- Bike Checks
We have been naming this Essentials for a while now and it seemed fit to change it because there are so many good products coming out and not all of them are essentials. We are teaming up with BMX-Shop.com and re-branding this feature as the "Product Spot". So here are five great products to check out.

Helmets are a huge part of being safe and everyone knows a rider who hates to wear a helmet regardless of whether they are in danger or not. We also know riders who wear non certified helmets because of the overwhelming comfort they offer. Unfortunately that comfort comes with a price, a lack of safety. Luckily for you, TSG have released a flexible version of their Dawn helmet that is extremely comfortable and 100% certified. Priced £10 more than the original Dawn helmet, this is worth the extra money to be safe and comfortable. Price: £49.99
The TSG Dawn Flex BMX Helmet brings a truly soft-fitted comfort combined with ultimate protection to the table! This helmet is what soft-shell users have been waiting for: the perfect compromise between safety and comfort. This Dawn Helmet has a classic full-cut design with ear protection and has been constructed with a FlexTech innovation which offers a flexible interior for individual head shapes.
When it comes to comfort, TSG FlexTech helmets utilize a series of interior EPS foam segments connected by a reinforced skeleton which allows the helmet to flex and mould around your head giving you an unprecedented shape and fit for ultimate comfort and protection; the TSG Dawn Flex BMX Helmet fits snugly without causing any cramping and will exceed all of your expectations!
Each shell is size specific and comes with two sets of pads
Sizes: S/M: 54-56cm, L/XL: 57-59cm.
