Fly Racing Trekker Conceal Adventure Motorcycle Helmet
Fly Racing Trekker adventure motorcycle helmet in Kryptek Conceal colorway.

Just as many adventure bikes have beaks inspired by the high front fenders of dirtbikes and rally racebikes, most adventure helmets have peaks inspired by those found on dirtbike helmets. Sometimes called a visor, the peak helps block flying debris, errant branches, and sun glare. Fly Racing makes a wide range of dirtbike helmets, while its Trekker helmet is aimed at adventure and dual-sport riders who spend time both on and off the pavement.

The DOT/ECE-approved Trekker has a lightweight polymer shell, a wide, goggle-friendly eyeport, and a dual-density EPS liner that provides progressive impact protection. The optically correct, UV-resistant clear faceshield has coatings to prevent fogging up and to resist scratches, and its mechanism has several detents for partial or fully open positions. The shield can be removed with a Phillips-head screwdriver (a dime or penny will work in a pinch) to accommodate goggles, but I had no issue wearing goggles with the faceshield in the fully open position. The Trekker also has a drop-down sunshield with an anti-fog coating, and tinted and iridium faceshields are available.

The Trekker has closable vents in the chinbar, atop the forehead, and on the back, and the EPS liner has ventilation channels to pull hot air through the inside of the helmet. Overall, the helmet provides decent airflow, and a removable chin curtain blocks some dust and cool air. Enveloping the rider’s head is a removable, adjustable, washable antimicrobial SpaSoft lining that’s very comfortable. There are speaker pockets for installing a helmet communicator, and the Trekker secures with a double D-ring chin strap.

The Trekker has all the features I want in an adventure helmet at a very affordable price point, and it’s reasonably light (the size medium I tested weighs 3 lb, 10 ounces). The faceshield and sunshield mechanisms work well, even after getting heavily powdered with fine silt. The peak can be removed for more of a street style helmet, but I didn’t have any issues with the peak at highway speeds. And I’m a big fan of the new-for-2024 Kryptek Conceal graphic, especially in the Slate/Black/Red colorway shown.

The Fly Racing Trekker adventure motorcycle helmet is available in sizes XS-2XL in solid colors for $189.95 and the Kryptek Conceal graphic (available in four colorways) for $219.95.
