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.
UTV helmets come in many designs and styles, and we stock hundreds to make sure that you find the perfect one for you. Take a look at our extensive selection to find one that meets your requirements of comfort, style and fit.

Excellent helmet. Very comfortable and the XL fit me perfect as my head size is intermediate and measures 24 inches. I wore it around the house for a few days to break in the padding, and that helped a lot. It is very lightweight compared to my older Arai helmet and the 17 vents work great here in steamy Florida. The clear shield provides excellent field of view with no distortion. The sun shield works very well. This is the best dual sport helmet I have owned and my first AFX product. Excellent value at their price point. Highly recommended.Read All Reviews

I bought this helmet to ride the Barstow to Vegas last year. I'm 5-4 and new bikes are so tall I have problems. I lowered my Sixdays 2 inches and it's still too tall, but that's all I'm giving up on my suspension. Needless to say in 400 miles I fell - a lot. Slower riders in the technical sections and sand washes put a rider into situations you can't control and of course I created a few of my own. I'm 63 and plenty bruised up from 50 years of MX and dirt bikin so I bought lots of braces and wore a backpack. When I fell I rolled like a football without injury. A few times I had to find my visor and "snap' it back on. I mounted my GoPro on the underside of the visor between my eyes, it worked very well and didn't get a scratch on it.Read All Reviews
