I don’t do enough Motocross stuff on these blogs. Its an unintentional bias that comes from being a road bike rider but I promise I don’t mean to do it. So I decided to switch things up and take a look at a helmet that I’ve seen is quite popular in the shop and I’ve sold a few of them to customers myself. I’ve gone and looked up information on The Wulf Scepter Motocross Helmet so that I can talk to you all a bit more about it and so that I’m also a bit more prepared to personally talk to customers about it in the shop.
Wulf Sport are a fairly well known brand. They provide great quality gear, meeting safety standards and providing great quality but they also keep the price tags low. Which is quite important to our MX customers as if not for them, their only other choices would be the more expensive brands such as O’Neal, Sidi and maybe a few others depending on what item of gear they’re after. So being able to provide quality gear at an affordable price is why they’re so popular. But despite the budget price tags of their stuff- their products are not cheaply made.
The shell of the Wulf Sceptre is made from a Polycarbonate composite. If the fancy, science-y names don’t give it away, it means its made from a composition of plastics designed to withstand impact and keep the weight of the helmet low, even the Large size helmet weighs only 1380g. A lot of people would turn their nose up at hearing the shell of a helmet is essentially made from plastic but there’s really no need to cross it off the list of candidates to be your helmet. Its strong stuff and has passed all the tests to meet EU safety standards- its even been ACU Gold Approved, meaning its so safe that its legal to wear on tracks.
The strap of the helmet features a quick release buckle system, a fastening method I personally love as it makes getting the helmet off just that bit quicker. The sides of the aperture at the front have grooves on them and the back of the helmet is shaped to form a groove as well which forms a channel that goes from the eyes and around the back of the head. This is designed to keep the strap of your Motocross Goggles secure and help from slipping out of place up or down.
Motocross can be messy business, lots of dirt getting flung everywhere if you’re riding in a more wild environment and the riders can definitely work up a sweat. For that reason, the Wulf Sceptre was designed with a fully removable liner and cheek pads for easy washing and keeping your helmet fresh. For £43.89 you’re getting yourself a safe helmet that provides all the basics that an MXer could possibly need without spending a fortune. It even comes in a few different colours too so you can stand out and match the gear or bike you already have. Everyone who has chosen the Wulf Sceptre as their helmet has been more than happy with it, the reviews from customers speak for themselves as the helmet has a 5/5 on it’s Feefo ratings.
So if you’re looking for a new Motocross helmet, don’t want to fork out a fortune but still want to be be protected and look great you should definitely give the Wulf Sceptre Motocross helmet a try. It’s just one of the great products from the Wulfsport Range though, so have a look around and see what they have to offer you.
Thanks for reading everyone! Until next time!
