Black/Carbon always looks clean.

Check out this video from Fly Racing, detailing their 2019 lineup. This is some bad MTB & BMX Gear. Moreover, this is the kind of rad video content you normally see over on the BTO Sports YouTube Channel. Roll film:

Ultra-lightweight at 950 grams and constructed from a 12k thermal cured carbon/Kevlar shell. Additionally, the WERX BMX helmet is a purpose-built performer.  With 18 vents to combat hot race days, just add any of the available MTB Hydration Systems to stay cool all day long. Not to mention 5 great color options! Clearly, the WERX helps shave off the seconds when it counts most.

The Fly Racing Werx Imprint MIPS Helmet is the ultimate bicycle full-face helmet on the market today. With over 24 months of development (and racing on the Downhill world circuit), the Fly Werx Imprint MIPS Helmet is specifically designed for bicycle riders that want the pinnacle of MTB protective gear.

What is MIPS?

MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System. It is described as a “slip-plane” technology. This works inside the helmet and is designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts.

Now you are asking yourself “What are rotational forces?” When bike accidents happen, two main types of force – linear and rotational – occur. Most impacts to the head are a combination of both. MIPS helps to combat the rotational impact in these types of accidents.

If you reduce the strains associated with rotational acceleration, then you reduce the risk and severity of brain injuries! Think of MIPS as a little bit of extra safety insurance for your head!

Perhaps the most comfortable MTB helmet out there.

Worn by DH MTB Riders such as Bernard Kerr and BMX ace Barry Nobles, the Fly Werx helmet has a carbon-fiber/Kevlar shell provides maximum strength while giving the helmet a lightweight feel.


Not unlike its predecessor, the popular Werx Rival MIPS Helmet. Clearly, Fly has thought of everything when cobbling these great helmets together… and we are the happy benefactors!

Especially relevant are the wild colors available with this helmet. Sure, the black and the blue are right there for you. But for the daring- Fly Racing put out some real eye-popping options! If you’re looking for Women’s Mountain Bike Helmets (or you just have a crazy 80’s vibe all your own), the hot pink version pictured below is right up your alley!

While the Werx helmets do not come in sizes for youth riders, Fly Racing offers the less expensive default bicycle helmet that still is plenty safe for your young riders!

CL has been blogging it up for BTO Sports since the days when Bob "Hurricane" Hannah ruled the motocross roost. In fact, his guerilla-style coverage of the now-infamous "Massacre at Saddleback" is now considered one of the great MX blogs of all time. Enjoy the blogs, folks- that's the whole idea!
