Hey, everyone! There’s still a few Just1 items in our new arrivals list so I decided to write an entry on another of their helmets- the Just1 J12 Carbon Motocross Helmet. It’s a great motocross helmet, really sturdy, feather light weight and looks stunning. I thought I’d write an entry on it sooner rather than later since I managed to get some hands-on time with it and since we’ve only got the one on-site here at Ghostbikes HQ, I wanted to take the chance before someone snags such a great helmet for themselves.
So the first thing to note about the Just1 J12 is the shell material. It’s a rigid, full Carbon Fibre shell making the helmet it’s self really light but also really safe. Carbonfibre is some of the most advanced helmet shell material out there. We see it all over the place in the motorsporting world because of it’s light weight and strength, so despite the high price tag Carbon Fibre usually comes with- it’s well worth it for the level of protection it offers.
As well as being able to take more punishment from an accident they also actively protect the rider from getting into accidents in the first place by keeping the helmet light weight and preventing neck strain. Neck strain can lead to distracting headaches and stiff shoulders that can affect your handling, so a well designed motocross helmet such as this will keep you riding more comfortably for longer.
Speaking of comfort, the padding inside the helmet is soft and snug, keeping you cozy inside but it’s also got a couple of features of it’s own. The padding is fully removable- riding off road can be sweaty, muddy business so the padding of your motocross helmet can need washing regularly if you ride regularly. So having the liner be removable makes it much easier to wash and keep it fresh, just wash it in warm water and let it air dry naturally. The fabrics in the padding are also hygienically treated that helps to keep the padding fresher for longer.
The cheek pads also have a safety feature. They have the J.1.E.R Emergency Cheek Pad Removal System so that if you do happen to get into an accident, the cheek pads can be pulled out so that paramedics can easily remove the helmet.
The Just1 J12 Carbon has plenty of air vents, allowing lots of air in to cool the rider but they also have mesh in to keep from getting in as well. The helmet meets ECE 22.05 and is also ACU Gold Approved, so you can wear it on the track. And I should certainly think so if it’s good enough to be used by Team Rockstar Husqvarna.
The Just1 J12 Carbon is available in the Dominator graphic in five colours for £268.08 and the Rockstar graphic for £288.66
Thanks for reading, everyone! Until next time!
