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.

To start, this is the same exact helmet as my brother's Fly brand helmet. Made in the same Chinese factory no doubt. The helmet looks great and I wanted to like it but: the visor distorts your vision, so Ive been using goggles. It has no easy way of removing the face shield, first you need to remove the visor, then remove screws to get the shield off, oh, and there are plastic washers that are easy to loose so don't plan on riding somewhere and then switching to goggles. Its really loud, waay too much wind noise, and its not aerodynamic so your head will get pushed around in the wind on the freeway. The visor is too small to be useful, and it doesn't drop down far enough to even see it while the helmet is on. It runs a size big, I'm normally a large but would need a medium in this, also the pads aren't very soft. I dont recommend it.Read All Reviews

This helmet is comfortable and light. Using the sizing chart it recommended a size L which was too tight. I had the opportunity to try both the L and XL sizes before purchasing. If your head is right at the upper end of size L I would recommend going with XL.Read All Reviews

Amazing fit. Out of the box it wasn't as comfortable as my Moto9 , but after a short ride the Moto Flex9 felt like it was custom made for my head. My old helmet felt like antiquated technology after using the Flex. I thought my old helmet fit good, but this is just a whole new level that is hard to describe. The pice is pretty steep, but I've long said a helmet that would protect better in low and high speed crashes was long overdue. I hope the price drops soon, as I plan to outfit my whole family. The only drawback the I found was my face was very close to the front of the chin bar. Not a huge issue, but it might make it difficult to use some hydration pack mouth pieces.Read All Reviews

Really like this helmet. I had the XD3 and when it came time to replace had to get another Arai. The fit is so comfortable and it is light. I used the size chart and it was right on. The XD4 has better ventilation in my opinion. I feel very safe in the helmet. Yes, the price was a struggle to get by but it's your head. The only thing I could complain about is the plastic air ducts on the top. I have not done it but could see breaking these going under and hitting a tree branch. All in all money well spent.Read All Reviews
