AFX FX-39 Dual Sport Helmet 4.4 5 321 321
Great helmet for the price I bought this helmet after having enough of my fulmer adv. Finish is on par and as expected for $100-150 range helmets. Has more of an oval shape which fits me great. Very little to no distortion from the shield, unlike the fulmer which was horrible. The visor seems longer than the fulmer but dose not catch the wind or have any noticeable ill effects up to 80mph. If you weren't prepared the fulmer would nearly rip your head off your shoulders. There is wind noise and its kind of loud but I think that is to be expected of a helmet in this price range, I suggest ear plugs. I like the ratchet strap much more than what I thought I would, I was afraid you would be able to feel a big bulge from it under your chin. July 21, 2014
Good Value and Safety, Poor Finished Quality The fit and finish on this helmet is not nearly as good as you will find in more expensive models, but it's DOT and ECE approved which is really what matters. Pros - Looks pretty cool, especially with a silver reflective visor - Flows air - Not uncomfortable or heavy Cons - Installing the reflective replacement visor I bought was a pain and it felt like I was breaking the brackets trying to put it on. I got it on and it works, but it still makes creaking noises and does not move smoothly up or down. The brackets are cheap plastic so be warned. - The visor does not appear to form a tight seal against the gasket so I'm expecting a bit of water inside the helmet if a monsoon hits. - Some rough edges on the plastic, overall average to poor finished paint and plastics Overall - This is a cheap helmet and you get what you pay for. Plastic feels cheap, but it looks good and meets the important safety standards. I plan on replacing it with an ICON Variant or another higher quality helmet within 6 months. Honestly though for an entry-level dual sport helmet you could do a lot worse than the AFX FX-39, although personally I wish I had upgraded to the AFX FX-41. July 15, 2014
Inexpensive, good-looking, and effective. I've had this helmet for a few months now. Here's what I can tell you from my experience... - Fits a little smaller than expected - Airflow is decent and provides for a fairly quiet ride (when the visor is down) - Feels a tad heavy. When I move my head and stop, I can feel the true weight of the helmet. (Gains some momentum when you move your head quickly!) - The helmet feels, like I rated it above, like an oval. As are most dual sport helmets... - Vision is fairly wide. I don't feel like I'm in a narrow tunnel with it on. I can see out of my peripheral vision just fine. Overall: I'm glad I purchased it. The helmet provides for a comfortable, stable riding experience. I would definitely buy it again. July 14, 2014
Great helmet and features for the price. I couldn't be happier with this helmet.I have a 7 5/8" cranium and ordered an XL and it fits great.Very convenient face shield.I might ad though there is no way I can get a pair of sunglasses on.Still very happy. July 7, 2014
little small this is my first helmet, so i can't really compare it to anything. that being said, the suggested size based on the size hat i wear was a little small, really easy to change the face shield, really easy to remove/put back on the visor. looks better with the visor on in my opinion. also, a bit of a larger helmet overall than i expected it to be July 1, 2014
Fits Like a Shoei at a Fraction of the Cost! I ride a 2004 KLR 650 and was looking for a dual sport helmet. I've always had Shoei helmets in the past and was a bit hesitant to purchase this helmet. After reading quite a few reviews I decided to pull the trigger, and I'm glad I did. Of the helmets I tried on in our local motorcycle shop, XL seemed to give the best fit. I was concerned that the sizing chart for this helmet was going to be incorrect but I ordered the size large (based on my measurements) and as indicated on the fit chart, it fit perfect! As mentioned before, I have had 3 Shoei helmets in the past and the fit of this helmet is nearly identical to a Shoei. If I had to come up with a complaint, the only thing that I would mention is the cheek pad area is a little narrow but I've worn the helmet 6 or 8 times already and they seem to be loosening up. Overall the helmet fits perfect and I'm very pleased with the fit. June 23, 2014
A/C 4 the Noggin This helmet is great for summer heat,flows air like crazy.You do notice more noise but the excellent flow within the lid is worth it.I can't comment on function during cooler weather yet but I can see switching back to a tighter lid as temps fall. June 21, 2014
Nice inexpensive DS helmet. Very good value for a DS helmet. I find the helmet very comfortable with excellent fit. I selected my size (medium) based on the size chart and it was a perfect fit. I also like the ventilation but have not been in extreme heat (90+ degrees) to really put it to the test. June 16, 2014

A shopper asked: This helmet looks really great but I am concerned with my ability to change the visor during a ride. Do you need a screw driver just to change the visor?

