SEVEN UTV HELMETS UNDER $250

It’s not all about which one you buy or how much you spend, we just want you and your family to ride protected. For racing, helmets can cost anywhere between $500 to $2000, but we don’t think those are necessary for an average weekend trail ride. For us, any new helmet with at least a DOT rating will work perfectly for that unexpected tip-over or even banging your head on the roll cage getting into the seat. So, we have put together a list of our top seven UTV helmets under $250.

PCI HJC C3-R3 DOT

Price: $114.99

Contact: www.pciraceradios.com

The HJC CS-R3 is lightweight, comfortable, and uses a soft, removable Nylex interior, and comes with a tool-less 95-percent UV protective shield. Total helmet weight wired with Race Air is 3.6 pounds. Spend $214.99 to get the Race Air Port and $249.99 with PCI Elite wiring.

 

PCI Pyrotect Half Helmet

Price: $134.99

Contact: www.pciraceradios.com

The Pyrotect DOT UTV open-face helmet gives you that open-air experience while keeping you safe and still being able to work with communication headsets. The construction includes a lightweight (2.2-pound) composite shell, nylon liner and an adjustable tinted visor system.

 

There are tons of helmets to choose from. For UTVs, our go-to is typically a full-face shielded helmet. They work best in the seated driving position, especially under a roof-equipped UTV. Just about every helmet can be wired for communications. The other option you want to consider before choosing a helmet, is whether or not you will use a fresh air-pumper system or not. That feature is not easy to add after the fact.

 

Klim R1 Fresh Air

Price: $219.99

Contact:

www.klim.com    

This full-featured helmet has an EZ-Wipe optically-clear face shield, drop-down tinted sun visor, top-mount air intake port with pressure adjustment and zip-off dust skirt. This is an adult-sized helmet available in medium to XXL. You can buy the R1 direct from Klim for $229.99 or from PCI completely wired for communications for only $125 more.

 

Rugged/Bell Qualifier

Price: $119.95

Contact: www.ruggedradios.com

Affordable performance in an off-road side-by-side helmet. The Qualifier is a super-comfortable, DOT-approved helmet. It includes a neck skirt to keep the dust out and the smiles in.
