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.

I have wore this helmet for one day of riding. It fits very well with the exception of the cheek pads are a little awkward feeling. I took one fall and side of helmet hit the ground moderately but did no damage to the exterior finish. Very durable finish and protected better than expected.Read All Reviews

Quite possibly the best helmet ever for adventure riding. It's so comfortable you forget it's on. Lots of side view makes it a safe helmet when you're in traffic and have to maintain your forward vision. Plus Arai's safety features and reputation make it a no brainer. I used RMMC's sizing chart and was awarded a perfect fit. Helmet was in stock and I had it to my door in two days. 5 stars to RMMC and Arai.Read All Reviews

Very comfortable and fits well, and holds up to some pretty nasty spills without scratching. The only downside is the small clip that holds the center of the visor, its weak and I've snapped mine by just dropping the helmet on the ground.Read All Reviews

I have been quite impressed with the helmet so far and have but a few gripes. Lets start with the negatives. The visor isn't very durable. I broke the first ride out. I am pretty sure it was in the get off I had but can't be for sure as I was too preoccupied digging cactus out of my hand for the rest of the ride. It is still holding onto the helmet it is just cracked. Next and this is super minor and won't apply to most but the helmet seems to set against my head behind my ear, ever so slightly. I don't notice this at first but after I have had the helmet on for 6+ hours it starts to hurt a little. Now the positive and the reason we are all looking at these helmets. The ODS works great!!! I came off a rock ledge wrong and somehow managed to head-butt a tree (no additional damage to the visor /shrug, maybe I missed it as I hit with the top of the helmet). While I did hit hard enough to ring my bell, I was only disoriented for a moment, shook it off, and continued on. No headaches later, No damage to the helmet, just a moment of stars. DID I MENTION NO HEADACHE LATER!!! This was the only hard impact I have had in the helmet the rest of the hits have been grazers off of branches (shell is holding up very well). The reason I bought this helmet was for the ODS and I can say that I am quite pleased with it!! This is a very comfortable helmet! Another thing, the venting on this helmet is exceptional, very pleased with this, the helmet does seem to gather quite a bit of dirt/mud/branches inside of it, but can be very easily cleaned out. Would/will purchase again, it was quite the investment but well worth it. Note: using with a Leatt Neck Brace and the two seem to go very well together.Read All Reviews