Usediv: You need to remove three screws using the supplied plastic screwdriver tool to take the peak off, then remove two rings from either side of the visor to remove it (I found I needed needle nose pliers to do this), before popping the rings back in either side of the new visor then replacing the screws/peak etc. I found I needed to sit down somewhere to do this properly and it would take me about ten minutes. You have to be careful not to lose any bits while you're doing it too. A pain in the *** pretty much. Sep 17, 2012
Reply to Usediv Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nathan L: The screws are plastic so if you crash, it will break off and not get snagged and break your neck. Anyway, the helmet comes with a small plastic screwdriver like tool to remove the beak without destroying the screws which will happen if you use a metal screwdriver. Once you get the beak off, the faceshield is easy to swap. Just FYI, there are black plastic washer things that popped off when I took the beak off and that I nearly lost, but other than that, it's pretty easy and self-explanatory. Sep 18, 2012

PetahPipah: The visor is kind of a pain in the butt unfortunately.... Yes you would need a screwdriver. There's also some small plastic clips you need to take out. So you'd need something tiny to pry those out with. I'm always afraid im going to break them too. You probably don't care for an answer anymore though, seeing you asked 10 months ago i'm sure you've made a decision. It would definitely be a pain to change on the side of the road though... especially in the dark. Mar 13, 2013

Apoclypse: I would not recommend trying to switch visors on the road. The helmet has a few small delicate parts that like to get lost when changing. The replacement visors do not offer as great of a seal as the factory does but it won't kill you. Also if changing the visor, buying the replacement parts for the visor workings is a good idea. They are very inexpensive and it's better to have them and not need them, than need them and not have them. Apr 8, 2013

ctowncat: The visor is pretty difficult to change, they didn't make it easy. There are these circular clips that hold the visor the helmet, but they can easily break. I wouldn't recommend it for someone like yourself who might want to constantly change or alter the visors. May 27, 2012
Reply to ctowncat Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Tachypsychia: I would recommend changing it at home. You could use a quarter to take out the screws, but there is a litttle grommet piece that you might loose on the ground on the side of the road. The mirrored visor was dark, but not too dark for me to ride in at night. YMMV Sep 26, 2012
Reply to Tachypsychia Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Under normal circumstances a "flat-head" or "slotted" screw driver is the method of choice for removing the face shield. On the fly, however, a quarter can be just as effective at removing the screws. Apr 30, 2012

analogtraveler: Changing visors requires a screwdriver or coin, and is a bit fiddly. Try a clear visor with a tinted half visor, they work great. http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/afx-fx-39-half-outer-sun-shield Feb 11, 2013

zman1968: It depends on how wide and square the corner of your glasses are. The helmet padding is designed to hug your cheeks comfortably. I personally use Nike wrap-around (sun)glasses with straight temples, and they are comfortable but snug. If you have regular eyeglasses, I would honestly recommend contact lenses, as helmets properly fitted are desiged to absorb impact energy from the impact point to your helmet. If you go loose enough to comfortably fit eyeglasses, you might be loosening the helmet and working against the protective intention of it. You never want a loose helmet, especially god forbid you take a tumble.

Also, the FX-39 helmets run slightly large, so I had to downsize to a Medium after I purchased my normal large size.

Nathan L: I have a tinted silver mirrored faceshield, so at night I raise the visor and wear clear eye protection glasses so I can actually see. I haven't had any issues, but I do notice that the ear hole in the padding isn't that big and brushes up against my ears. It doesn't really effect the glasses, but I felt obligated to mention that. You never know. On the upside the faceshield is huge on dualsport helmets since they're designed to accomodate goggles if going off road, so getting glasses in there is pretty easy. There's a good amount of airflow too, so your glasses won't fog up too bad either. Hope that helps. Sep 18, 2012

SamA: I have had this for a few weeks and the sunglasses I use are a tiny bit difficult to put on and lift a bit. But it is not too bad. I think you just need to find a good matching sun glass that works.

I have a modular helmet too and putting the glasses on is a breeze on those.

