MT is a Spanish helmet maker known for its range of budget helmets. The MT is an off-road helmet with a thermoplastic shell and multi-density padding for shock absorption. It’s got a few nice touches like integral (but removable) peak for increased aerodynamics, and a goggle strap channel molded into the shell with anti-slip channels to stop the goggles shifting when you’re getting physical. It’s also got good ventilation with something MT call Active Flux 360 ventilation system – not sure that’s much more than vents at the front and an exhaust at the back to bring air over the skull – but most manufacturers like to give fancy labels to these things. It’s got some essentials for the active off-roader though – removable and washable lining and aluminum screws make cleaning it inside and out a bit easier.
The MT Synchrony isn’t yet Snell or SHARP tested though previously tested MT helmets have performed pretty well scoring between 3 to 5 stars – so we’d expect this one to be pretty safe.

Best place to buy an MT crash helmet?
Even though MT helmets are DOT certified, we're struggling to find US stores that stock them.
So you could try SportsBikeShop. They're based in the UK, have really competitive prices (they'll price match too) and offer outstanding service (9.8/10 on Trustpilot) including 365 day refunds. Don't forget you'll have to pay for shipping from the UK though.
Or you can jump through to the MT helmets pages at Amazon if you prefer to buy from there - but make sure you only buy from the most reputable sellers.
Please click either picture/link to drop onto their MT helmets pages. And if you buy from them, we get a small sum from the sale at no extra cost to you - a massive THANKS! (it's how we finance the site). Click here for more info on our recommended retailers.
