Essential Snowmobile Helmets

A good snowmobile helmet is the most important piece of safety gear a sledder can own. Helmets protect the head from trauma and can literally be the difference between life and death in the event of a snowmobile accident. There are two main snowmobile helmet styles to consider – full face and open face.

Full face snowmobile helmets offer the most protection since they cover the entire head including the chin and face. The outer shell is usually made of advanced polycarbonate or carbon fiber plastics for maximum impact resistance. They feature a visor to protect the eyes and integrate venting for airflow. Full face helmets provide both warmth and safety for aggressive riders.

Open face snowmobile helmets leave the face exposed while protecting the top and back of the head. They often incorporate a breath deflector and lift up visor to reduce wind blast in the eyes. Open face helmets are preferred by snowmobilers that don’t ride aggressively since they provide good visibility and ventilation. They can be combined with goggles and face masks for full protection.

When choosing a snowmobile helmet as a gift, consider the rider’s style and preferences. Look for helmets that meet DOT or Snell safety certifications and include features like dual lens visors, breath deflectors, venting, heated shields, Bluetooth, and audio. Popular brands like HJC, Castle X, 509, Klim, and Ski-Doo make excellent snowmobile helmets. Prices range from $100 for basic open face models up to $600+ for premium full face helmets with all the options.

Snowmobile Goggles for the Slopes

Eye protection is equally as critical as helmets when speeding through snow on a sled. Snowmobile goggles shield the eyes from exposure to freezing winds, snow, ice, and bright glare. Good snow goggle lenses are made of anti-fog materials with UV protection. Most feature double paned thermal glass or polycarbonate lenses with anti-fog treatments.

Interchangeable lenses allow riders to customize their goggles for varying light and weather conditions. Clear or amber tinted lenses work well for night riding. Mirrored lenses reduce glare on sunny days. Variable tinted lenses automatically adjust light transmission in changing conditions. Look for goggles with spare lenses which can be swapped out quickly as needed.

Goggle frames should have ample ventilation to prevent lens fogging. Foam padding around the goggles creates a comfortable sealed barrier against wind and debris. An extra wide elastic strap keeps goggles securely in place on helmets. Some snow goggles include bonus lenses, carrying cases, and alternative strap configurations. Popular brands like Oakley, Smith, and Spy offer excellent snow goggle choices from $50 to $250.

Face Protection from Balaclavas and Neck Gaiters

Along with goggles, some type of face mask or neck gaiter is recommended for snowmobiling to protect exposed skin from frostbite. Face masks and gaiters shield the vulnerable areas around the nose, cheeks, mouth, chin, and neck. They add warmth while blocking wind and snow.

Many styles are available from simple porous neoprene masks to full hooded balaclavas. For snowmobiling, look for face covers made from insulating fabrics that also wick moisture to prevent clamminess. Spandex, polyester, wool, fleece, and silk blends work well. Thin options can be layered under helmets while thicker masks may require sizing up on head gear.

Half masks cover just the nose and mouth while full masks extend under the chin and ears. Neck gaiters slide over the head and can be pulled up over the nose or worn around the neck when not needed. Hooded balaclavas provide full coverage around the head, face, and neck. Brands like Under Armour, Seirus, and Smartwool sell quality face masks and gaiters priced $15 to $40.

Snowmobile Gloves for Warmth

Along with feet, hands take the brunt of exposure and temperature extremes when snowmobiling. Finding a pair of well-insulated and weatherproof snowmobile gloves is essential to keep hands comfortable and functional. The ideal snowmobile gloves allow operation of clutches and controls while providing warmth, protection, and dexterity.

Look for gloves with a durable synthetic or leather outer shell that blocks wind and moisture. Waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex linings work well. The palm and fingers should have reinforced stitching with extra padding for grip and vibration absorption.

Insulation like PrimaLoft and Thinsulate provide warmth without bulk while wicking moisture. For the coldest conditions, gloves with removable inner liners allow adjusting insulation. Long gauntlet cuffs seal out snow. Reflective accents, touchscreen compatibility, and squeegees for goggle cleaning are bonus features.

Heated gloves take cold weather protection a step farther. Integrated battery powered heating elements keep the entire hand and fingers toasty. Brands like Hestra, FXR, Klim, and Heat Holders offer excellent snowmobile gloves ranging from $50 to $400 for battery heated models.

Snowmobile Boots for Traction and Warmth

Along with hands, feet bear the brunt of winter’s cold when riding a sled. Snowmobile boots need to be fully waterproof yet breathable. High traction soles with deep lugs give stability when walking on snow and ice. Feet need insulation from freezing temperatures and protection from the elements.

