How To Pick The Perfect Helmet For Riding A UTV
If you own a UTV and plan to go off-roading in 2022, finding the perfect helmet is key to safety and efficiency. These machines ride fast and can be driven on unpredictable terrain and in unknown weather conditions. The best chance at protecting you and your riders is for you all to have the proper headgear. We are sharing tips on how to find the right helmet here.
Find A CSA Compliant Helmet
UTV or side-by-side helmets still have to meet the same criteria and standards that motorcycle helmets do. Finding a CSA-compliant helmet will ensure that it can protect you to the fullest capacity if you are in an accident while riding.
Buy A New Helmet
There are some things that you can buy used, but a helmet is not one of them. If you are in the market for a UTV helmet, it is best to buy a new one. Buying a used helmet does not ensure that it’s up to standard. You would need to find out from the seller if the helmet had been through any previous accidents and inspect it for any cracks or wear and tear. Either of the latter issues would mean that a used helmet would not be as safe for your headgear choice. One that is new and has not had any accidents under its belt would leave it to be the better choice.
Choose Full Face Protection
When looking for the perfect helmet for riding a UTV, you want to find one that has full-face protection. There are many helmets on the market that are open-faced and do not have face protection over your nose and or mouth. In the event of an accident, protecting these areas of your face can be crucial. The bulk of your security with open-face helmets will be on the head. Choosing a full-face helmet will allow you to be protected in all aspects of your head and face.
Try Before You Buy
An important factor in purchasing a new helmet is fit. If the helmet you wear does not fit your head correctly, the level of safety decreases. By trying on a helmet before you buy, you can make sure it fits your head snug and tight, which will allow for the highest degree of safety.
