The 509 Tactical Helmet is born from a desire to offer industry-leading protection at an affordable price. The absolute best value out there, it goes beyond the basics with a lightweight precise fit, durable polycarbonate outer shell, and revolutionary features like neck brace compatibility. A removable cold weather breathbox and adjustable ventilation adapt to any weather. And like our highest-end helmets, it pairs perfectly with 509 goggles for a seamless fit that maximizes performance.
The Tactical helmet meets or exceeds DOT & ECE 2205 safety certification standards. It features an innovative dual density, interlocking EPS foam liner that provides top crash protection in the event of an accident. The front chin area of the helmet is protected by a specially designed expanded polyurethane chin insert that provides front impact protection. The outer shell is made of specially designed thermoplastic for maximum shell strength with minimal weight.
In addition to its safety accolades, performance was a key focus during the development process. Innovative aerodynamic channels run across the entire contour of the helmet. These channels are integrated directly into shell and direct adequate air flow into the specially designed vent scoops. The Tactical helmet features integrated vent scoops that provide necessary ventilation to keep you comfortable when riding. And for those cold days, snap in the included cold weather breath box. The unique aerodynamic visor features a locking-top center mount that holds the visor in place and prevents unwanted visor movement.
The Tactical was designed with two key fit metrics in mind: Rider fit & Goggle fit. First, we created a custom interior EPS matched with a premium removable liner. The Tactical is available in 6 sizes from XS-2XL. These 6 sizes are carefully designed across 2 outer shell molds. This provides a precision fit, while minimizing overall helmet circumference. The neck brace ready, contoured shell base provides a comfortable, yet snug feel when putting the helmet on. When the helmet is fully in place it provides an unmatched comfort fit that prevents unwanted helmet movement. The eyeport of the Tactical helmet was carefully crafted to fit our 509 goggles perfectly, further improving our world famous “509 helmet & goggle combo” fit. The Tactical helmet & 509 brand goggles are two product designed to fit and perform at the highest level when used in combination.
