Premier Helmets

MX off-road retro helmet

This 2017 collection MX ‘retro’ helmet brings 21st century manufacturing, materials and safety standards to a 1970s style shell shape (and other components) as well as graphics that recall the earliest days of MX racing.

The external shell is moulded using DCA fibre, composed of carbon, Dyneema and aramidic fibre mixed with epoxy resin - a mix that “contributes to creating the strong but comfortable structure of the MX.” The internal shell is moulded in varied density EPS to optimise and maximise energy absorption efficiency.
The helmet has three buttons on the top of the shell to which can be added the classic peak (supplied with the helmet), or a long visor (sold separately). A three-button dark visor is also available as an accessory. The inner lining “harmonises with the ‘retro’ style and is made with anti-allergenic, sanitised fabric with synthetic leather finishes. The cheek pads are made with a similar leather, while the retention system of the helmet is equipped with a Double D ring fastener.”
As all other Premier helmets, the MX is homologated to European standard ECE 22-05 and comes in sizes XS to XL. It is available in the new version NX decal Chromed that uses new and innovative chrome decals, which gives the helmet a subtle sheen, but also comes in multi-colour and mono colour versions.
Another technological innovation introduced by Premier in their 2017 collection is chrome based painting, which makes the mass production of silver chrome caps possible.
