The best youth ATV helmets are by far the most important piece of gear for your little adventurer. Riding ATV’s has not diminished in popularity, and they’ve only become more and more popular over the years. This is why it’s important to follow safety-related rules. One way to do that is to use proper gear, like ATV helmets. This is especially true when children are involved. The following is a list of the three most popular kids ATV helmets and youth ATV helmets.
The DOT Motocross/ATV/Dirtbike
A very popular and reasonably priced youth ATV helmet from the stable of Typhoon helmets. Its main claim to fame is that it was originally designed as a youth helmet as opposed to an adult sized helmet packed with pads to make it fit on smaller heads. Weighing only 3 pounds, it comes in three sizes. (Youth ATV helmets usually come in small, medium and large.) As the name indicates, it is designed according to DOT standards. The finish is done with high gloss clear coat which gives it a fun look. And, the liner can be removed and cleaned.
What makes this one interesting is that it comes in four sizes, instead of the usual three. Small, medium, large and extra large. The small one can even be used as a toddler ATV helmet. This helmet is constructed with an ABS thermal plastic shell fiber reinforced impact resistant foam. These helmets not only meet DOT regulations, but even beats it for durability and strength. The cheek pads, liner, and sun visor are also removable.
This off -road gear was made with girls in mind, and matches most of the descriptions above. Usually, the glove size will match the helmet size. For example, a small helmet will come with a small pair of gloves. These kids ATV helmets come in four different sizes as well. When measurement is taken of the wearer, the area above the eyebrows is how you can indicate the right size. As with the other helmets, it meets DOT specifications and has washable liner.
