Gmax GM11D Dual Sport Helmet Review and Video

With the increased popularity of adventure riding over the years, the need for a high quality dual-use motorcycle helmet has rose dramatically. The GM11D helmet from Gmax is the ultimate dual-sport helmet for the serious adventure rider. The GM11D has several convenience features that allow it to be quickly converted from a street to pure off-road helmet in a matter of seconds.

The exterior of GM-11D Helmet is constructed of a D.O.T. approved, lightweight thermo-plastic poly alloy outershell. The lightweight shell is optimized to reduce neck strain when worn. The GM-11D features a unique snap-in breath guard system on the jaw piece that allows the breath guard to be easily lifted with the jaw piece. This system prevents the rider from having to un-glove and un-hook the breath guard when wanting to talk or take a drink. The Gmax GM11 also has push to open chin bar designed to be easily opened with one hand, without forcing the rider to take their gloves off. The Gmax GM 11D uses a clear shield visor that can be removed to give the helmet a clean full-face look. The Gmax GM-11D also has a visor that is specifically designed to prevent helmet lift when riding on the highway, by allowing air to flow across the helmet. For goggles, the GM11D has a huge eye port where even the largest goggles can be inserted. The Gmax GM11D come in four solid colors, finished with a high-quality clear coat. These colors include gloss black, flat back, silver, and hi-vis yellow.

The GM 11D Helmet has just as many exciting features inside the helmet as on the outside. The interior of this helmet uses Dupont’s Coolmax fabric to draw sweat and moisture away from the body, keeping the rider dry and comfortable. For ventilation, the Gmax GM 11D Helmet uses Gmax dual exhaust venting system on the top, back, and sides of the helmet to keep a constant stream of comfortable cool air flowing through the helmet. The GM 11D also has an adjustable chin vent designed to keep a cool upward flow of air across the inside of the face shield, helping prevent the fogging of the face shield. Built in speaker pockets also exist on the inside of the helmet which allow for communication devices to be secured tightly, without compromising comfort for the rider. The Gmax GM-11D Helmet also has deluxe ear pads and custom cheek pads to assure that every rider get the fit they want. With its unique hybrid capabilities, the Gmax GM11D helmet is ideal for the riders who are passionate about taking their street bikes off-road.

Klim F4 Geard Off Road Helmet

The Klim F4 Geard Helmet is an upgrade from the original ‘Klim F4’.  Since the release of the original, Klim has been accumulating racer, customer, and dealer feedback as to how they could improve upon their already popular design. The result is the Klim F4 Geard; a combination of some of the most liked features of the F4 and several improved attributes that make the F4 Geard even more comfortable and better fitting than the original. One major difference is the improved ventilation.

 Klim has incorporated deeper air channels in the EPS as well as increasing the size of the intake and exhaust ports. As a part of their all new Ram Air Induction Technology, Klim has given the F4 Geard an astounding 41 air intakes. These air intakes harvest air as it flows over the helmet, and also help to increase the structural integrity of the helmet. The plenum chamber is a pressure chamber network in the EPS that contributes to maximizing the amount of airflow in the helmet. As part of the new design, Klim has made the channels of the plenum chamber deeper; this allows an overall greater bandwidth of air to pass through the EPS to the rider’s head.

Another note-worthy enhancement for the Klim F4 Geard is the improved comfort liner. The comfort liner now has air perforations which contribute to overall air circulation. The comfort liner is also moisture wicking and works in conjunction with the WINDSTOPPER liner. The windstopper liner can be easily snapped onto the comfort liner in colder weather, and will allow moisture to be moved away from the head while still preventing air from coming in direct contact with the head.  The windstopper is small and easy to store when not in use.

The shell of the Klim F4 Geard has been made with a zonal fiber select construction that consists of Aerospace fiberglass, Carbon Fiber, and Kevlar. This construction makes for a tough, durable shell, and an overall safer helmet.  Some other new features for the F4 Geard include: removable cheek pads, a spare visor and visor bolt, breath deflector, and a non-intrusive eye port that broadens the rider’s field of vision. The F4 Geard comes with a deluxe, nylon carrying bag, and replacement parts are available. The F4 Geard helmet exceeds SNELL M2010 and US DOT standards.

Bell Moto 9 Helmet: “Hello Moto”

Moto 9 Tilt


For Motocross, Supercross, and Arenacross, The Bell Moto 9 is a great choice if you’re looking for a high end, off-road helmet. The Moto 9 is an upgrade from the Moto 8 with plenty of new features. First, the shell shape has been completely redesigned. Whereas the Moto 8 used molded plastic on the back of the shell for ventilation, the Moto 9 has everything already integrated into the shell. Manufactured using Bell’s “TriMatrix Shell Construction”, the shell of the Moto9 is composed of a Kevlar, Carbon-fiber, and Fiberglass mix; making it strong, sturdy, and lightweight.

The Moto 9 has been incorporated with Bell’s “Velocity Flow Ventilation System”. This system works in conjunction with the visor peak to create optimum air circulation. While riding, air is harvested underneath the visor and directed into vents at the top of the helmet, which is then directed to the top of the head, as well as the temples. The visor peak is a fly bridge visor with tabs that can be hand adjusted to change the visor height. The chin bar has a large center intake vent with a mesh screen and foam mesh to keep out dirt. There is also a ventilated roost guard. The rear of the helmet has several exhaust vents that will do a great job of pushing warm air out of the helmet. There are static vents at the base of the helmet as well.

The interior of the Bell Moto 9 is composed of Bell’s “X-Static Silver Lining”. This lining is removable, and made of a durable, moisture wicking fabric that will be sure to last. The cheek pads are attached using Bell’s “Magnefusion Magnetic System”. This system makes it very easy to remove the pads; which is a definite plus in the event of an emergency. One feature that you won’t find in typical, lower end helmets are the removable chin strap covers. This makes the straps easy to wash and can help keep your helmet fresh. The Moto 9 is compatible with Shock Doctor’s Eject System. This is an airbag system that will go underneath the 3-D crown liner. A small hose will run from the crown of the head to the base of the helmet. Emergency personnel will be able to inflate the air bag with the hose to gradually push the helmet off of the head, applying little to no pressure on the neck.  The chin bar is completely lined with EPS, which will give you extra protection in the event that you have a frontal impact.

Over all, the Bell Moto 9 is without a doubt a premium helmet choice for off-road riders. Popular motocross rider, James Stewart was consulted in the design of the Moto 9, so it definitely has the components that any off-road rider would want or look for in a helmet.
