The HJC FG-X Driven Helmet was definitely designed for all of the gear heads out there. This MX helmet graphic incorporates sprockets, spark plugs, gears and chains in a very bold and artistic design. The HJC FG-X is a middle priced Off-road/motocross helmet that is both SNELL and DOT approved. This helmet comes with the Advanced Channeling Ventilation System and all of the cheek pads for this model are interchangeable to get that custom fit. Also, this helmet has a completely removable and washable liner to help keep things smelling fresh after long hot days on the track.
The FG-X is another fine example of
HJC's efforts to
create helmets with many of the features of the pro level helmets, but at an
affordable price. This lid is constructed using a Kevlar reinforced fiberglass
composite shell and yet somehow the price has been kept under two hundred bucks.
The Kevlar reinforcement has been strategically placed in high impact areas, the
forehead area, both sides of the helmet in the center, and the rear of the
helmet starting near the bottom of the crown. This construction method keeps the
helmet down near 1500 grams. The helmet is available in three solid colors and
three graphics with multiple color options per graphic. To see the color ways in

The FG-X has true pass through ventilation which isn't as common as you might
think in helmets within this pricepoint. There's a total of six intakes
including the main chin vent, two additional chinbar vents, two eyebrow vents,
one top vent, and three exhaust vents to extract that hot humid air. What makes
the ventilation pass through, is this channeling in the dual density eps. Pro
riders Nate Adams and Kyle Chisholm both worked closely with HJC engineers to
create this helmet and there are two areas where it's easy to tell that this
helmet was developed by riders on a track , and not just just engineers in a
lab. The first is the eyeport. Not only do you get a huge field of vision with
this eyeport, but the shape of the opening, the contour of the shell, and the
relationship between the eyeport and the breathguard allow the rider to wear
almost any goggle on the market. The other is the liner. The fit of this helmet
is definitely race snug, yet very comfortable. Even with my long oval headshape,
I could wear this helmet all day no problem. The liner fabric is made using
HJC's Silvercool technology. This material is wicking and antibacterial so your
head stays relatively dry and your helmet won't smell like a raft guide's
personal flotation device. They have also incorporated their new snap system
which is made of a more durable material and is universally positioned, allowing
the wearer to change out the cheekpads to optimize fit.
