Why wear a helmet?
Safety is definitely part of it, but longtime off-roaders agree that helmets also provide more comfort. Helmets take the worry out of being hit by the sun, sand, gravel, debris and overhead branches. If you ever have to make a sudden stop, your helmet will also prevent a nasty bruise or concussion if your head hits the handlebars. Helmets also cushion your ears from road noise and wind.
Another safety advantage of helmets—especially ones in lighter colors—is they make you more visible to other off-roaders. Plus, you can always find one that fits your unique style. And did you know that "helmet hair" is cool? It’s a telltale sign you’ve been on a wicked off-road adventure!
