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.

This helmet is one of the best out there. ITs awesome looking and feels like you are wearing a silk pillow. If you are gonna protect your head, you might ask well go all out. It is your noggin after all and without it, you are pretty much useless. This will definitely keep your eggs from breaking. This helmet is not only cool looking but it also has the MIPS system and isSNELL/DOT approved. SNELL is a much better rating compared to DOT and even ECA. SNELL has very high safety standards and I feel good knowing it passes the highest tests out there. I love the Matte/Gloss combo finishes. I have the blue helmet and it really pops out on the trail/track. Definitely can't miss my head from afar if you're looking. I do have one complaint....That is, that the chin strap is really uncomfortable. I mean FOX went all out with this helmet and still left this uncomfortable beard destroyer of a chinstrap on their helmets? I used to rock the V-1 and that thing was uncomfortable. GO forbid you have hair on your head or a beard. Thats my only complaint and it isn't even that bad. I can live with the chinstrap. I saw this helmet priced for 449.00 at my local cycle shop but I got it for 224.00 on this site. Rocky Mt Atv & M are the best to deal with. I had a size issue with this helmet. I am a large in other FOX helmets but in this I am a Medium. I had a lot of room in the large around my temples and I could get two fingers down the sides above my cheek pads. That means your helmet is too big! A helmet that is too big will not protect you like one that fits. If you are gonna spend money, get the right size! Anyway, when I called to make my exchange, they picked up the phone (800 #) after one ring, no hold, and no annoying automated BS. I told the guy I got the wrong size and not only did he take care of everything no questions asked....he also offered to pay for my expedited shipping! All said and done I will have this helmet overnighted and save ten dollars compared to my original order! My original order was 244 (20 bucks rushed delivery), and my order after returning the large and getting the med is 234. They were awesome to deal with and I will definitely do all my business with them. Do yourself a favor and get this helmet!!!!Read All Reviews
