MX550 Helmet Technologies

It is not every day that we at SCOTT develop a new motocross helmet. One thing was sure for bringing the MX550 to life: We were not going to compromise. Based on our three core competencies innovation, technology and design and shaped by years of experience, we are unbelievably proud to introduce the safest and most ventilated motocross helmet we have ever created. Exceptional comes as a standard.

SCOTT helmets: “Get your Head in the Game.”


Get your Head in the Game for us means that you can wear our helmet and the helmet pretty much disappears on your head. You can focus 100% on racing, 100% on winning knowing that you are protected and that you have the best equipment in the world.



Class Leading Ventilation

At Scott we have extensive knowledge on aerodynamics. How air flows through a helmet is pretty much the same as air flows around the helmet. To achieve class leading ventilation, we spent countless hours testing, modifying and re-testing prototypes.

The MX550 was designed to provide maximum airflow thanks to its unique construction

We benchmarked the MX550 ventilation in a wind tunnel scenario against key competitors. It significantly outperformed these competitors, reassuring us that we have achieved our goals.

Safety as Priority

At SCOTT our mission is to protect your head. We see it as our key goal of who we are and the helmets that we produce.


Riders experience two types of impacts:

1. Radial impacts (impacts straight into the head)
2. Angular impacts (cause rotational violence t passed to the brain)

With the MX550 we wanted to address both types of impacts, that is why we use Conehead and MIPS® technology.



Conehead Technology against radial impacts

Conehead technology is a unique construction with two different densities of EPS and a unique geometry between the two which increase the impact protection of the helmet.

MIPS Brain Protection System against angular impacts

MIPS works by putting in a slip layer between the head and the helmet. It offers superior safety performance in case of angled impacts by reducing the rotational violence transmitted to the brain.
