The right cycle helmets could mean the difference between life and death, so doesn’t it make sense to choose wisely? To that end, here are a few simple tips to ensure you find the right one:
• Get a Good Fit: Fit is paramount when it comes to helmets—it needs to be snug so it doesn’t wobble with the strap fitting closely under your chin—and although it might be slightly more difficult to gauge the fit when you buy online you need to be as accurate as possible in your measurements and don’t be afraid to return it if necessary.
• Choose The Style Carefully: Helmets with rounded shells are best as there won’t be any angles to get caught anywhere should you be involved in an accident, and as for colour you’ll want to go for lighter options (as they can be seen better by other road users) and reflective strips will always come in handy too.
• Strike The Right Balance Between Ventilation and Padding: You want to keep cool with sufficient air vents but you don’t want to sacrifice padding either, so make sure you’ve got the right balance.
• More Expensive Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Better: Whilst you should never go too cheap you don’t want to spend a fortune either, and luckily with most expensive helmets you tend to be paying for the name and the additional comfort rather than better protection.
Now you know how to choose cycling helmets you need to find a supplier to suit, and Tweaks should always be considered. With a great range of quality helmets at great prices you’ll soon find one that fits the bill, giving you the peace of mind you need.
