In the UK, wearing a cycling helmet still isn't mandatory, but we can't think of a single reason not to do so. As well as being the most important part of your body, how could you ever decide on the frame colour of your new bike if your head was put out of action by a simple fall? Our advice is to wear a cycle helmet whilst you roll, and look splendid doing so with the great selections we have in store right now, whether you ride the road, trails or love the work commute.
Like all cycle clothing and accessories, choosing a cycle helmet is a decision that should be based on how often you ride, and the type of riding you do. Things to consider include comfort (including ventilation), adjustability, coverage and protection and of course style. Our range of Carrera foldable helmets are a popular option amongst urban riders for their comfortable, airy fit but are also favoured by some ouring and road riders looking for a well-ventilated option for longer rides. Smith Optics helmets use innovative materials like Koroyd for enhanced protection and ventilation and are ideal for riders looking for a top drawer option for technical riding.
