Your helmet’s primary function should be to safeguard your head in case of an accident; however, it must also provide optimal comfort.

To find your ideal size, take measurements of your head circumference (using a flexible tape measure just above your eyebrows) and compare this measurement with our product pages’ size charts.


Helmets serve the primary function of protecting riders against head impact, so in order to effectively absorb shockwaves. Most helmets feature either ABS or polycarbonate as their outer shell material and EPS foam as their inner layer material.

Ventilation is an integral component to comfort and safety. A poorly ventilated helmet can accumulate sweat and lead to heat exhaustion which is both dangerous and performance impairing, while an adequately vented helmet wicks away moisture to minimize bacteria growth and odor issues.

Additional factors to keep in mind for comfort include a helmet’s size, shape and features such as rear hair ports that accommodate long locks without impacting fit or protection of the helmet. It is also crucial that chin buckle and straps fit comfortably on both your face and neck – too tight straps or buckles may cause discomfort, even pain, so it is crucial that they fit comfortably against your jaw bone and provide adequate support.


To maximize protection during a crash, the optimal helmet weight must be as light as possible. A good helmet absorbs an impact by spreading out force over its entire surface area; heavier helmets would distribute impact more unevenly.

Weight plays an integral part in its ventilation capabilities. If you plan on engaging in intense riding or racing activities, an aerodynamically designed helmet may help minimize wind resistance and improve airflow.

Like shoes, bike helmets vary significantly across brands and sizes can even vary within an individual brand. To select the appropriate helmet size for you, measure the circumference of your head using a soft tape measure, using manufacturer size charts to select an ideal helmet size; an ideal helmet will sit flat against your forehead without tilting back, with its foremost lip resting just a hair above eyebrows for full protection against forehead wrinkles and bumps.


Bike helmets are intended to offer protection in the event of an accident, so when selecting one for yourself it should meet stringent safety standards first and foremost.

When comparing different helmet models, it’s worthwhile considering features like:

An accurate fit is key to comfort and safety. Use a sewing tape or tailor’s tape to measure your head circumference two fingers above your eyebrows in the front. From this measurement, use the brand’s helmet size chart and choose the model closest in shape to your head. Once fitted, give the helmet a shake to make sure there are no discomfort spots; if necessary tighten retention straps more securely. You should also consider purchasing one equipped with red rear lights or integrated rear lights so as to signal other road users of your presence when riding in low visibility conditions – this feature could come in particularly handy when riding in low visibility conditions such as fog or reduced visibility environments.


Even the best helmet technology won’t do its job if it doesn’t fit correctly, which is why most brands provide size charts to help find your ideal one. In addition, some have tightening mechanisms which keep their inner cradle/shell snug against your head when trying on a helmet; look out for any pressure points which indicate it might not be appropriate in shape or size.

A bike helmet’s primary function is to safeguard the head in case of a crash, and finding the ideal helmet for yourself can make or break an enjoyable day out on the road. Recreational riders, everyday commuters and racing enthusiasts will all find something suitable. Take into consideration your riding type, budget and certifications to select an ideal model – then focus on adding stylish colors or cool accessories!
