You might be strapped in with protection all-around, but don't neglect wearing a UTV helmet even when riding in a side-by-side at slow speeds. Bumping your head hurts but more than that the long term effects of concussions, even slight ones, is not something to test fate. Whether you race or just enjoy the off-roading aspects to owning a UTV, wearing a helmet protects you in the event of a turnover, collisions with other riders or debris kicked up from any number of off-road vehicles in the area.
You may wonder the difference between a UTV helmet and those for dirt bikes or ATVs. Nothing! The same industry brands that make helmets for Motocross and dirt bikes function just the same when riding in a UTV. All UTV helmets we sell carry Department of Transportation (DOT) rating and some include the independent Snell rating, a non-profit organization with stricter standards.
UTV helmets protect your head and reduce serious injury or death in the event of a crash or any other event resulting in an impact to the brain. Most states require helmet use on public roads but not so much when riding a UTV on trails. Some public parks and trails systems may require a helmet to ride in their jurisdiction but not necessarily on private lands. It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Don't let that be you! Wear a UTV helmet. UTV helmets come packed with features, have a stylish look and manufacturers construct them with modern technological features that push safety while maintaining the utmost in comfort and freedom of movement. UTV helmets represent part of the riding experience as well as rider image.
