MSR Xpedition LX Helmet

The MSR Xpedition LX helmet is identical to the standard Xpedition helmet but with some very cool upgrades. The aerodynamic shape, high mount/no lift visor and clear shield make this the perfect helmet for dual sport riding, adventure touring or even full off-roading. UTV drivers can also enjoy this helmet eliminating the need for goggles. Dual density EPS liner helps absorb both large and small impacts. A highly developed ventilation system consists of two adjustable intake ports and eight large exhaust ports help keep you cool in the hottest conditions.

  • Removable/washable liner is made of wicking and anti-microbial materials
  • Comes with fog free shield
  • Sculptured, dual density, EPS impact absorbing liner 
  • Optically correct, compound curved shield is scratch resistant
  • Shield can be removed to allow open face riding or goggle use
  • Visor can be removed and shield retained using included hardware
  • Fog free, clear, light smoke, dark smoke and mirrored replacement shields available
  • Weight: 3.85 lbs, 1745 grams (size medium)
  • Meets or exceeds the ECE 22-05 safety standard

Great looking Helmet at a great price
I come from a pure dirt bike background and recently transitioned to road as I can't physically ride off-road anymore with my back issues, so I was looking for a helmet that had the look, feel and utility of an off-road helmet. When I came across this MSR, I definitely gave it a second look as I've worn quite a bit of their gear over the years. I've always been satisfied with their gear, plus also, Malcolm Smith, right? IMO, this helmet delivered on what I was looking for.

Pros:
First off, this helmet looks great. I chose the Hi Viz color scheme and I continuously receive compliments on its looks. The graphic design has a good flow without having too much going on. The physical shape of the helmet is fairly aggressive and compliments the graphics.

When it comes to weight, it feels light and thankfully doesn't ever really start to feel like some helmets can after a while, like they're dragging your head down.

I love the adjustable visor. It's one of the things I really missed from my dirt bike helmet. It's nice to be able to block the direct sunlight when you dip your head. The leading edge resembles the front fender on my 1200 GS, so it's got that going for it as well.

This helmet has a nice wide view, making it easier to see in your peripheral when turning your head for lane changes. The visor's shape is also to my liking as it leaves a clear center field of view while it's in the raised position, but curves down on both sides helping to block some of the wind, which is nice a slower speeds.

It gets nice and quiet with the visor closed, as it makes a solid seal with the gasket that encircles the face opening. There is a piece of looks like lycra stretched across the bottom front part of the mouth, which also helps to reduce wind noise.

It comes with a visor removal conversion kit if you ever wanna ditch the sunshade and run a more street look.

The inside padding is fully removable and protected by 3M Scotchguard as well as an AEGIS microbe shield, which is supposed to help keep the funk at bay.

(Possible)Cons:
Helmet runs a little smaller than the HJCs I've worn in the past, and I have always like their fit for my head. It's not too much smaller, and I've gotten used to how it feels.The cheek pads are a bit thick, but those seem to have broken in a bit as well, although I would not mind some that are a bit thinner.

As many vents as this helmet has, I was hoping for more airflow than I feel at speed. Also, the vent slides don't have a detent to help keep them in the open position and can easily slide closed just by handling the helmet.

The button for the hanging part of the strap on the D-ring is in the worst place. It literally blocks the entire opening of the D-ring making threading of the strap with gloves an impossible task. I'll have to order a quick disconnect, which I'd rather have anyway, and cut the button off.

Summary:
Did I mention how attractive this helmet is? I don't want to make this helmet sound bad. I really like it, especially considering its 170$ price tag. I recommend it if you're looking at a helmet from the adventure/enduro line without dropping too much. There are components that clearly identify it as a more affordable choice, but they don't give the feeling that the helmet is cheap. It feels well constructed and I plan on making it my main helmet, due to the hi viz, lightweight, wide view and quietness of the helmet.

DOT approved at a good price
I've had this helmet for about two weeks and I while I can't brag about it, I can't knock it either. It is a DOT approved helmet at a good price. The noise level is fine. The shield is easy to operate. Ventilation easy to locate and adjust on the move. It's a bit tight getting over my ears but fits snugly while on. Down sides are that it is difficult to wear glasses with it. The glasses will rise up due to the design of the cheek pads; will need a tinted shield if you want comfort there. The visor catches a lot of air at highway speeds; but it is nice for blocking sun on these fall days.

Does it have ear cups deep enough for a helmet comm system?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2015
What is a high mount/no lift visor and clear shield? This just confused me. The visor does open on this model right? And if it does, is it an adjustable visor (or just full open or closed)?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The visor (roost/sun gaurd over helmet opening) is designed in such a way to lessen lift at highway speeds. I don't know how effective this is. The visor is also completely removable.
The shield (clear eye protection that seals the helmet opening) does open and has three positions: closed, 1/3 open, open. At the open setting it still covers about half an inch of the opening and is noticeable though not distracting in my opinion. To use goggles you may need to remove the shield.
Does MSR Expedition LX has a Sun visor ?

A shopper on Oct 22, 2015
