The Dual Sport ADV riding sect of motorcycling has been a-boomin' the past decade and as a result, motorcycle helmet manufacturers have been rolling out hybrid-style helmets to meet the needs of these riders. The AFX FX 37 DS has been a great entry-level option for dual sport newcomers since its inception in early 2009.
For a motorcycle helmet at a very reasonable price point, the FX37 is not short of features. Built with composite polyalloy, the aerodynamic shell is complemented by a super-wide peripheral shield that can be removed for open face or goggled riding. Nine points of ventilation translates to a gale force of airflow that will keep your head and face cool. Inside, the guts are removable and washable, and made with a hypo-allergenic anti-microbial nylon.
Remember, it's an entry-level AFX helmet. You won't see the same features or construction as an XD-3 or a Hornet DS, but if you're looking for something to get you going in the dual sport world, the FX-37 is a great place to start.
