Take off-road safety seriously; grab these ATV accessories to protect yourself!
ATV Accessories For Safety
When it comes to ATV safety, taking the right precautions and utilizing and equipping yourself with mandatory safety accessories is paramount for a safe off-roading journey. Certain indispensable safety accessories, such as helmets, are not only crucial for your protection but are also legally required for riders. Today, we will go over some of the most essential quad accessories that will help you keep safe during your next adventure.
Helmets are mandatory in Canada and other countries while out on public roads and trails. Here are some examples of some types of helmets:
Full Face Helmet
A full face helmet offers the most comprehensive protection. It covers your entire head, including your face and chin. It also features a chin guard, a visor that can shield the sun's glare, dust and debris.
Open Face Helmet
An open face helmet, also known as a "three-quarter helmet", covers the top and sides of your head but leaves your face open and visible. While they do offer good visibility and ventilation, it offers minimal protection for your face, leaving it exposed to the elements.
Also referred to as a "flip-up helmet", this helmet offers versatility as you can flip the face cover up, effectively transitioning the "full face helmet" to an "open face helmet". This design can be convenient for those who want the option to quickly communicate without removing the entire helmet.
The half helmet, also called a "skull cap", is popular amongst cruiser and street riders. They are not recommended for off-road use due to the reduced coverage on your head.
"When it comes to choosing the right ATV helmet, you should also consider other factors, such as: protection, visibility, intended use, age of rider, DOT certification, comfortability and your overall price range." - L1FE Outdoors ATV/UTV
