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.

Before purchasing I went to my local MX store to try on some of the top helmets on the market. Which included the V3, 6D ATR, Troy Lee Designs SE4, Bell Moto 9 Carbon, and Shoei. After that time consuming task I realized the Fox V3 was the helmet for me. If you have a round face like myself you should definitely try one on. Also, the magnetic break away visor was a huge plus. And I can’t forget to mention how soft the interior lining was.Read All Reviews

My first dirt bike helmet. I went in knowing that the helmet is probably the most important piece of safety equipment. Leatt stuck out to me as above the rest with it's safety features. Overall the reduced size and weight are noticeable right out of the box. This helmet is amazingly light. It breaths very well to. Huge amounts of venting. Highly recommend this helmet.Read All Reviews