Most snowmobile boots have a rugged synthetic leather or ballistic nylon outer shell that repels water. Rubber lower soles provide traction while heel and toe caps add reinforcement. The boots should be cushioned for comfort yet firm enough for operating foot controls.

Boots filled with 200g to 400g Thinsulate insulation are ideal for keeping feet warm without bulk. Removable insoles allow air drying liners after use. Bungee and buckle closures allow a snug fit over thick snow pants. Brands like Baffin, Sorel, and Alpinestars make quality snowmobile boots from $100 to $300.

Snowmobile Jackets and Bibs

Along with helmets and gloves, a good snowmobile jacket and bib set ranks as essential apparel. Snowmobile outerwear needs to be insulated, waterproof, and rugged enough to provide protection while riding. Yet it also needs to allow flexibility, ventilation, and comfort over hours in the saddle.

Top snowmobile jackets use materials like Gore-Tex and HyVent to provide waterproofing along with breathability. Durable nylon or polyester outer shells resist abrasions from gear and branches. The inner insulated lining should utilize PrimaLoft, Heatseeker, or down.

Look for jackets with vents for airflow and moisture control. Wind flaps, snug wrists, zippered pockets, waist adjusters, and hoods all boost comfort and protection. For visibility, bright colors with reflective accents are recommended. Taller jackets prevent gaps between pants and helmets.

Bib snowmobile pants provide full coverage and weatherproofing for the legs. They allow layering base and mid layers underneath while sealing out the elements. Suspenders, reinforced knees, side zips, and boot gaiters optimize function. Brands like Castle X, Klim, and FXR make quality snowmobile jackets and bib sets from $300 up past $1,000.

Snowmobile Base Layers

Base layer clothing worn next to the skin forms the foundation for snowmobile wear. Synthetic and merino wool base layers wick moisture away from the body while providing warmth even when wet. They help regulate body temperature and block wind while allowing good mobility.

Polyester, nylon, silk, and wool fabrics like Under Armour ColdGear, SmartWool, and Helly Hansen make excellent base layer sets. Crew neck tops and full length bottoms provide coverage. Lightweight and midweight base layers can be layered together for additional insulation.

Moisture wicking silk and merino wool bases feel soft and comfortable directly on the skin. Polyester and nylon athletic-style bases dry quickly if wet and resist odors. Cotton bases like Under Armour HeatGear are also popular for snowmobiling. High quality base layers make great snowmobile gifts.

Snowmobile Mid Layers for Insulation

Worn over base layers, snowmobile mid layers provide additional insulation and weather protection. Fleece jackets, softshell pants, hoodies, and insulated pants work well for mid layer snowmobile clothing.

Polyester fleece jackets trap heat while allowing good airflow and range of motion. Popular brands like The North Face, Patagonia, and Columbia make quality fleece. Softshell jackets and pants use stretchy woven fabrics for lightweight weather resistance and breathability.

Thick cotton, wool, or polyester hoodies are ideal mid layers for the upper body. Synthetic insulated ski pants can be comfortably worn under shell bibs in frigid conditions. Mid layers also wick moisture and dry quickly.

Snowmobile Socks and Boots

Along with base and mid layers, proper snowmobile socks boost comfort and warmth inside boots. The best socks for snowmobiling are made of merino wool or synthetic wool blends. Materials like SmartWool and Thermal Pro utilize wool for warmth with polyester to wick moisture.

Cushioned snowmobile socks protect feet and minimize chafing inside boots. Lightweight wool socks can be layered for additional insulation. Over-the-calf styles stay up and provide ankle support. Brands like Heat Holders, DXR, and Hot Chillys make a variety of snowmobile socks for men and women.

To keep feet warm around the sled, waterproof winter boots make an excellent gift. Look for PAC style boots rated for cold and snow. Rubber lower soles, 3M Thinsulate insulation, and cushioned insoles provide comfort and warmth for long days riding. Popular brands like Baffin, Sorel, and Kamik offer winter boots from $100 to $200.

Hats, Neck Gaiters and Balaclavas

Along with jackets and gloves, keeping the head, face and neck warm is crucial when snowmobiling. Hats, helmets liners, neck gaiters, face masks and balaclavas make great accessories for the snowmobiler in your life.

Wool, fleece and polyester winter knit hats provide insulation while staying moisture wicking and fast drying. Neck gaiters can be pulled up to cover the nose and face as needed. Fleece or neoprene balaclavas offer full coverage for the head and neck.

