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.

Fit is spot on for me, style is subjective but I think this is one of the best looking low buck helmet out there. I could not find mentioned anywhere if they use different sized shells for the various sizes offered. I run a small, and the exterior looks less pumpkin head than other small helmets used. I suspect they have more than one shell size. Outside of looks, this helps with reducing the amount of leverage the helmet would put on the neck in the event of a torsional type impact. Pads have held up well, and not packed out like other helmets used. Ventilation is good relative to the price point too. The only issue I have had is that the button which holds the extra chin strap from flopping around lasted all of 2 rides. It is plastic, and simply gave up the ghost right away. No other issues after several months of continuous use. Pads don't seem to funk up as quickly as others. Perhaps that is a product of better ventilation, or maybe they are made from a material that holds odor less than others I have tried. Don't know, but I like it. If I were looking for one feature that I don't think should raise the price much (unlike carbon construction or 6D discs, etc.) I would like to see a ratcheting style chin strap with a quick release pull. Nitpicking for the price point though. All things considered, I would get this again unless jumping up significantly in price.Read All Reviews

I measured my head and went off the chart listed and the helmet was waaayyy to small. I went up one size and it's still tight but better a little snug than loose so I'm keeping it. very light, good styling. good buy for the price, if I was a more serious rider I'd definitely consider stepping up to a name brand but for what I'm doing this should be perfectRead All Reviews
