Helmet for snowmobiling and atving

5 posts in this topic

What is a good moderatly priced helmet for smowmobiling and atving? I am a bigger guy who wears glasses, so I am looking for something with a face shield that doesn't fog up too bad in the cold.

I just got a good one CHEAP at Dennis Kirk on I-35. < $100 for the better one - I got the XXXL. Use it for ATV & snowmobiles.

Highly recommend it!!

I've had a nice Bieffe for the last 8 years that works great. You can convert it from the full face shield to the motorcross style with visor in less than 2 minutes. I usually just run the motorcross style all year long though.

Check out Gander also. I just picked up a couple of Raider Modular helmets. They were 30% off through today. I have the same problem with glasses fogging. These have vents on them you can open that helps with that. (Chin and Forehead.)

I would recommend that you look toward an HJC CX-2 or similar style open face helmet. You can cut out a small square in the sides of the foam ring in some goggles for your glasses. Personally, I spend more money on a helmet because higher-priced models like the HJC ACX2 are about half the weight and have adjustable vents. Lightweight means you can ride longer without a sore neck, and more vents mean less overheating and fogging. I found my helmet on ebay and saved over $150. I would be concerned about buying a scratch and dent helmet from denniskirk, helmets are made for one hard impact only and they should be inspected or replaced after a crash. I did see that fleet farm had some decent looking helmets for under $100.

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com
