The EQ3 Lynx riding helmet has made safety its first priority, but equally important is it’s comfort and style.

The removable and washable Coolmax lining creates excellent ventilation.

An independent testing by a Swedish insurance company, Folksam in 2018 not only did the EQ3 Lynx performed best of all helmets tested, it also was 30% better than the average helmet, most of which were more expensive.

What exactly is MIPS?

The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet-integrated, low-friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head. This layer creates a way for the rotational force to be absorbed and redirected rather than transmitted to the brain during an impact. It’s held in place with flexible bands that clip the MIPS liner to the helmet’s foam in multiple anchor points. The system sounds simple, but in reality, this technology was developed and tested over countless hours in a lab. Visit this page on MIPS technology to learn more about how it works.

How is a helmet with MIPS technology different from other helmets?

The Back On Track Lynx EQ3 helmet is the first English riding helmet to contain Multi-Directional Impact Protection System which has been tested over countless hours and is proven to offer better protection against rotational motion than a helmet without MIPS. Since 1996, research and tests have been performed to compare a helmet with the MIPS Brain Protection System to a conventional helmet. The results showed that it was possible to redirect and reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain by adding the MIPS Brain Protection System.

Helmet Fitting/Measuring: To measure for the best fit, find the circumference of the head. To begin, use a flexible tape measure and place it 1-1/2 cm above the eyebrows, skimming the tops of the ears, take it around the back of the head to the fullest part. Using the rider’s measurement and the chart below, find the corresponding helmet for their size range. Please note that the rider’s hair should be as worn when using the helmet.

Dial-Fit System: The Lynx helmets include a dial-fit system, after fitting the rider for their helmet, adjust the dial so that the helmet fits securely, then adjust the chinstrap.

    I was concerned about purchasing a helmet without trying it on, but without a local stockist I took the risk and and very happy with the result. A very comfy, smart looking helmet with a great safety rating. Purchased on the Friday and recieved it in Victoria on Tuesday!

    This was a birthday present for my 11yr old. Not only does it look great but I’m told it’s the most comfortable helmet she’s ever worn… Add in the safety features and you can’t go wrong.

    This helmet is amazing, with a young child (10) competing at a high level, the falls are big ones for tiny bodies when they happen, this helmet hands down is the best one we have purchased to date ( 5 helmets, we do replace every time she hits her head) we are buying one each for our 8 and 6 year old

  19. Heather Hamblin (verified owner)

    I have found this helmet very comfortable but not so sure if it will be ventilated enough for summer.

  20. Emma J. (verified owner)

    This helmet is amazing, so good that we have ordered a second one for our 8 year old, service was fantastic with updates being regularly offered! First class business and product

  21. Georgina (verified owner)

    My previous helmet was cracked significantly after a fall while jumping. This made me realise how vulnerable my head, indeed my brain is, so I did lots of research into finding the safest helmet on the market. Initially I was worried about buying a helmet without trying it on, however the adjusting dial in this helmet alleviated my concerns. This helmet fits perfectly, feels great to wear and looks good too.
    I now feel really protected- thanks!

  22. Barbara Cook (verified owner)

    Very comfortable and relatively light

  23. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Really happy with this helmet, fits far better than any I’ve tried on including some 2-3 times its price, and the safety of it is also very reassuring

    Hey! I ordered a lynx helmet last week, I just wanted to say that I absolutely love it! It is so comfortable and I love that it has the best safety features at a fraction of the price of the other helmet manufacturers. Thanks for making these available in Australia! ❤

  31. Shelly L. (verified owner)

    Great Helmet. Very comfortable. A quality product but most importantly very safe. I was concerned about the weight for my 8 yo daughter (slightly heavier than some other children’s helmets) but she loved hers also and was not concerned about the weight.

    I was given one for Christmas and I absolutely love it. Super comfortable and really nice to ride in

  34. Cathy (verified owner)

    Love the helmets, purchased 2 after reading lots of reviews on various brands. I purchased a brown for me & black for my daughter. I think the brown is especially nice & glad I got in first when we were deciding what colours to order.!
    Both fit very well with plenty of adjustment plus we think they look great.

    Lovely light weight helmet – I find it tricky to get a helmet that fits so I was nervous about buying online but have found this one to be pretty flexible and easy to fit.