Face masks that integrate with helmets and goggles while blocking wind and ventilation are ideal. Brands like Seirus and Under Armour sell face masks, gaiters and balaclavas priced from $15 to $40. Combine them with warm, comfortable hats for full facial protection from the elements when out riding sleds.

Snowmobile GPS for Navigation

Navigating unfamiliar and remote snow covered terrain can be challenging. Mounted snowmobile GPS units make excellent accessories for sled enthusiasts. Quality GPS systems designed specifically for snowmobiling include large glove-friendly color touchscreens with topographical mapping overlays optimized for snow terrain.

Popular models from Garmin like the Montana and GPSMAP 86i integrate sensors to indicate speed, elevation, incline, temperature and compass headings. Routes, waypoints and tracks can be pre-planned or recorded while riding. Bluetooth and satellite connectivity options provide guidance and monitoring even in areas without cellular signals.

Wired or wireless GPS mounts keep the units safely secured to handlebars yet easily viewable while navigating trails. Weatherproof cases and bright displays allow use with snowmobile gloves and goggles. Prices range from $300 to $650 for rugged snowmobile oriented GPS navigation from Garmin and Polaris.

Two-Way Radios for Communication

When riding in groups through remote snowy areas, maintaining communication is important for coordination and safety. Snow conditions rapidly change trail conditions and visibility. Two-way radios tuned to the same channels allow sledders in a group to always talk to each other wirelessly over miles.

Long range two-way radios designed for powersports with helmet speaker/mics allow talking without removing gloves or stopping. Channels, privacy codes, and radio IDs can be matched for group communication. Handheld and handlebar mounted units with large buttons are easy to operate while riding.

Quality snowmobile radios have ranges up to 20+ miles and come with rechargeable lithium batteries. Popular models from companies like Midland and Cobra are waterproof, rugged and optimized for snowmobile use. Helmet speaker/mic kits provide audio without distraction. Two-way radios start around $60 for a single unit and $200 for a multi-pack kit.

Helmet Communication Systems

For solo riders or small groups, Bluetooth helmet communication systems are an alternative to two-way radios. These integrated units allow hands-free calling, bike-to-bike intercom, and smartphone connectivity.

System components include helmet Bluetooth headsets, an intercom control box, speakers, microphones and charging cables. Some systems like the Cardo Packtalk Bold allow connecting up to 15 riders in an intercom network while riding.

Features include JBL speakers for Hi-Fi sound, natural voice operation, and smartphone integration for GPS, music and communication. Advanced noise cancellation ensures clear audio even at high speeds. Wireless ranges extend up to 1.2 miles between paired units. Helmet communication systems from leading brands like Cardo and Sena range from $200 to $600 for multi-rider kits.

Snowmobile Covers and Storage Bags

When not in use, snowmobiles need protection from the elements. A well-made snowmobile cover prevents damage from sun, snow, rain, and dirt between rides. Soft fabric covers are lightweight and quick to put on, while harder shelters provide more security.

Look for covers made of heavy duty 300D or 600D ripstop polyester, PVC coated polyester, or vinyl materials. Covers should fully enclose the entire sled with only the studs sticking through for tie-downs. Elastic hem cords deliver a tight custom fit.

Trailerable snowmobile covers allow sheltering sleds while hauling. Storage bags help protect seats and components. Look for weatherproof, tear resistant covers from brands like Extrem, Red Square, Polaris, and Nelson Rigg priced $50 to $200.

Snowmobile Lifts and Dollies

Transporting, storing and working on snowmobiles requires getting them up off the ground. Snowmobile lifts and dollies make moving sleds around a garage or shop much easier for maintenance and storage.

Scissor style lift tables raise the entire snowmobile for access to the track, skis and underbody. They allow lifting machines up to 1000lbs via a foot pump or electric power. Roller style dollies with straps secure the sled so it can be maneuvered around like a wheeled cart.

Brands like Black Widow, StarLift and Kimpex have reasonably priced snowmobile lifts and dollies starting around $250. They make maintenance and repairs safer and easier. Moving dollies help organize offseason storage. Lifts and dollies are great tools to add to any snowmobiler’s garage.

Snowmobile Tie-Downs and Ramps

Transporting snowmobiles to the trails requires securing them safely to trailers. Tie-down straps specifically designed for sleds simplify mounting and restraint during transport. Ratchet style straps with padded hooks allow quick and tight fastening down to trailers without scratching or damage.

Trailer ramps for loading allow easily guiding snowmobiles on and off trailers. Look for ramps with rungs or traction coating to prevent slipping. Solid one-piece designs are more durable than folding two-piece ramps. Steel, aluminum and plastic ramps rated for heavy use range from 5 to 12 feet long.

