Maybe you can explain why? Is that because of airbags, because of the rating? Is this more dangerous than nothing at all?
I didn't want to go down this path but that incident reinforced what I always believe...that I'll never get in anything in in the dirt at more than a low speed without a helmet. Maybe it wouldn't have made a difference in his case, but if I could have helped...
We don't really "test" our truck, but we play in it a lot. We don't typically suit up in full race gear but we ALWAYS wear helmets. We have two play trucks between us...my race partner and I, and we've both got fancy sets of headsets but we literally have never worn them because we always wear helmets. I'm not a safety nazi, but I cringe every time I see youtube vids of guys out playing in the desert in UTVs, prerunners, etc...jumping and doing fun stuff...without a helmet.
same thing happened to me when I broke my collar bone just testing the atv for the B1K,50TH. it was a bummer not racing it, just false start.My roll over totally changed my prespetive on the whole safety thing. For now on its suit, gloves, and neck restraint at all times. It’s crazy but sometimes safety gets overlooked. What I can’t seem to wrap my head around is why here in ca if your in any utv, Atv, Buggy and it’s under 1000cc you need a helmet. But if your in something over 1000cc no helmet is needed. Seems insane to me.
No good in street truck cause airbags. But that would be a great helmet for pitting or race mechanic. Cause its light and you'll still be able to hear and have good visibility. Just a good idea for if your changing tires and the jack fails, so you won't get your skull rung too hard.How about a lightweight bike helmet in a non caged street truck? Seems like something would be better than nothing?
It’s amazing how many people at Moab in UTV’s are not wearing helmets. I would say close to 90% no helmets.
I wear mine all the time, unless Cruzin around the campground or flat areas under 20 mph.
It’s common sense. If your doing something that has a large degree of danger...wear a freaking helmet!
If someone is wearing factory seatbelt 100% agree. With my aftermarket roll cage and four point harness that goes through the seat it’s not physically possible to hit my head on the roll cage. Yes it’s possible for something to protrude into the cage on a roll but not very likely especially on slick rock. It’s also more likely to break your neck with a helmet if your not wearing a neck harness than not wearing one because of the additional weight.
