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.

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

So immediately upon trying this helmet on, I decided this is one of the best looking helps out there, no argument. The snell rating was nice to see too. Everything was very well built and you could tell it was as you'd expect of handmade Japanese quality. Initially however, my complaint was the helmet felt just a bit too tight (I'm a medium). I tried a large at a local shop and realized it was definitely too big, so I went back home and wore the medium for an hour straight while I mowed the lawn (comfort/Wright test best also to see how it breathes in heat at low (aka zero) speed. I'm glad I did! The longer I wore it, the more comfortable it has become. After 20 minutes, the cushions formed perfectly to my head, and now I can take it on and off much more comfortably, and the fitment is 100% perfect. Maybe it was the wearing over time under compression, maybe the heat and sweat helped, IDK, but I can't wait to bring it to the woods with my Sur Ron and see how it breathes at speed!Read All Reviews