Trailerable sled decks with integrated tie-downs make loading and unloading simple. Deck mounting kits, loading winches and spreader bars are other useful snowmobile transport accessories. Brands like Black Widow, Trac-Grabber and BikeMaster have quality tie-downs, ramps and decks starting around $50.

Snowmobile Tracks and Paddle Choices

Replacement snowmobile tracks make excellent upgrades to improve performance in certain conditions. Stock tracks work well for general riding, but larger paddles and lug heights boost deep snow flotation. Shorter tracks and paddle designs enhance trail responsiveness.

Woody’s and Camso are leading track brands making replacement tracks for most major sled models. Simply provide the make, model and year to select the right replacement track. Consider lug height, length and paddle style based on primary riding terrain.

Tracks usually run $250 to $650 plus installation costs. Combine them with carbides, studs or cleats to further enhance traction in icy areas. Improved aftermarket tracks make great upgrades for avid snowmobilers.

Snowmobile Exhaust Systems

The exhaust plays an important role in sled horsepower, throttle response and sound. Aftermarket snowmobile exhaust systems provide performance improvements along with a more aggressive tone. Two-stroke and four-stroke snowmobiles see gains from upgraded exhaust mods.

Complete exhaust replacements maximize performance benefits. Components like stainless steel headers, high flow mufflers, and tuned catalytic converters all boost engine output. Lighter weight aluminum and titanium exhaust components save weight while adding power.

Popular sled exhaust brands include Two Brothers Racing, MBRP, Akrapovič, and FMF Racing. Slip-on mufflers start around $200 while full exhaust system kits run $500 to $1000 or more. Professional installation is recommended unless the sledder is mechanically inclined. Exhaust upgrades make great birthdays or Christmas gifts.

Snowmobile Suspension Kits

Stock snowmobile suspensions are designed for general use, but upgraded kits tailored for specific riders and conditions can optimize handling, control, and bump absorption. Complete suspension kits and shocks make great upgrades for performance oriented sled enthusiasts.

Fox, KYB, Elka, and Ride Engineering specialize in snowmobile shock and suspension components to boost stability, traction, and comfort. Front suspension kits improve steering and predictability. Rear kits enhance tracking, flotation, and minimize bucking over bumpy terrain.

Look for kits dialed to the sled make, model, year, and riding style – trail, mountain, racing, etc. Springs, torsion bars, shocks, and skid plates can all be upgraded for enhanced performance. The rear suspension takes the most abuse, so improving the skid frame and shocks noticeably improves rough trail capability.

Budget $600 to $1500 for complete front and rear suspension kit upgrades. Combine them with a performance clutch kit for a complete enhanced sled set up ready to tame rugged backcountry trails and deep snow.

Snowmobile Clutch Kits

Upgraded snowmobile clutch kits allow fine tuning throttle response, torque, and RPM ranges for specific riding needs. Trail and off-trail sleds see real performance gains with modified clutches. Complete kits include primary, secondary, and drive components.

Clutch components like springs, helixes, weights, and ramps can be mixed and matched to create custom clutch settings for drag, towing, mountains, or racing. This optimizes power delivery for different conditions and riding styles.

Leading clutch brands like EPI, Team, Dalton, and Speedwerx offer clutch kits for most major sled brands. Budget $400 to $800 for full top and bottom end clutch kits. Factor another $200 for professional dyno clutch tuning and installation if the recipient isn’t mechanically inclined. Upgraded clutches make an excellent gift for avid riders.

Snowmobile Gauges and Displays

Monitoring key engine parameters while riding leads to better maintenance and performance. Digital snowmobile gauges and displays provide customizable data like speed, RPM, temperature, and voltage. They allow tracking vitals to optimize tuning and prevent over-rev damage.

Handlebar mounted displays present data clearly while riding. Low temperature LCDs are readable wearing goggles and gloves. Bluetooth options allow syncing data to smartphones. Warning lights indicate out of range values.

Custom tuning and engine management gauges from Dash Designs, Speedhut, and Trail Tech range from $100 to $500. Integrated GPS, mapping, phone linking, and video recording displays are also available. Electronic gauges make great tech-oriented gifts.

Snowmobile Auxiliary Lighting

Riding trails in low light or night conditions requires bright lighting to see the terrain ahead. Auxiliary snowmobile headlights and floodlights improve visibility and safety. High power LED and HID lights put out far more illumination than weak stock headlamps.

Small LED pods can be mounted around the sled to light up dark areas. HID projector beams mount to handlebars for distance lighting down trails. Flexible light bars with multiple LED elements can be fixed anywhere additional lighting is needed.