GF: i've tried slipping sunglasses on while wearing the helmet and the grooves tend to keep my glasses up off my nose. There are channels for the arms to slide into the helmet making it easy to put on/take off glasses, but where they sit is slightly uncomfortable for me. May 7, 2011

DLMunson: I dont wear regular glasses, but I can tell you cheap sunglasses with thick plastic frames kind of hurt when putting on, but I would think thin metal frames would be fine. Then again Im still breaking in the thing so it should be ok soon. May 12, 2011

Aexus: Smaller glasses may fit, and there wouldn't be a problem with distance from your glasses to the shield, but the shape of the helmet doesn't seem ideal for glasses. Narrower, less round profile. Jun 6, 2011

A shopper asked: What are the Pros and cons of a matte black finish on the AFX FX-39? Is it true matte black is harder to keep clean and blemishes easier? May 26, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ducatihunter1: That is a bit of a controversial question. Some say it is more difficult to keep clean. As someone who owns a couple of matte black helmets as well as a matte black superbike I would say the finish is no more difficult to KEEP clean than any other helmet. To CLEAN one of these helmets is actually a little bit easier than other helmets since you DO NOT use any chemicals to clean the surface. simply use a warm, wet wash cloth and thats really about it (sometimes some none abrasive soaps to get rid of bugs). no coating it anything like water repellents or solvents. my helmets are kept immaculate. No scrubbing = no scratching. May 26, 2011

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nathan L: Yes, here's a link to the product on Revzilla http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/afx-fx-39-faceshield. I have the silver mirrored faceshield along with the original that the helmet comes with. The mirrored one is okay, but up close you can see it's not make with the best quality. What are you going to do about it though? The helmet comes with a tool to take off the beak and change the faceshield if you want. The screws are plastic so the beak will break off in a crash and won't snag and break your neck. Use the tool on the screws because a metal screwdriver might damage them. Otherwise, swapping is pretty easy. Sep 18, 2012

A shopper asked: this may seem like a silly question, but my question is how hot does it get in the helmet? I am thinking about buying this helmet to use as a bicycle helmet. i have a motorycle and can use it a passenger helmet, but i figure i can use this for riding my bicycle as well. I figure riding my bike i probably wont get faster then 20 or so MPH so i was wondering about the heat in the helmet at a standstill or slow speeds. im not trying to put a sweatbox on my head. i figure nice bike helmets go for about $60+ so why not check out a helmet i can use for both motorycle and bike riding. thanks.

Nathan L: I didn't think it was a silly question until you said you might wear it on a bicycle. I'm a cyclist myself and I would definitely not wear this on my bicycle because it's much heavier than a normal bicycle helmet. Among motorcycle helmets it's not too heavy, but it pales in comparison to any bicycle helmet. But to answer your question, it has pretty good airflow even at low speeds especially with the visor up. I rode with it in 90+ degree weather recently and even at slow urban speeds or at lights the heat never bothered me. Unless you're planning on serious accidents, I wouldn't recommend it for bicycling. I ride a Specialized Allez Compact Sport and a Ducati Monster just FYI. Sep 18, 2012

Usediv: In terms of road motorcycle helmets, this flows a good amount of air and feels relatively cool in hot temps. However, I'd recommend a motocross helmet if you are looking for something that would be used predominantly for a bicycle with occasional motorcycle use. They tend to be cooler and lighter in my opinion (though they don't have the visor). Sep 17, 2012
Reply to Usediv Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Tachypsychia: With the visor up, you'll have no issues with ventilation. At stop lights, I always open it up to breathe better. Moving at any speed is plenty of air flow to keep from over heating even with the visor down. on a scale of one to ten for helmet ventilation this one is definitely a 10 Sep 26, 2012
Reply to Tachypsychia Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
BigE50: This is a light helmet, but it's still much heavier and bulkier than a bicycle helmet. You would be sweaty. The vents are good, but I doubt they are good enough to keep you cool at 20 mph while you are pedalling hard. Feb 27, 2012

Mark3: My second AFX DS helmet (37 & 39), the fit of the 39 is much better being more oval than round but I find the AFX sizing chart completely wrong for my head/face features. My head measures 61cm, upper end of large per AFX, I found though that teh XL is too tight, creates a pressure point after an hour on the forehead, so 2XL which is what I wear in AFX (DS), HJC (dirt & street), and Bell (dirt), Take into consideration if you wear a balaclava etc. Aug 18, 2012

