The helmet is designed to protect your head in the event of an accident. Although there is no legislation in the UK to enforce helmet use, helmets have saved thousands of lives and are generally considered an essential piece of kit for any UK cyclist.
Whilst being fitted for your Ride it away bicycle by one of our specialist retailers, it also makes sense to speak to them about helmets. Modern bicycle helmets come in a wide array of different styles, sizes, colours and with lots of different fit options. It is important to get a helmet that fits safely, comfortably and looks good.
You don’t need to spend a lot to get a good helmet. Cheaper helmets are usually certified to the exact same safety standard as more expensive options, but higher-end lids are usually lighter, better ventilated, available in more size options and look better on your head.
