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.

I bought the Airtrix Paradise, and all I can say is WOW!. The first thing I noticed when I pulled this out of the box is the paint is beautiful, and was not expecting this out of a sub $200 helmet. I will not have to send it to Tagger or Troy Lee because this helmet is ready to impress right off the shelf. The sacrifice of ventilation they talk about are unnoticeable and feels like it should cost more even for the compromises they made to make this Moto 9 inspired helmet affordable to the everyday rider. If you want the look and function for the Moto 9 without the Moto 9 price, this is the helmet to order. Very happy, and will be buying more for my whole moto family.Read All Reviews

Great looking. Removable padding. Lightweight. The sizing for these are a little off, I have always worn a large helmet and the large was too big, exchanged for a medium and was good to go. Only reason I give it a 4-star is because the visor is too small. It needs to be wider, it does not block out much sun especially for the desert riders, Ocotillo, Superstition, Glamis, etc.Read All Reviews

Bought this helmet for my son. I spent a fair amount of time looking at different helmets and was very impressed with the technology found in the 6D. Got the red and white and it is very sharp looking - much better in real life. He consistently wears a large and the helmet runs true to size. He loves the fit.Read All Reviews
