The off road helmet, due to the specific design of its chin bar and its anti-mud visor, is one of the most recognisable elements of the biker's attire: Its futuristic and aggressive appearance is simply fantastic. We like them so much that we would collect them...in fact, we already do! We bring you the best brands: Shoei, Arai, Fox, Leatt, Airoh, Shark, Shift... so you can choose the best one for you.
Made of fibre, also known as composite, or thermoplastic resin, off-road helmets must possess a very important property: a great ventilation capacity. This is because the practise of any off-road modality demands a great physical effort, therefore it's of utmost importance to have a helmet with a removable interior. In this way it's much easier to clean after prolonged use. An off-road helmet is not just for motocross or enduro, but you can also practise supermoto with it. This speciality combines concrete with dirt and an off-road helmet is the most suitable one to avoid dust and dirt getting in, as well as for improved ventilation compared to a road helmet.
As regards safety and functionality, you have to pay attention to the fasteners: there are those with double ring, micrometric and quick type. Also, the brands are starting to incorporate emergency quick release systems where, in the event of a serious fall, the helmet can be safely removed by the emergency staff.
And if we talk about colours, we're talking variety. The offroad helmets don't just come in a wide range of colours, from black to white passing through KTM orange, but they also have simply spectacular and magical graphics. And talking about magic, it's the magicians like Carioli, Villopoto or Stewart that make us thrill on the world's motocross circuits and a helmet with their graphics is a small gem that would be the envy of many. We also have race graphics with the green of Monster, the yellow of Rockstar or the red/white of Wild Wolf.
We're aware that the purchase of a helmet is not a decision to be taken lightly, so we always advise you to carefully check which size fits you best and provides good visibility, an aspect where the goggles also play a vital role. Each manufacturer has a different way of designing the shell, such that they fit better or worse to our ergonomics, so the best thing is to try various different sizes. And at Motocard you'll find all of them, even the exceptional large sizes and models for children, without forgetting the specific designs for her. And the spares! For if you want to change a visor or incorporate a breath guard.