Kits include mounting brackets and wiring harnesses for straightforward installation. Brands like Xprite, North45, and Anzo make reliable auxiliary lighting in all configurations at reasonable prices ranging from $50 to $300 or more for a full setup.

Heated Snowmobile Visor Kits

Riding snowmobiles in freezing temperatures causes goggle fogging when face masks direct breath upwards. Battery powered heated snowmobile visor kits help eliminate fogging and icing in cold conditions. Integrated heating wires in the lenses or visors prevent condensation.

Heated shields connect to 12V DC snowmobile batteries. Adjustable temperature controllers allow setting just enough heat to remain fog free, typically +40 to +80 degrees. Automatic shutoff timers prevent overheating.

Leading brands like Kolpin, 509, andceed make heated visor kits with anti-fog heated shield lenses for popular snow goggles. Expect prices in the $150 to $300 range. Heated visors make perfect gifts for snowmobilers in extremely cold areas.

Heated Snowmobile Grips & Gloves

Fighting frozen fingers hampers riding comfort and control. Heated snowmobile grips warm the hands from the inside out. Integrated heating elements in the rubber grips circulate warmth in the palm and fingers. Waterproof designs can operate in wet conditions.

Grip heat controllers mount within easy thumb reach on the handlebars. Standard voltage grips run off the sled’s 12V battery. Rechargeable models have built-in lithium-ion batteries to power heating independent of the snow machine.

Heated gloves take this a step further by putting heat inside gloves and mittens. Models like MobileWarm incorporate micro-heated panels in the gloves powered by discreet battery packs. Heated gear provides comfort on those extra frigid days.

Snowmobile Survival Gear

When riding in the remote winter backcountry, carrying emergency survival supplies in case of breakdowns or accidents is critical. A well-stocked snowmobile survival kit can be a lifesaver by enabling starting fires, providing first aid, and signaling for help.

Waterproof trailside kits include necessities like fire starters, blankets, first aid, compass, flashlight, calories/protein bars, knife, cordage, flares, shelter, and mining tools. Smaller handlebar mounted pouches hold essentials for short rides. Larger packs can sustain longer periods if stuck in emergencies.

Brands specializing in winter survival gear like Adventure Medical Kits, Coghlans, and Lifeline sell purpose-built snowmobile survival kits from around $50 to $200 for the most complete bags. They allow peace of mind when riding far from assistance.

Avalanche Safety Gear

For snowmobilers that ride in steep alpine areas, carrying proper avalanche safety gear for backcountry use is a must. Standard equipment includes an electronic transceiver, collapsible probe pole, and folding shovel.

Transceivers worn under jackets transmit unique beacon locator signals if buried, allowing other riders to quickly pinpoint the location using their own receivers. Lightweight probes allow probing the snowpack to locate victims once narrowed down. Durable metal avalanche shovels provide digging ability to uncover riders in minutes before asphyxiation.

Leading brands like Pieps, Backcountry Access (BCA), and Ortovox sell quality complete avalanche rescue kits from $350 to $600. Taking avalanche safety courses to practice with the gear is highly recommended. The gear provides a chance of survival if caught in a slide.

Helmet Cameras for Recording Rides

Capturing adventure rides on video makes for great memories. Helmet cameras designed for motorsports use allow recording fast-paced snowmobile runs. Features optimized for powersports include image stabilization, wide viewing angles, and remote control capability.

Waterproof construction rated for subzero temperatures allows use in snowy conditions. Secure mounts attach cameras to helmets while keeping adding minimal profile. Long battery life enables recording multi-hour rides. Voice control allows on-the-fly recording commands.

Popular action cameras like those from GoPro, Insta360, and DJI range from $200 to $500 with all required mounts and remotes. Large capacity memory cards provide maximum footage capacity. Video backed up on a computer allows enjoyment long after the ride ends.

Snowmobile Chemical Hand Warmers

For emergency warmth or supplemental hand heating, chemical hand warmers provide hours of warmth from a single use packet. They create a chemical reaction that generates safe heat. The non-toxic packets remain warm up to 10 hours, even in frigid conditions.

Look for larger XL body and toe warmers to place inside boots and suits as needed. Tuck hand warmers inside gloves or mittens to keep fingers toasty on long cold rides. Brands like HotHands, Zippo, and Little Hotties sell multi-packs of hand and body warmers for around $1 per packet.

Snowmobile novelty gifts can definitely be worthwhile depending on the rider’s interests. Mini sleds, mugs, wall art, books, DVDs, and apparel with sled graphics make great supplemental gift ideas for enthusiasts that appreciate snowmobile collectibles and decor.
