Bomb trails long enough and you'll eventually go boom. Sometimes you'll expect it; sometimes you won't. Either way, crashing is a part of riding, so when you buckle your helmet and head out for a rowdy day on singletrack, you want to be wearing a helmet that won't let you down if you lean hard into a corner and unexpectedly find yourself in a cloud of dust looking up the sky. Mavic took safety seriously when designing its Crossmax Pro Helmet, bearing in mind the specific demands of enduro riding and including features you can directly benefit from while you seek out the tackiest lines with your ride crew.
Mavic started by shaping Crossmax Pro to provide coverage on the vulnerable areas of the back of the head while ensuring the helmet remained lightweight and breathable, a goal that was facilitated by ample ventilation throughout. Within the helmet, Mavic helps create a more comfortable fit next to your skin by using its Live Fit technology, which involves a band of plush, adaptable XRD memory foam spanning the front of the helmet. This foam customizes the fit to your head shape, ensuring a secure fit and absorbing trail vibrations and impacts on white-knuckle lines and unavoidable crashes.
Anticipating you'll be grabbing a pair of goggles or at least sunglasses for most rides, Mavic also shaped the helmet and its adjustable visor with eyewear in mind, aiming to achieve a versatile fit with most goggles that will discourage fogging on days when the trails are especially steamy.

- Q & A
"your helmet saved your life"
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Well, I only got to wear my new Mavic helmet about 4 times before it did what it was supposed to do. On those 4 rides I found this helmet to have a great fit, it did not move around or jostle while riding; it was a secure yet comfortable fit. On my 4th ride I had the unfortunate chance to sink my front wheel into a not noticeable quicksand pit, abruptly stopping my bike and throwing me over the bars directly onto my face. The forehead of the helmet cracked. The only negative was that the visor came off and cut my face clean through rom my nose to my mouth. The trauma surgeon saw the helmet which was flown in with me and stated that it had surely saved my life. Wear a helmet kids! This is a good one. Comfortable, looks good, great price, and has been proven to save lives!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used this helmet the first month of the riding season! It has impeccable breathability, styling, and protection. I took a nasty fall hitting jumps on a downhill trail in Park City (should have had a full face helmet). I Immediately flew over the handlebars right to me head. From the fall I suffered only a minor concussion, but without this helmet it could have been much worse. The helmet was cracked completely through but it save my melon. Highly recommend!
