As a parent, the safety of your child is top priority while they are out riding. A helmet can arguably be the most important piece of protective gear they will wear. Rocky Mountain ATV/MC provides a comprehensive selection of some of the best children’s helmets available on the market in light-weight, ergonomically advanced designs that offer the latest in safety technology and fresh new styles as well.
Each helmet we carry has a sizing chart in the description to help you find the best fit for your child. Although helmet sizing varies among manufacturers, there is a universal method of measuring your child’s head for the best possible fit: Measure the circumference of their head from 1” above the eyebrows and around the largest portion of the back of their head. This measurement should provide enough information to gauge which helmet size will be right for each style. Remember, you want the helmet to fit well – not too loose and not too tight – but snug for the best possible protection.
Extra room inside the helmet can reduce its protective power. A test you can perform to check for proper sizing is to see whether you can get the width of your finger to fit between the helmet padding and your child’s forehead. If you can, the helmet might be too large. To get a feel for a certain helmets’ sizing, checking out the customer reviews for the product can be useful. Sometimes the best reference for fit comes from someone who has tried it out first. If for any reason the helmet doesn’t fit, give us a call and take advantage of our Fit Guarantee - Apparel Exchange to get the correct size you need.
An additional protective item you might consider purchasing in conjunction with your child’s helmet is a quality neck brace. A child’s neck is much more fragile and can be subject to the weight of the helmet and the impact of the ride. Not only can a neck brace hold your child’s head steady as they ride, it also protects their neck from painful movements in the event of a crash. We have a great selection of neck braces that will offer the protection you want for your child as they ride.
We have one of the largest selections of DOT approved kids ATV helmets available on the market from trusted brands like 6D, Fly Racing, Fox Racing, HJC, One Industries, Thor and more. Take a look at the variety we carry today so that your kids can be protected on every ride they take.

Before purchasing I went to my local MX store to try on some of the top helmets on the market. Which included the V3, 6D ATR, Troy Lee Designs SE4, Bell Moto 9 Carbon, and Shoei. After that time consuming task I realized the Fox V3 was the helmet for me. If you have a round face like myself you should definitely try one on. Also, the magnetic break away visor was a huge plus. And I can’t forget to mention how soft the interior lining was.Read All Reviews

My first dirt bike helmet. I went in knowing that the helmet is probably the most important piece of safety equipment. Leatt stuck out to me as above the rest with it's safety features. Overall the reduced size and weight are noticeable right out of the box. This helmet is amazingly light. It breaths very well to. Huge amounts of venting. Highly recommend this helmet.Read All Reviews
