The most important consideration when you’re choosing a bike helmet is that it fits properly. If it isn’t sitting correctly on your head, your protection, as well as your will to wear it, will be severely affected, so choose wisely.
You’ll need to select a helmet that suits your riding style, but road helmets can be worn safely on dirt trails and mountain bike helmets can also be worn when you’re on the road.
There are three main types of bike helmets, Recreational, Road, and Mountain Bike. Recreational helmets are economical and provide basic protection, ideal for casual riders. Road bike helmets have been specially designed to be aerodynamic, lightweight, and well-ventilated, and if you’re a mountain biker then you’ll be able to choose from a range of styles, as long as they offer good ventilation. These helmets usually offer extended coverage for the back of your head because you’re more likely to fall backwards than road bikers are.
At Bike Addict we’ve got helmets for women, men, and children and include options from a huge array of top brands, including Bell Helmets, Giro, Leatt®, Merida, and Titan. We also cater for a variety of budgets, so you can look forward to getting a quality piece of equipment that won’t break the bank.
There are many reasons besides basic protection to invest in a good helmet, including setting a good example for the kids who watch you cycle. They’re also a great way for you to show off your own personal style, and let’s face it, when you look good, you’re more likely to get out there pedalling.
