What to get for off-road riders

— Have you been good enough for this list? By the staff of Dirt Wheels —

SCORPION VX-R70 HELMET
Scorpion’s stylish VX-R70 helmet meets and exceeds DOT and ECE helmet standards. In addition to safety, the Scorpion delivers all-day comfort. The TCT composite-shell construction and a dual-density EPS system create a lightweight, feature-rich, no-compromise-performance MX and off-road helmet. Details include corrosion-proof titanium D-rings, a tool-less quick-change chin vent system, shatter-resistant visor and a large goggle eyeport. The helmet has a five-year warranty, is comfortable, handles moisture and is vented for hot weather. The helmet comes in solid colors or with graphics for $189–$199! www.scorpionusa.com

EVANS WATERLESS COOLANT
Evans Cooling Systems, Inc. has a patented technology for the only waterless engine coolant available. The formula provides superior benefits not found with traditional water-based engine coolants. Reducing fuel consumption and emissions, decreasing maintenance costs and contributing to a cleaner environment are all achievable with Evans waterless engine coolant. In our experience, even when the machine does get hot, the Evans coolant doesn’t boil out like other liquids. www.evanscooling.com

PRO ARMOR FIRE EXTINGUISHER MOUNT KIT
Pro Armor makes a slick fire extinguisher mounting bag. The mount is made from durable vinyl and includes two heavy-duty Velcro straps with rubber attached to make sure the fire extinguisher mount does not move around. There’s an easy-access zipper to pull your fire extinguisher out in a hurry should you need it. Installation is a breeze. A First Alert 2-pound fire extinguisher is included for $79.99, or you can just get the mount bag for $31.99. www.proarmor.com

MAXIMA SHOP APRON
If you have anyone in your life that works on their own machinery, they will appreciate the gift off this Maxima heavy-duty canvas-shop apron. It has five pockets, a zippered main pocket and an adjustable shoulder-strap system. The apron should fit just about any individual, and it protects your clothes from grease and grime. The pockets are very handy as well. This is a simple gift but a sure-fire winner at $33.95.

HUNSAKER 5-GALLON QUIK-FILL FUEL JUG
You don’t have to spend big money to fuel your machine quickly. Hunsaker’s 5-gallon Quick-Fill fuel jug is only $59! It is always nice to get a sparkling-clean, new fuel jug as a gift, especially when it works as well as this one. The Hunsaker 5-gallon jug has a huge vent spout that allows fluid to pour quickly and smoothly. The vent doubles as a handle and a spot to lock the jug up. The breather opening in the vent handle also works as a fill location for filling up your jug. The pour spout can be opened up to as large as 3 inches for faster pouring.

EKS BRAND FLAT OUT MIRROR GOGGLE
The $35 Gox Flat Out Mirror goggle is arguably the best-valued goggle around, and it looks fabulous under a Christmas tree! This goggle comes with all the features of EKS’ Gox goggle at a great price. This goggle comes standard with four-layer face foam; is made with thier Poly-Flex frame material; along with their quick-release, anti-fog-coated, polycarbonate-mirrored lenses. If you need a clear lens, EKS has them, or you can buy the Gox Flat Out Series goggle for only $29.95! The Flat Out goggle has all the same features as the Flat Out Mirror goggle, but with fewer color options and a clear lens. www.eksbrand.com

ASSUALT INDUSTRIES STEALTH SERIES MIRROR
Every UTV needs a rear-view mirror, and that goes double for machines with four- or five-point seat belts. One of our favorites is the $84.99 Assault Stealth Series in-cab rear-view mirror. It fits 1.5-, 1.75-, 1.875- (Can-Am Maverick X3) and 2-inch cage tubes. The convex design allows a wide field of view without having an overly large mirror body that restricts forward vision. A tough polymer housing and CNC-machined clamps justify a limited lifetime warranty. The quality, distortion-free convex mirror glass provides a sharp, wide field of view. This is a great gift for folks you want to keep safe! www.assaultind.com

1.) DP BRAKES BRAKE PADS
DP Brakes has brake pads that make a great gift for any of your crazy-about-wheels guys. These are SDP Pro-MX off-road brake pads with high-performance, HH-rated, friction-compound, quick-break-in, no-brake-fade pads with a ceramic heat shield. These were developed with factory race teams, but DP Brakes has pads for all popular quads and UTVs. No matter what you are driving or riding, or what you are doing to wear out your brake pads, DP Brakes has a way to stop you. Prices vary for the different machines and types of pads. www.dp-brakes.com

2.)ENGINE ICE HI-PERFORMANCE COOLANT
Engine Ice Hi-Performance coolant will provide your machine with reliable power and reduced operating temperatures regardless of the terrain you tackle. Modified or stock, all machines benefit from using Engine Ice. Engine Ice Hi-Performance coolant is biodegradable, phosphate-free and non-toxic, typically reducing operating race temperatures and effectively keeping boil-over temperatures to 256 degrees Fahrenheit or less and freeze-up protection to -26 degrees Fahrenheit. The key to horsepower is not losing it! Engine Ice is available in both half-gallon and 5-gallon containers from your favorite powersports dealer.

3.) BARNETT YAMAHA YXZ1000R SXS CLUTCH
Spring Conversion Kit Barnett has added the $146.73 2016–’17 YXZ1000R to its line of Yamaha clutch-spring conversion kits. This kit converts the stock diaphragm-type clutch spring and cast pressure plate to six heavy-duty coil springs and a precision-machined billet-aluminum pressure plate. This provides more controllable, linear clutch engagement and superior durability. Installation is bolt-on with no modifications required. It simply replaces the stock pressure plate/spring assembly and is made in the USA. www.barnettclutches.com

Polaris RZR 2013–’17 XP1K, XP1K 4; 2016–’17 RZR 1000 S; and 2015–’17 RZR 900 owners would love to get this Extreme Metal Products nylon overhead storage bag as a gift.
