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.

Took a 20 foot freefall of a desert cliff. Was wearing this helmet. I walked away!! Lost a few minutes and took a few days to come fully back. But Im not dead. Bought another one. Like bells motto in the 70s said " If you have a 10 dollar head get a 10 dollar helmet. Best fit and protection for the price. Sweat buckets in the desert in the summer. Water replaces that,nothing replaces your brain!Read All Reviews

This has been my primary helmet since the end of 2019 - I rode the 80% desert/20% moto for a year and then switched to 90% moto/10% desert for a year. Took a hard fall last month - swapped out, high-sided, and slammed my whole right side into the ground. Hit my head really hard and was dazed for a bit, seeing stars etc but was able to get up, collect myself and the bike, and head home. Ended up with a Bennet fracture in my right thumb and some serious whiplash to my neck but NO head injuries. I attribute that to this VFX-EVO helmet. Been nursing the Bennet fracture off the bike for a month and sent the helmet in for SHOEI's free inspection service - it came back with a letter stating the EPS liner was damaged and they recommend replacing. Definitely worth the cost of the helmet knowing I can take that hard of an impact to the dome and have no head injury. The free inspection service is great for peace of mind and I do know someone who sent the helmet in for inspection and SHOEI confirmed it was still safe so I believe they are honest too.Read All Reviews
