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 Snell & ECE 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.

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
