Helmet for snowmobiling and atving

Question

walleyewild

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.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
