10 things for the ATV/UTV nut in your house
It’s the giving time of year once again and the big guy in the red suit (dude needs a helmet bad) and sleek time-warping sleigh (probably fuel injected) are in preparation mode for that magical night just a few weeks away. So you are not sure what to buy your favorite ATV or UTV enthusiast? Well have no fear because we are here winching you out of the ditch to try and guide you once again with a few things to consider, enthusiasts to enthusiast.
The most common misconception for folks looking to give a gift for an ATV or UTV owner is the fact that they may already have the simple stuff needed to enjoy a good ride. It does not always have to be insanely pricey and it’s the small, more considerate items that often get the most joyous response. So take a look at our list of 10-item gift guide we wish we had ourselves and we guarantee your little dirt rider will love it too!

The CruzTools Econo-Kit M1 is compact and includes the essentials for that trailside repair. With an MSRP of only $64.99 you cannot argue the value of this one.

SENA SMH10 Helmet Intercom
Now I am not sure about you, but I like to talk with my passenger when riding in the wild outdoors. But the issue is you have to yell most of the time and half of the conversation is spent restating what you just said because its just too loud in some machines. Well until now, I never imagined how fun and even more enjoyable it was to actually talk in a calm and non-screaming voice when driving down the trail until I had the chance to try the SENA SMH10 Helmet Intercom. I hooked two of these up and had a great conversation with my co-driver and there’s no way I could put a price on that enjoyment. So if you’re looking for similar experiences, get over to SENA’s website and check out its SMH10 at $379 for a pair of Bluetooth intercom devices.
