Riding offroad presents a different set of demands and the MX style helmet is the best option to meet them. By using goggles, dust is prevented from blowing into the eyes. MX style helmets also provide a great field of view, excellent ventilation and a visor to protect against roosts and sun glare.
Helmets for snowmobiling are similar to both motorcycle and offroad helmets but with special features to help prevent fogging. Double lens shields and goggles resist fog build up like a dual pane window. Breath guards channel the rider’s breath away from the shield or lens. Electric shields can be added to heat the shield to prevent fogging to an even further extent.
Quick Tips: How to Buy a Powersports Helmet
- Check safety ratings. DOT standards are required for street legal use. SNELL requirements offer the highest, independent safety standards.
- Find the right fit for your head. Most riders wear a helmet that is too large for them. Measure your head with a cloth tape at the largest portion of your head and cross reference that measurement against the size chart for the brand. Sizes differ by manufacturer, so test what works for you!
- Select the best helmet style for your ride. Full face helmets offer the most protection and coverage, but many prefer more access, a greater field of vision, and a lighter style such as a modular, open face or half helmet.
- Remember: Most powersports helmets should be replaced every five years since their protective qualities degrade over time.
