Hey, everyone! I’m back with another blog entry to once again talk about the MX Force gear! This time it’s to shed a bit of light on the MX Force range of Motocross Helmets because while they’re doing very well in-store, they could use a little more online love. Honestly we should have run out of them by now with how great these things are and for how little we’re selling them.
With prices that range from £29.99 to £39.99 and as much as 61% off the RRP, people may be wondering why we’re willing to go so low on these helmets and what the catch is. It may surprise you to know that there is no catch! It’s literally just stock that we have a lot of and we’re trying to move quickly, so we’ve gone as low as we can on them and you wont find them cheaper anywhere else. You’re getting a motocross helmet worth as much as £83.33 for less than half the price!
ABOUT THE HELMETS
So what are you actually getting when you buy an MX Force Motocross Helmet?
The shape of the shells on the MX Force helmets have been designed for a number of different functions. The sides of the shell are quite smooth for a streamline and aerodynamic shape while also allowing an effective amount of air into the vents for circulation. The aperture at the front of the helmet is also quite large for an MX helmet allowing for a better peripheral field of vision than I’ve seen in many other brands. So, naturally, the MX Force Motocross Helmets work best with the MX Force Motocross Goggles.
The shells of the helmets are made from injection molded thermoplastics that when set produce a tough shell that is capable of dispersing the force of an impact around the outside of the helmet before letting the force travel though into the liners. Which is a simple but great property for protecting your head in an impact.
Beneath the shell the MX Force Helmets have canalized EPS liners. This means that the protective foam inside the helmets have been designed to incorporate channels inside them to maximise the helmets’ ventilation capabilities without sacrificing the helmets’ protective potential.
The comfort liner inside the helmets are plush and comfortable, allowing for a snug but not unpleasant fit on the head which is what we’re looking for in the fit of a good helmet. The comfort liners are moisture wicking to draw sweat and wet away from your head and they’re also removable and washable, so it’s really easy to keep your helmet clean and fresh. They’re kept securely in place with poppers that also make putting the lining back in nice and easy.
The chin of the helmets feature hi-flow mouth vents that keeps fresh air flowing through the front of the helmets. In fact there, depending on the helmet you choose, there are up to 19 intake vents on the front with 7 exhaust vents on the back that allow the hot air to be drawn out. All of these vents work together with the channels in the EPS liner mentioned before to make the MX Force lids some of the best ventilated motocross helmets I’ve seen.
So what are your choices? Rather than dedicate a blog post to each of the MX Force Helmets I’ve kind of blanketed them all into this one entry so I’ll outline the choices we have.
The MX Force MHS39. It’s available in a few different graphics including the Jet, X-1 and plain matt black and the prices range from £29.99 to £34.99. It’s simple shell shape allows it to soar through the wind despite being an ever-so-slightly wider and rounder shape than some others, allowing for a more round-headed rider to fit inside comfortably.
The MX Force Marshall comes in a couple of graphics including the Luster and a plain gloss white and is priced at £34.99. With a slightly more complex looking shell, it’s sure to turn heads, especially in the “Luster” graphic. The sides of the aperture on the from of the helmet and the back of the shell have a groove for the strap of your goggles to seat in to and keep the strap from moving around.
The MX Force Race is available in a couple of graphics, the Neptunus and the Shiver, both priced at £39.99. It’s a nicely streamlined lid with a slightly longer peak that gives this lid a profile like it wants to be moving forward. It also features the groves and channels at the sides of the aperture and around the back of the helmet to keep the strap of your goggles from slipping about.
The MX Force MHM39 is available in a couple of graphics, the Raz-V and a plain white, priced at £34.99. It has a sleek, streamline looking shell clearly designed to cut through the wind while also making use of it, pouring plenty of ventilation through the 17 intakes. It has to be the most breathable helmet of the bunch.
We have a great range of Motocross Helmets here at Ghostbikes.com but the MX Force lids have to be the best value for money that we’ve got. And these prices will only last as long as the stock does, so grab yours fast- we may never see such under-priced helmets for this great level of quality again!
Thanks for reading, everyone. Until next time!
