Helmet

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how many people wear them out there when trailriding? I am debating on buying one? When riding on the lakes it is cold and it hurts the eyes getting pelted by snow. If one was to buy a helmet is the open face with goggles the ticket here? How would these helmet styles work when sledding? Does it get too cold to ride? Where is the best place to get a good helmet and goggles? All these questions??????

I wear a full faced snowmoble helmet with a flip up face shield. Has vents in the helmet. Very warm and protects from the wind. I don't even wear any glasses underneath it. Junky........

Check your local regulations. I found out the hard way in Michigan, that helmets and eye protection are REQUIRED BY LAW while riding on public property (including on frozen lakes). We are also required to have an ORV sticker. Also, only one person can ride (there is one ATV that is built for two riders I think by Bombardier) because there are technically only one set of pegs even on the 4WD models with foot platforms. That lesson cost me fifty bucks!
Actually I prefer to use one. I have an open faced version but really wished I had an actual snowmobiling type for winter. They can be found at any ATV, Snowmobile, or Motorcycle dealer.

If you are just going to buy 1 helmet then I would buy a moto-cross type helmet and goggles. Then you can wear it in comfort all year long.

I think a snowmobile helmet would be too hot in the summer.

A lot of guys wear moto-cross helmets snowmobiling because you don't have to worry about fogging up the shield.

Dennis Kirk is a good plce to buy a helmet usually.

Full face helmets also keep more dust off your face during the summer but, they are hotter. There's drawbacks to both styles if only one helmet is purchased.

I always wear a helmet, after you have been hit by a low branch, or a rock from the machine in front of you. You will know why. I wear mine all year so I go for the open face and goggles. But there are times when a face sheild would be nice, like when there are alot of bugs. Good luck

My 2 cents....
I like the motocross style helmets with goggles. They work great for summer and winter as well. For winter get the breathe defletcor, helps keep warm and goggles never fog up. I like HJC - $80.00 plus goggles. great set-up.... Good luck

I just picked up a HJC full-face snowmobile helmet with flip-up shield for my son's for winter use, on sale for $89. Also got a motocross style helmet for summer use for $69. It cost me $50 for a pair of goggles that would fit over my prescription glasses, for use ice fishing if it is really cold out on the ride. Got the goggles at a ski shop.

I think the motorcross helmets work good. I've got a HJC motorcross helmet with goggles and a breath deflector for winter. If you get a motorcross helmet and goggles get the quick disconnect straps for it. I got my helmet at dennis kirk scratch and dent real cheap. It was just last years model nothing was wrong with it.

    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:
