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.

Great value for the money!! Comfortable, plush and quality materials add up to top notch helmet from Bell!! I used to Rep helmets for Helmet House, so I’ve had hours of training on properly fitting helmets and in knowing what to look for as far as helmet inadequacies are and this helmet is great!! I bought one of the first Showtime helmets and Bell has come a long way!!Read All Reviews

you get what you pay for applies here. you cant go wrong buying a moto-9 on sale. Its the most comfortable helmet i've ever had and i've had 6-8 helmets over the years. Leading edge technology in safety is hard to put a price on, i guess if you have a $100 cranium you should buy a $100 helmet, otherwise buy a moto-9 on sale. 2 thumbs up.Read All Reviews

After years of wearing a $100 helmet, I decided my brain was worth more than $100 so I wanted to get a high-end helmet. I tried on many many different brands and nothing really seem to fit my oval head until I slipped on the bell Moto 9. It fit like a glove right off the shelf and I can’t wait to use it.Read All Reviews