Chris K: The Evoline fits large, as does the AFX FX-39. I would guess that you are the same size, but definitely check the size chart with your head measurement. Dec 22, 2011

Usediv: I found AFX to be true to most other helmet brands' sizing. I wear a SM in Shoei, Arai and Shark and a small was perfect in the AFX-39 also. Sep 17, 2012

755raptor: I'd bet you would be good with a small. The interior lining on the FX-39 is very thin, giving it a slightly larger size feel Dec 27, 2011

Camille M asked: Does the AFX FX-39 Dual Sport Helmet take the Cardo Scala Rider communication system? Is it easy to install the speakers in? Nov 17, 2013

michael b: you will have to use double face tape on the outside to attach and the wires should feed into interior with no problem . I wear this helmet for off road trail riding , its not a good highway helmet , noisy , bill on top creates a lot of wind resistance. The cost of helmet is very affordable BUT its very much entry helmet , if your riding hard better spend more money for higher end Safer helmet Dec 21, 2013

Joseph G: I had the same problem. I took out the cheek pads and placed them in between some heavy stacked text books. Took couple of weeks but worked great. Could also get them wet before wedging in. Will help the reform process. Aug 26, 2013

Kyle H asked: Just got my FX-39 and the fit seems to be horrible. The cheek pads are so narrow that I feel like I am puckering for a kiss. The fit around my head is fine, but the helmet sits too low, and my mouth is just barely above the breath guard, and causes the lens to fog when breathing. What helmets do I need to look for that fit properly? Apr 24, 2014

Eric P: Yes you are not alone on this. I had to take the cheek pads out to make it a better fit. I use it for snowmobile adventures so this may not work for you . I still think it's a great helmet for the price. Eric Apr 25, 2014

A shopper asked: Are the Scott 87 OTG (over the glasses) goggles compatible with this helmet? I mean, will the face shield completely close while wearing these gog's? Feb 16, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ben R: I don't have Scott 87 OTG goggles, but I do have this helmet and I don't think the face shield would close over any goggles at all. You remove the faceshield when you are using goggles.

Keep in mind that the process of getting the faceshield on and off is a hassle and takes at least a few minutes (not seconds). For me, I removed the faceshield completely and just use the helmet with goggles only. I have a different helmet I use when street riding, and I only use this helmet for off-road stuff.

DR350S93: I have OTG goggles and I tried fitting them..they didn't seem to want to fit. Either I sacrifice my goggles or get contacts. I don't want to go blind after getting a rock to the eye, but also don't want to dish out money or contacts. Mar 19, 2012

A shopper asked: Greetings from Turkey,
i have several questions about fx 39. First - my head size is basicly 'm' i measured 57-58 cm. But, i bougth a m sized shark s700 stipple on the internet (which i use now) . It did not fit very well. But i didn't care about it. after 2 months, it became like a 'L' sized helmet. now i can't use it anymore. I'm pretty scared that it happens again. And i don't leave in USA, so it would be a horrible exchanging process, if it does not fit well enough. What do you think which size i need to get ?
Second question - Can i remove the sunshade ? for using the helmet at highspeeds ? Does it work ?
Third one is how fast do you deliver the product to Turkey ?

Lucas F: I have had this helmet for about a year now and I still really enjoy it. I bought a "Large" even though I have a medium/average sized head and haven't had any issues with sizing. The sunshade is removable but while riding 70 mph/ 110kph the sunshade doesn't seem to make a difference. Jun 24, 2014

The area for my head is perfect...but, the helmet sits too low and my mouth is not in line with the breath guard. My mouth is just high enough that It causes me to fog up the lens.

A shopper asked: Early spring / late autumn use. I've seen there are vent blocks and a snow breath guard. Do they work well enough for cold weather riding? Jan 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: The helmet and vents definitely work well for late autumn and early spring riding. It's not quite as refined as many street only helmets overall it is great including even in the winter. It is much more refined and quieter than the 37 which, I put a lot of time in with in cold weather and was great to freezing or slightly below. I put as many as 400 miles in a day with it and it was always fine. Also look into the 41 - that is the most on road oriented of the AFX helmets. But the 39 is excellent too and is my helmet of choice. It has tons of features and is incredible value for the price. Jan 26, 2014
