Hey, everyone! I’ve been going through the recent arrivals on our online store and a brand I’m not very familiar with came up. Just1 Motocross Helmets and Motocross Goggles were appearing before me and their gear looks awesome and looks to be made to a really great quality. So I decided I had to take a closer look at them and dedicate this blog entry to the Just1 J32 Pro Motocross Helmet.
If we go by looks alone, the Just1 J32 Motocross Helmet is already a winner. It’s a really cool looking helmet withe an aggressive style and looks as awesome as it is functional, especially in the Rockstar graphic. Usually anything with an energy drink branding on it like Monster or RedBull is a bit of a turn off for me but the Rockstar helmet is simple yet flashy at the same time and it grows on me the more I look at it. It does cost a little bit more, being officially licensed by Rockstar and everything though- the Just1 J32 Pro Rave Helmet costs just £139.99 whereas the Just1 J32 Pro Rockstar £149.99
The Shell is made of a high quality thermoplastic. It never sounds too impressive saying something is made out of plastic and it does cause people to change their minds when they discover a helmet is made out of the stuff. But don’t let it dissuade you from getting the helmet you want, the thermoplastics used in making motorcycle helmet shells is though stuff designed to disperse impact forces.
As long as you’re buying from licensed retailer, like us here at Ghostbikes, you can rest assured you’re buying a helmet that meets or exceeds the ECE 22.05 requirements. Meaning they’ve all passed the safety standards for the UK, even the ones with thermoplastic shells. If they were no good, they’d fail the tests. This helmet is even ACU Gold approved, making it so safe that it’s legal for use on tracks. The helmet only weight 1260g in a medium, which is actually really good for a helmet with a Thermoplastic shell.
The J32 has nice big air vents to allow plenty of air through the helmet and to keep the wearer cool and they’ve got mesh in them to keep things like debris or insects from getting in the helmet too.
The padding inside the Just1 J32 Pro is soft, comfortable and fully removable. This makes the padding easy to wash so you can keep your helmet fresh after a rough day off road. Just pop it all out, wash it in warm water in the sink, let it air dry completely and them pop it back in. It’s like your helmet is new all over again.
The padding even features a J.1.E.R. Emergency Cheek Pad Removal System, so if you do ever get into a bad accident, paramedics can pull out the padding and remove the helmet easily. For added safety the helmet has a neck brace ready profile. That means the collar of the helmet is shaped so that it can be comfortably used with a neck brace and will assist in protecting your neck.
If you’re of a smaller head size or shopping for a younger rider- the Just1 J32 Pro is also available in kids helmet sizes in the Moto-X graphic for £99.99 as well as the Rockstar graphic for £119.99, so the little riders don’t have to miss out on a really great quality helmet and they can look just as awesome as the adults.
Thanks for reading, everyone! Until next time!
