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.

I'm 50 getting back into dirt biking with my kids. I'm really amazed how far helmet technology has come. This helmet is nothing like the helmets I used back in the day. Two things that always bugged me about helmets are field of view and weight. WOW! This helmet is very light and has great peripheral vision. I actually enjoy wearing it while riding.Read All Reviews

if you live in a cooler riding area it may not be important to have airflow, but here in new mexico it's an easy bake oven on your head. Mine is white by the way! Otherwise it fits well, after having to buy smaller cheek pads, and seems to be of reasonable quality for the price. Oh I didn't mention that you have to cut the visor sliding area so the visor doesn't stick straight up also. Because it doesn't have good airflow the shield fogs over often and completely. We'll see how it works this winter, 2019, and report back if it works better than I think it will.Read All Reviews
