether you get a 6D, MIPS, or not, you can rest assured most of our other helmets are both snell and DOT approved – meaning that they meet those legal and safety specifications.
