UTV helmets are an excellent way to add an extra layer of safety to the emerging sport of side-by-sides. With proper headgear, you can enjoy traversing any terrain without fear. A larger chassis and steel frame doesn’t make head protection any less important for extreme off-road riding.
UTVs present a unique environment that provides more helmet options than ATV or dirt bike riders have. The protection required isn’t so much for impacts against the ground as it is for the side-by-side’s frame or interior objects. For example, since a seatbelt restrains you within the vehicle in the event of a crash, traditional motocross-style helmets aren’t necessary if you want to go for something a little different. Both open face and closed face helmets are appropriate for UTVs. Do you prefer the easier communication afforded by an open face helmet? Or do you seek the maximum protection offered by a closed face helmet? Whatever you want, we’ve got a solution here.
Since UTVs incorporate room for at least one passenger, they present a unique circumstance that other off-road vehicles don’t face. It is imperative that you provide proper safety equipment for your passengers, and that starts with the most important piece of gear: the helmet. Your passengers will appreciate it, and you’ll ensure that everyone is safe at all times.
Helmets for UTV riders aren’t just an important safety decision; they’re also mandatory depending on what state you ride in. That’s right; legislatures around the country are starting to reevaluate helmet laws and incorporate side-by-sides into existing (or even new) requirements. In strict cases, this applies to everyone; in other situations, it only applies to children. Of course, it’s best to always ensure you have enough helmets along with you. That way, regardless of where you go or who you’re with, you’ll be able to comply with the law and be safe.

Bought mine on closeout and cant believe how good it feels. Would highly recommend Bell helmets for there years in the industry and for having high quality products with great graphics. I love the design and flinch every time I catch a limb or rock because I don't want it to chipRead All Reviews

I bought this when replacing my HJC CL-X6 after landing on top of my head. I decided I would splurge since the X6 was so hot. The helmet is the best. I do not sweat like I did in any of my past CL-X helmets and it weighs nothing. It was pricey even when on close out, but it is well worth it. This is coming from someone who would buy last years CL-X helmets on close out for less than 100 bucks.Read All Reviews

This helmet replaced my CL-X5 one. This seems to be hotter than the 5. I sweat a lot more in this one, but I had a slow speed get off while side hilling on a deer trail and pogoed down the hill coming to a stop when landing square on my head. The top of my head was sore for a week and my neck was tweaked for a month, but I did walk away so the helmet did as it should.Read All Reviews
