As a BMX and dirt biker, you are probably one of the most casual riders in the world of mountain biking. You move your bike stylishly through skate parks and over dirt jumps, practice breathtaking tricks and fly metres high? It's not uncommon for you to take a particularly hard fall, because if you want to go high, you can also fall low. For this reason it is important to protect your head sufficiently. Such a fall from a dizzying height onto the hard ground of the skate park or the impact on the dirt jump trail can leave serious injuries on your skull. So you should choose a high quality dirt jump helmet or BMX helmet.
The stuff BMX helmets are made of
Helmets for BMX riders and dirt bikers are made of a hard plastic shell and an internal Styrofoam protector. The temples and neck are cut extra deep on these helmets for better protection during side impacts and backward crashes to the back of the head. During various rotational movements for crazy tricks, reliable chin straps keep the helmet on your head. A BMX helmet or dirt jump helmet thus has the perfect hold on your head and does not fly away from you
Many fun athletes like to protect themselves during their rides with a skater helmet. Round bowl, sticker from your favorite skate shop - you know... There's nothing wrong with that,but you should check if the helmet is approved for use on a bike. The speed and the height of the fall on a bike are a bit higher than on a skateboard, so bike helmets can take a bit more punishment.
Cool and comfortable helmets for BMX and dirt bike
Yeah, helmet is uncool. But even more uncool is a busted skull! So wear a helmet. Because firstly, our stylish bowls come in lots of colours, to match your frame colour, to match your shoes, in your favourite colour... there really is loads to choose from. Plus, a BMX helmet is totally comfortable if you take a few minutes to find the right helmet when you buy it. Some half-shell helmets do not have a pull system with which you can adjust the helmet to your head. With these helmets but then pads in different thicknesses are supplied, or you can buy them separately. So these helmets fit like a glove and do not interfere with your tricks. Simply measure your head circumference with a tape measure, and with the result you can filter the helmets on BMO by centimeters and see at a glance which ones fit you. Especially if you're heading out to practice new tricks, you'll also want to wrap up a little thicker. We've got all sorts of bicycle protectors in our online store to protect your back or legs.
