5 Best MTB Helmets Reviews

1. BBB Cycling Cycling Helmet Dune

Just like the well-known Giro MTB helmets or the popular MTB helmets from Bontrager and Bell, this black one from BBB Cycling is already one of the renowned brands.

The positive customer reactions as well as the unique final rating of 5 out of 5 stars seems to confirm this, which makes it worthwhile to take a closer look at this black MTB helmet.

The BBB Cycling bicycle helmet – suitable for both men and women – is characterized by a total size of 30 x 20 x 14 cm and a corresponding size of 300 (M).

However, you can still purchase this type of helmet in a standard size S or L as well as in various other design options such as in matt green or matt grey.

The BBB Cycling Dune MIPS 2.0 cycling helmet is also characterized by the unique MIPS system that is reflected in the low back and sides, providing extra protection for the most sensitive parts of the head.

This is further supplemented with no less than 14 ventilation holes that contribute to optimal ventilation during mountain biking.


Removable bracket: The helmet has a removable bracket at the back that is suitable for placing a spot rear light. (Type BLS-147)

Visor: The visor is removable, so that the helmet is not only suitable for mountain biking, but can also be used as a racing bicycle helmet.

Safety: The MIPS system and the lowered back and sides contribute to safety in the event of a fall. This is complemented by the Omicron adjustable fitting system which also contributes to safety, comfort and the ideal fit.


No children: If you are looking for a decent MTB helmet for your son or daughter, this one is not the best recommendation.

2. Fox Racing Speedframe Mips MTB Helmet

Do you do your regular adventurous mountain bike rides? Then solid and functional equipment is not only necessary but also an investment in safety.

For example, the Fox Racing Speedframe MTB bicycle helmet is characterized by the same specific MIPS system as used in the previous product. As a result, the most sensitive areas of the head are optimally protected in the event of a fall.

But it doesn’t stop there, because the Fox Racing helmet is further completed with a 360º fit, a unique removable and 100% washable liner and an excellent three-position valve that does not have to deter even spectacle wearers.

In short, with the Fox Racing MTB helmet, you choose a unique and beautiful open face helmet that is more than worth its money. A look at the online reactions immediately shows a nice average final score of no less than 5 stars.


Quality marks: The MTB helmet has several quality marks ranging from CPSC to EN 1078 and AS/NZS 2063 that show that the helmet contributes to safety.

MIPS system: The characteristic MIPS system contributes to reduced turning forces in the event of a fall and thus guarantees optimal protection.

Ventilation: You enjoy optimal ventilation, which is reflected in integrated ventilation slots at the height of the EPS material.


Price tag: We dare to say that the high price tag may sometimes put a damper on the festivity.

3. Bicycle Helmet with Detachable Visor

The MTB bicycle helmet from KW has a total size of 30 x 20 x 15 cm and corresponds to a size 300 (M/L). This makes it suitable for use by both men and women, which only benefits its ease of use.

The helmet is characterized by a unique high-density polycarbonate housing including EPS foam, so that shocks in the event of a fall can be easily absorbed.

After use, you can easily remove and wash the integrated sponge liner, so that the helmet remains 100% hygienic. All this is further complemented by a magnetically attached visor that is intended to provide protection against sun and/or splashing mud/stones.

When purchasing, the helmet is supplied including a controller so that the taillight indicators can be easily operated. Many customers are convinced of the user-friendliness offered and appreciate the price-quality ratio.


Glasses wearers: This MTB helmet can also be used by glasses wearers without any problems.

Visor: The helmet has a magnetically attached visor that can be easily folded up or – if desired – even removed.

Controller: With the purchase of this MTB helmet, a controller is immediately included with which it is possible to operate the rear light indicators on the helmet.


No children: this helmet could be just a little too big for children.

Price: if you are looking for the MTB helmet with the lowest price, this one is obviously not the best recommendation.

4. Lazer Cycling Helmet MTB Roller

The Lazer Roller MTB cycling helmet is an excellent and 100% approved option for those who prefer not to dig too deep into their pockets.

The helmet is characterized by a safe in-mold construction – which contributes to an overall low weight – and was provided with an integrated MIPS layer.

The 28 existing ventilation openings provide sufficient ventilation during an adventurous trip on the mountain bike. But that is of course not all because the Lazer bicycle helmet also appears to be equipped with an easy to fold up and/remove the visor.

In this way, you protect your eyes against any weather conditions and/or possible splashing mud and stones. If the helmet is just a bit too big, use the TS+ button on the back to adjust the fit to a greater or lesser extent.

In short, a functional and qualitative solution at an affordable price. Although the distinctive features all point in a positive direction, no comments have been posted to date. This makes it quite difficult for us to offer further advice on customer experiences.


Size: the helmet has an adjustable size from 55 to 59 cm and corresponds approximately to a standard size M.

Ventilation: The top and sides of the helmets have no less than 28 ventilation openings that come in handy during a solid mountain bike ride.

Fit system: the well-known Turnfit System (TS+) at the rear of the helmet contributes to achieving an optimal fit.


Too small: For adult men, this helmet might be just a little too small.

5. Nixnix Downhill Full face MTB Helmet

Are you looking for a somewhat atypical full face MTB helmet that can just as well be used during motocross rides? Then we recommend that you take a closer look at the Nixnix Downhill ATB MTB bicycle helmet.

The helmet immediately catches the eye because of its bright orange character with black accents, but can be purchased in many other designs.

By the way, a pair of gloves, a mask and glasses are included with the purchase, which immediately justifies its price tag. The XL MTB helmet – which is also suitable for unisex use – is characterized by a sturdy ABS shell with various ventilation openings that contribute to reliable cooling.

The helmet has an adjustable head circumference of 58 to 60 cm, but can – after a thorough search – be purchased in other sizes. As a novice mountain biker or crosser, this MTB helmet is a true feast for the eyes.

However, no comments have been posted yet. Don’t be put off by this right away because in terms of price-quality this is really a winner.
