ATV helmet brand?

Long story short my uncle gave me his Honda Foreman that he no longer uses. I was wondering if there is any recommendation on helmet brand? I have looked online and their are a lot of choices. I have never owned and ATV so I really don't even know where to start as far as brand , features, etc. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

dce offered a good brand. Also, Bell has been making quality helmets for many moons.

If it were me, I would go with the full face variety, so you get some jaw protection.

Since it's your first ATV, take it slow. Rollovers can be painful...and deadly.

Congrats and happy riding!

I have a couple of neat camo ones stored in the garage, but not sure of the manufacturer.

Anything that meets at least the DOT specification. You can get higher ratings as well.

The DOT approval requires no testing. SNELL approval does. I will not buy a helmet for me or my kids without it being SNELL approved.

Not to hi-jack the OP......but I'm in the very same boat. I've ridden a little. But never owned a quad. I ended up with my father-in-law's King Quad 450 after he passed.

A twist on the OP's question......what's the best helmet FOR THE MONEY ?? I'm assuming there is a significant price range ??

Go on motorcyclecloseouts.com. They often have sales on helmets. I got mine for $100 which was 70% off. Bell, Fly, Shoei and Arai are really good brands but there are a ton of others that are just as good. Just make sure they have the Snell and or the European safety testing. It’s M85 if memory serves me correctly. That’s the biggest factor between helmets. Weight, and the name is something you’ll pay a premium for.
