How To Choose the Right ATV Helmet



Do you have a cheap head?

I have always been of the opinion that when riding off road vehicles you must protect the single most important decision-making part of your body and thatís your head. However I have noticed that in the passing years many people choose to buy the cheapest ATV helmet they can find all the while not knowing if it would even protect them in a crash. To make matters worse people will by their children even cheaper head protection. This short read will hopefully help you make the right decision when choosing a helmet.

Letís take a brief glance into the many certifications that can be found on the legitimate helmets at your local dealer. We have all seen the DOT, SNELL and ECE stamps usually tucked down at the bottom of the backside of your helmet, but we want you to understand what each one means.

My wife and I recently switched to full face helmets. Much nicer when driving the rhino in winter. No goggles, warmer, better field of vision and our helmet comms fit great. I use a custom ordered Icon with irridium lens. Matt black with ghost skulls and barbed wire. Great helmet and xlnt quality with top rated safety.
