After thoroughly testing the CKX Mission helmet with the integrated Air Management System (AMS) this winter, we are pleased to report positive and perhaps, surprising results.
When we say “surprising results” it’s only because we’ve heard the claims from companies, time and time again, how their products are the best, the most technologically advanced and how much we will fall in love with the products.
Frankly, it’s rare we come across a product that raises our eyebrows and makes us nod in agreement to these claims.
The CKX Mission helmet with AMS however, not only lived up to expectations, but left such an impression that Supertrax can honestly say it is the best full-faced snowmobile helmet we’ve ever worn.
It checks every box on the “want” list, from sexy design to overall comfort and quality. Its sporty look first attracted us but wearing the Mission lid sold us with its fantastic field of vision, lightweight feel and quietness.
Furthermore, tested in extremely cold riding conditions, the soft rubber breath deflector is super comfortable and does not make you feel suffocated. You can breathe normally without fear of frosting the face shield because the AMS – air management system actually works!
Honestly, there was some doubt prior to testing as some other full-faced helmet we’ve evaluated had faults and at least left an annoying little dot of frost on the shield by the end of a long, cold winter ride… until now.
The AMS system works by pushing air (including your breath) through the tunnels built along the edges of the helmet to a low-pressure area in the back. Kudos to the CKX engineers on this one. The Mission Helmet is a winner and if you’re a full-faced helmet rider, it’s time to give this lid some serious consideration.
