AFX FX-37 Dual Sport Helmet


In the motorcycle industry, you typically have to dig hard and deep to find anything really interesting to quack about. Mix in a little shitty economy on top of that and you have to put on your archeologist's gear to come up with cool artifacts to write home about. That is why I nearly fell off my chair when the national Sales Manager from AFX pulled up to my desk today and plopped down their new "Dual Sport" Helmet for me to check out. The guy was obviously well briefed by his probably very sexy Korean secretary about what Motostrano does and doesn't do before visiting us to present what isn't a Dual Sport helmet at all, but a really good and really affordable Supermoto helmet.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the AFX FX-37 Dual Sport Helmet. We're calling it the AFX FX-37 Supermoto Helmet though.

Lift the shield up for uncluttered viewing both straight, left and right.

Very light weight, typical AFX. Very inexpensive, at just $114.00, another typical AFX characteristic and in this case we're willing to throw out the "how much is your head worth" diatribe. It's been proven over and over again that price doesn't equal level of safety. Comfortable too! That's right, this helmet is comfortable.

It's a DS helmet not a supermoto helmet. No such thing as a supermoto helmet. Get over the supermoto fad.
