If there is one item of ATV riding gear you never want to leave the house without, it is definitely your helmet. Women’s ATV helmets have changed a lot over the years – for the better. Not only are they more stylish, they are lighter, stronger and designed to exceed the standards set to keep you safe as you ride.
You’ve heard the concept of wearing a good quality helmet that meets DOT standards preached time and time again, but have you ever wondered why a helmet that meets or exceeds these standards is so important? Basically, the ratings all boil down to how well a helmet performs during a rigid set of testing procedures, including those focused on:
Helmets come in a variety of shapes and styles for many different kinds of activities – but not all helmets are created equal. Helmets that are specifically formulated for ATV or motocross riding have been designed to meet the challenges you might face on a ride. They have been tested accordingly to make sure that when it comes down to the wire, the helmet will perform well under pressure. DOT approved helmets have met at least the minimum testing requirements made by the US government in each safety test. Additional non-profit organizations such as Snell have also complied a separate set of rigorous tests to assess the overall integrity of a helmet and how it performs when you need protection the most. When you wear a helmet that has been certified by these organizations, you can feel confident that you have made a step in the right choice for your safety.

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
