Lake Forest, CA November 24, 2009 — Rug rats rejoice! Scorpion’s VX-9 youth helmet offers all the features and benefits of its VX-14 off-road older brother, but made specifically to fit kid-sized craniums. Knowing how fast mini riders can grow, one helmet can be transformed from small to medium to large simply by changing the snap-out inner liner.
In addition to the perfect fit, the VX-9 maximizes protection as the polycarbonate composite shell combined with Scorpion’s state-of-the-art dual density EPS liner to absorb maximum energy. In fact, this combination meets or exceeds all DOT safety standards.
Above and beyond passing the protection test, Scorpion’s washable KwikWick® moisture-wicking comfort liner keeps young riders cool no matter how hot the action is on the MX track. Speaking of cool, dual forehead air intakes and twin exhaust ports ensure plenty of airflow. While they were at it, the Scorpion engineers also redesigned the nose roost shield to flow more air without skimping on protection. In addition to the revised nose roost shield, the goggle/eye port area was expanded to enhance visibility.
Capping off all the technical improvements off, the “Impact” design now matches the big boys helmets in Scorpion’s product range, however kids can also choose the cool Ray Gun graphics. The new VX-9 is available in Red or Blue Impact color schemes or the exclusive black and white Ray Gun graphics. Best of all, Scorpion offers a full three-year warranty on the VX-9, same as its full-sized helmets!
MSRP: $99. 95
