I guess I will need to be purchasing 4 new helmets for my UTV. Does anyone know of any reasonable priced ones that will allow me to still listen to the stereo I just recently installed? Any help will be appreciated.

Want something cheap, dot stickered and listen to the tunes check out skid lid helmets. They are the beanie Harley style helmets. Found them for 27.99 a helmet online at www.jafrum.com for the gloss black. Plus spend $100 and free shipping. They make them with designs on them for around $50. Helmets are light at about a pound, pound and a half. This would be my suggestion.

Chrome Dome scooter styles for all family members.
Ah, I love the "Союз Советских Социалистических Республик" helmet. Will this be the new symbol for us if Nov. 6th goes wrong???

On a real note, thanks for the ideas.

Thanks for the link. They have a crazy selection and prices seem very reasonable. Now all I need to do is figure out what I want. I am thinking a carbon fiber helmet or maybe a good light weight downhill mountain bike helmet???

Don't sell that look short of what it is. That is one sexy looking helmet there! :eek:

Well, ok, at least it gets you out of a ticket!

I am not thinking this helmet will work, From what i have read and heard they are going to pass the the law Jan 1st and will require the sides of the helmet to cover the ears

According to this:

38601. A person shall not operate, or allow a passenger in, a recreational
off-highway vehicle unless the person and the passenger are wearing safety
helmets meeting the requirements established for motorcycles and motorized
bicycles pursuant to Section 27802.


and this:

https://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d12/vc27802.htm

The regulations shall include, but are not limited to, the requirements imposed by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 218 (49 C.F.R. Sec. 571.218) and may include compliance with that federal standard by incorporation of its requirements by reference.


and this:

That Simpson meets the standard by my analysis.
