My old HJC MX helmet…

Posted: September 19, 2011 in Gear Reviews, Safety

Gotta love the 90's look...

Despite looking a bit goofy with its 90’s Troy Lee decals this old HJC dirt helmet gets lots of use on my KLR. For around town riding I ditch the goggles and just use wide Oakley sunglasses. I like the ventilation and visor for sunny warm days. I don’t need much noise or weather protection for my city riding. For dirt/gravel roads the googles provide excellent dust protection and work well enough on the inevitable highway sections to get anywhere interesting. This helmet was cheap when I bought it 10yrs+ ago and has more than paid for itself with all the use I’ve gotten out of it. Considering its age everything is holding up well – including the interior fabric. Most importantly it fits me well and is comfortable for all day rides and tours.

You don’t need to pay a fortune to get a decent helmet.
