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.

Some people might say this helmet runs a little small: I think it's true to size. It felt extremely tight all over when just trying it on at home, but the first time I rode with it I forgot all about it and didn't take it off for two hours. I want my helmet to be tight like that when it's new because the comfort liner WILL pack out over time. It's just important the EPS liner fits right. I have what Arai would call and 'Intermediate Oval' head, and this helmet fits me well. The face port is large and easily accommodates my 100% OTG goggles. There is enough room behind the in bar for me to get my drinking tube in there. My criticisms are that it's a little heavier than some of the competition, even in the same price bracket, and the vent in the visor will allow sunlight in the rider's eyes if the visor is adjusted towards the lower end of it's range. Push it up and this problem goes away. Trying it on at home I thought they'd gotten the location of the chinstrap a little bit wrong, but in the field I never thought twice about it.Read All Reviews

For my head, HJC HELMETS FIT THE BEST. Spot on sizing based on HJC's sizing chart. I tried other brands and HJC helmets fit me the best, nice and snug tight no movement and comfortable. I got the silver black and looks awesome !! Fox air space goggles fit perfect.Read All Reviews
