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 love this helmet! Used the sizing guide and it fits perfectly, better than my past helmets. Weight is important to me and this is a well built, yet very light helmet. Great field of vision. I am shocked to get a helmet of this quality at this price!Read All Reviews

Great helmet. Nice and tight, but not overly aggressive. Color scheme gnarly, which is a plus. Most importantly to me is the fact it is both DOT and SNELL approved, as I've had skull surgery and gotta keep my melon protected. Rocky Mountain ATV was a great resource in finding the right choice for me, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase.Read All Reviews

Pros: Fits good, amazing quality for the price. Cons: hard to put the helmet on with the goggles on the helmet, difficult finding preferred colors to go with older model bikes. To be honest I tried on several different helmets and Bell fit the best.Read All Reviews
