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.

Super light and comfortable with a a great field of vision. Only gripe is it scratches easy. 1st ride was a muddy one and removing goggles multiple times during the day provided numerous scratches because of the strap. Not any helmet would have done better but still disappointing to see them after day 1.Read All Reviews

I'm just getting back into off-road/adventure riding after a 20 year layoff, prior to that I raced motocross for many years as well as a bit of flat track and ice. I was going to get an adventure helmet, but nothing I wanted was available so I went with my old standby - the Shoei motocross helmet. I've always worn Shoei helmets as they fit so well and are so comfortable. This one did not disappoint! It fits like a dream, The size charts puts me right in the middle between a large an XL. I opted for the XL and it fits perfectly.Read All Reviews

Make sure to try one of these helmets on before you buy it. Fits great, really snug, and I have a big head. I wear a size large. But the cheeks pinch a bit so you need to wear down the pads on the inside before it fits comfortably. Just a heads up.Read All Reviews
