What do you wear when riding a Can-Am Off Road vehicle?

Safety First

Whenever you ride your Can-Am Off-Road vehicle, there are certain pieces of must-have off-road riding gear that you’ll want to bring along to ensure head-to-toe protection, which is key for all-day comfort and fun. A helmet, goggles, boots that cover the ankle, a long-sleeve shirt and pants, and gloves are some of the main items your off-roading wardrobe should include. Considering that head-to-toe protection is so vital, we always recommend keeping your legs and arms covered to help avoid getting hit by any branches, dust or rocks that may come too close.

However, these are just the basics, and your kit may include more ride-specific items such as full mud gear. Thankfully, whatever side-by-side riding gear you need, Can-Am can help.

Example Attire

When it comes to ATV riding gear, it’s best to start with a well-fitting helmet that is snug yet comfortable. Featuring a lightweight design that doesn’t compromise on safety, the Pyra Helmet, for instance, can even be a great choice for year-round use, especially if you’re doing more aggressive riding and know you will encounter a lot of debris. No matter the helmet, clear vision is crucial on the trail, particularly when you tackle the toughest of terrain.

For motocross-style helmets specifically, having a good, dependable set of goggles is a must no matter the season. Designed primarily to keep debris out of your line of sight, be it through anti-fog and anti-scratch technology, or the use of distortion-free optics, the Trench Goggles or the Flint goggles are great choices that don’t sacrifice comfort.

Whether you’re holding onto handlebars or a steering wheel, a comfortable pair of gloves will provide the extra grip and protection you need. They’re so important, in fact, we even recommend bringing two pairs in case your main one gets wet or muddy during the ride. The Can-Am Steer Gloves make for a great option.

You’ll also want to ride with a pair of sturdy pants and close-toed shoes (ideally over-the-ankle boots), as it’s easy for rocks, mud and debris to accidently hit you. Likewise, ensuring you stay covered is super important; made from soft cotton that provides a comfortable and stretchy feel, the Can-Am Utility Pant offers a versatile, slim-cut design that can do just that. We suggest a long-sleeve shirt for the same reason. In addition, make sure to wear something that dries quickly in the summer or blocks the wind on cooler days, such as the Windproof Jersey or a performance UV-protective T-shirt.

When things get really muddy, you’ll want to make sure y equip yourself with sturdy waders or at least an emergency rain kit. With Mud Pants, wet and muddy conditions certainly won’t be holding you back. The Can-Am Mud Jacket also keeps moisture out with its waterproof construction while working in tandem with vent panels to always keep you dry underneath. No matter the context, having gear that can withstand the conditions is important — though this rings especially true when mudding.

Ride With Confidence

And with that, you’ll be protected from head to toe when riding in your Can-Am Off-Road vehicle, which is the key to all-day comfort and fun!

Plus, always refer to your vehicle’s operator’s guide for more specific information.
