More than just a safety precaution, it's necessary to wear a helmet when ripping around in Yamaha's 2017 Pure Sport Side By Side because otherwise your continuous ear-to-ear grin would give way to a mouth full of dirt, bugs and whatever else kicked up off the trail from its knobby 27-inch beadlock wheels.

From fully adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium X2 shocks to its 998cc liquid-cooled 3-cylinder engine, this thing is an all-terrain beast. And as if its sequential paddle-shifted five-speed transmission weren't enough, it also features a heart-thumping Launch System that rockets you forward for quick take-offs.

In other words, if you're looking for a fun toy this summer, you've found it. Starting at $22,400, it'll be available starting in August. Just so your adrenal gland has plenty of fair warning.
