MSR’s latest addition to its gear lineup is the 2012 X-Pedition helmet, an off-road Dual Sport lid, which offers numerous safety features for an affordable price (suggested MSRP is $139.95). The helmet is made of advanced poly-alloy plastic that’s aerodynamically shaped. A scratch-resistant shield protects the rider’s eyes from harmful UV rays, but it still can be removed for open-face riding or the addition of goggles. Vents and a removable mesh liner round out comfort features. The X-Pedition helmet meets DOT and ECE requirements.
