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.

The F5 helmet is easily the best helmet I have ever used. I got my first F5 helmet back in 2017 and I still run it to this day. Besides being extremely light and comfortable, this helmet breathes very well. As someone who runs hot all the time as well as dealing with chronic neck stiffness, these things are top priorities to me. The FIDLOCK is one of my favorite features on the Klim helmets and after using it for a few years I have a difficult time even considering a helmet that doesn't have it. Klim does a great job with the styling and graphics on all of their products, which is uncommon in the Powersports world where all wearable items tend to look like they were designed to be sold at nickel back concert or a low budget tattoo shop.Read All Reviews

After 20 plus years of riding this Shoei VFX EVO helmet is by far the best fitting helmet for my head. I got the Shoei to replace another helmet. The Shoei has a much better field of view and impact protection, plus Shoei offers crash inspections. Very happy with my Shoei and will recommend them to everyone.Read All Reviews
