The Altitude MX helmet meets or exceeds DOT & ECE 2205 safety certification standards. It features an innovative dual density, interlocking EPS foam liner that provides top crash protection in the event of an accident. The front chin area of the helmet is protected by a specially designed expanded polyurethane chin insert that provides front impact protection. The outer shell is made of specially designed carbon fiber for maximum shell strength with minimal weight.
In addition to its safety accolades, performance was a key focus during the development process. Innovative aerodynamic channels run across the entire contour of the helmet. These channels are integrated directly into the shell and direct adequate air flow into the specially designed vent scoops. The Altitude MX helmet features 6 integrated vent scoops that provide necessary ventilation to keep you comfortable when riding. Overall, the Altitude MX features 8 intake/exhaust vent ports. The unique aerodynamic visor features a locking-top center mount that holds the visor in place and prevents unwanted visor movement.
Additionally the Altitude MX Carbon Fiber features the all-new Fidlock magnetic buckle system. This patented technology used a magnetic mechanical fastener for simple securing of the helmet strap. The buckle and snap are magnetically attracted, creating a high locking force that is much easier to use that a traditional D-ring strap. The Fidlock buckle passes both DOT & ECE standards with its metal to metal connection points when secured.
The Altitude MX was designed with two key fit metrics in mind: Rider fit & Goggle fit. First, we created a custom interior EPS matched with a premium removable liner. The Carbon Fiber Altitude is available in 8 sizes from XS to 4XL (Thermoplastic Altitude MX available in 11 sizes from Youth small to Adult 4XL). These 8 sizes are carefully designed across 4 outer shell molds - our competitors only use 2. This provides a precision fit, while minimizing overall helmet circumference. The neck brace ready, contoured shell base provides a comfortable, yet snug feel when putting the helmet on. When the helmet is fully in place it provides an unmatched comfort fit that prevents unwanted helmet movement. The eyeport of the Altitude MX helmet was carefully crafted to fit our 509 Sinister MX-5 & Dirt Pro goggles perfectly, further improving our world famous 509 helmet & goggle combo fit.
