Protect your head in style with these helmets from 509
When it comes to producing stylish snowmobile protective gear, 509 takes a back seat to nobody. Here we look at the full lineup of 509 snowmobile helmets.
509 snowmobile helmets combine head-protecting technology with sharp-looking aesthetics. If you are in the market for a new lid, it’s definitely worth checking out what 509 has to offer.
To make your lives easier, we’ve put the entire lineup of 509 snowmobile helmets in one place and take a deep dive into their features and technology.
Tactical Offroad Helmet
The 509 Tactical helmet meets or exceeds DOT and ECE standards, featuring an innovative interlocking liner made from dual-density EPS foam. The outer shell is comprised of durable polycarbonate and sports integrated intake and exhaust vents on the front and rear.
Whereas some helmets compromise comfort for protection or vice versa, the 509 Tactical helmet provides both. Its custom interior ensures a snug fit thanks to its removable liner. This can be easily washed to keep your gear clean.
If you own 509 eye protection, you will be pleased to know that this 509 snowmobile helmet is designed to accommodate the brand’s goggles. The custom eye-port fits perfectly over 509 goggles, so there’s no discomfort while you ride.
The 509 Tactical helmet is available for both men and women, ensuring that you can easily match your gear with friends and family. Six sizes are offered altogether, ranging from XS and going all the way up to 2XL.
509 Altitude 2.0 Helmet
The DOT- and ECE-certified Altitude helmet comes with a Go-Prol camera mount and handy helmet bag to keep the helmet safe when you’re not using it.
Aimed at mountain and crossover snowmobilers, the Altitude provides a comfortable fit thanks to its removable dual-density EPS foam liner and magnetic Fidlock strap buckle. Ventilation is also robust, as the helmet implements upper vents with on/off shutter closure for airflow control.
The single-piece wide-view eye-port is made to perfectly accommodate 509 goggles while providing you with optimal visibility.
Add in a removable Pro-Series breathbox and owners have complete protection and control over how much air comes into the helmet.
Sizes are available for men, women, and children, ensuring that everyone in your family can ride in style.
509 Altitude Carbon Fiber 3K Helmet
The Altitude 2.0 Carbon Fiber offers the same features of the polycarbonate Altitude 2.0, but is built with hand lay-up 3K carbon composite construction. That results in less weight for the rider and added strength.
Like the Altitude 2.0, the carbon version features a Go-Pro camera mount, Fidlock chinstrap closure, upper vents with on/off shutter closure, and a removable Pro-Series breathbox.
You will pay a little more for the carbon fiber version, but if carrying around less weight is important to you (especially on the top of your body), then the Altitude 2.0 carbon fiber is worth checking out.
509 Delta R3 Helmet
Available with with either a polycarbonate or carbon fiber shell, the Delta R3 might just be our favorite of the 509 snowmobile helmets.

Further adding versatility to the R3 is an internal flip-down sun shield, removable cold weather breathbox, and chin curtain.
As with other 509 snowmobile helmets, the R3 is equipped with a removable liner for quick and easy cleaning. The Fidlock clasp makes a return, as well, offering hassle-free functionality when putting on the helmet and taking it off.
The 509 R3 also features a dual-pane clear shield with anti-scratch and anti-fog coating, Pro Series liner and cheekpads, adjustable forehead and chin ventilation ports, and dual density EPS foam.
