First Look: Thor Reflex Helmet and 2021 Motocross Gear

Here is the first official look at the THOR MX Reflex Helmet that we've seen throughout the year on the H.E.P. Suzuki riders.

First Look: Thor Reflex Helmet and 2021 Motocross Gear

Vital MX: THOR MX finally releases their latest high-end helmet that we've seen in supercross this year. The THOR Relfex Helmet stands apart from the rest of moto helmets by using Koroyd in combination with EPS foam and MIPS slip-layer technology. In short, Koroyd is a energy management material that is made up of small plastic tubes bonded together that are designed to crush in an impact. The claimed benefit over solid EPS is that it is extremely breathable since it is essentially an open structure. This material is used in some high-end cycling and ski helmets, as well as in Klim's F5 off-road helmet. 

The Reflex is offered in two shell materials: Carbon for $495 and Fiberglass Composite for $395.

DISCRIPTION:

The new Reflex helmet embodies the infusion of style and technology. Available with a carbon fiber or fiberglass composite shell, the Reflex offers superior technology with Koroyd® technology integrated into a premium dual density EPS liner in conjunction with MIPS® Brain Protection System. The Reflex is a helmet that is as much a work of art as it is purpose built to support a racer’s needs when things go wrong out on the track.

Koroyd and EPS work together in the THOR MX Reflex Helmet.

THE ULTIMATE DAMAGE CONTROL SYSTEM

Koroyd’s welded tubes crumple instantly and consistently on impact, absorbing maximum force in a controlled manner, minimizing energy transferred to your head.

ADVANCED BREATHABILITY AND COOLING

Air flows consistently through the open-cells, whilst hot air from your head can easily escape, ensuring more efficient cooling in the most intense conditions.

DIRECT & ANGLED IMPACT PROTECTION

This unique behavior helps to protect your skull and brain from direct and angled impacts which may reduce the risk of suffering a life-changing injury.

THOR MX Launches 2021 Collection


Poway, CA – August 10, 2020 - Great challenges must be met with even greater advancements. For the 2021 season, THOR is very proud to announce key technical updates to our championship winning racewear collection, alongside brand-new, progressive technical products designed to elevate riders and racers to reach their own next level of performance. 

PRIME PRO

Factory Red Bull KTM ace Cooper Webb has preferred the PRIME PRO chassis since it was launched in 2019. It was throughout Cooper’s championship-winning season and strong 2020 series follow up that THOR gathered vital race day knowledge to enhance the PRIME PRO for 2021. Featuring new lay-flat, inboard side cinches, amplified density In-Motion main chassis fabric and upgraded stretch mesh panels in critical areas, the revamped PRIME PRO pant is ready to continue its winning ways.

PULSE

Never before has an update so clearly redefined what a product is tasked to achieve. Taking critical material and fit cues from PRIME PRO, the all-new PULSE chassis continues a legacy rooted in materials designed for better abrasion resistance and extended wear, with focused integration of In-Motion materials at key locations to reduce weight and increase flexibility. Additionally, the Women’s PULSE pant and jersey chassis received a fit refinement, resulting in a more athletic, performance-oriented appeal. No other kit on the market offers this level of tech and performance fit, at such a reasonable price.

About THOR Motocross: THOR was founded by 4-time World 250cc Motocross Champion, Torsten Hallman, in 1968 in San Diego, California. Two years earlier, Torsten had come to the United States at the request of Husqvarna to help promote the bike and introduce it to the US market. Torsten saw the American racer’s potential and the need for quality motocross gear so he began importing pants, gloves and jerseys under the brand name Hallman Racing, or THOR (Torsten Hallman Original Racewear). This was the beginning of THOR. 

Aaron Plessinger shows off his MTB skills in THOR's new mountain bike line of gear.

Over the years, countless races and championships have been won by riders wearing THOR. Every product is a progression, a new step forward in design and performance. Always racing forward, always respecting our past, always focused on building quality products that exceed rider expectations. See what’s new at www.thormx.com or call 858-748-0040
