If all you do is creep around private property in your Polaris Ranger Crew, you might find that helmets are overly excessive. However, UTV helmets are one of those dual-function accessories that have multiple uses. The most common reason why side-by-side riders wear helmets is obviously for safety. But if you want to stay cool and keep dust out of your face, air pumper helmets can be worn. And if you want an easy way to communicate or listen to music, audio helmets are available. While air pumper helmets require an entire air pumper system -- including hoses, air pumpers, etc. -- all an audio helmet requires is something to sync with. It could be your phone or MP3 player, or it could be a Polaris Ranger Crew intercom or communication radio, it doesn't matter. Using technology like voice-operated exchange (VOX) switches and other voice-initiated commands, you can be in complete control of your devices without the need to lift a finger. Some audio helmets let you play, pause, and adjust the volume of your music, and with others, you can instigate as well as terminate phone calls on your cell phone. It's the 21st century, and past time for you to get the latest tech in your side-by-side helmet.

Your Polaris Ranger Crew helmet could be equipped with all the latest technology and look completely badass from the outside, but if it's not comfortable to wear, chances are you'll rarely use it. Even riders that don't generally don helmets can find a use for audio helmets. Participating in a benefit ride might require you to wear a helmet, and in many states, drivers and riders under the age of 18 must be wearing helmets at all times while inside a moving UTV. So if you're going to be forced to plop a brain bucket on, you may as well get one that plays music and allows you to communicate. Be it a full-face bluetooth helmet with built in helmet speakers and a mic, or a solid half helmet that can be used with earbuds or behind-the-head headsets, for the best helmets with the coolest gadgets built in, a Polaris Ranger Crew owner can do no better than the options at Everything Polaris Ranger.
