Top Navigation Gear Review – Join The 509 Evolution

That’s what I did when I slipped on the 509 Evolution helmet. Almost everything about the helmet is designed for snowmobiling. The first thing that caught my attention with these helmets were the graphics. This is by far the best looking helmet without getting a custom built airbrush job. The second eye catcher is the tight seal between the helmet and goggles. The gaps usually found by your temples where you usually get frostbite; don’t worry about that with this setup.

The 509 helmet in comparison with most others in the industry feels much lighter. I would say that it’s the closest thing to carbon fiber without it being that. If I could change one part of this helmet, I would try to add some foam by the slots where your ears fit into. The biggest reason is to reduce the wind noise. I know I’ve lost hearing due to wind noise over the past two decades.


If your looking for that newest and greatest helmet, look no further than the 509 Evolution. Check them out on their web site.

    Why do I get “Overstack at line:1715” everytime I’m on your site? Do I have a virus, or are you having problems?

      We haven’t found the offending plugin, but it has to do with IE8. You don’t have a virus. I use Google Chrome, Firefox, and IE9 and the error doesn’t seem to pop up. We will test some more, but try Firefox or Chrome and see if that helps.
