Bicycle Helmets



Bicycle Helmets:
A fashion statement or protective wear?

Buying a bicycle helmet is not a mean feat these days as the selection takes over a 20' wall space in the average bicycle parts and repair shop. With all this selection it is hard to know what is the right choice.

Go for quality first as you only may get one chance to test its protective features. Look for certification labels on any and all bicycle helmets before you even think about a purchase.

Sizing and fitting are equally important especially for infant/toddler bicycle helmets. If you look around your neighbourhood, I'd bet 90% of the child's bicycle helmets are hanging to the back of their heads. For a frontal over the handle bar fall this is going to do little to protect their vital organs.

Be aware that many, especially lower valued bicycle helmets are made of high density foam of one sort or another. Think of your camping cooler. If a bicycle helmet gets left on the dash of a closed car, the intense heat can deteriote the foam so be aware of some of the issue related to care and inspection of your helmet.

As you're headed out the door on holidays it's also not a bad idea to do a search on bicycle helmet laws in your area of travel if you are hauling your bicycles.

You can't go wrong checking out two of the largers manufacturers: Bell Bicycle Helmets and Giro Sports.
