Choosing the best helmet for you

Choosing a new bike helmet can seem like a daunting task, especially with so many options to choose from. To make sure you get the right one for you, we have decided to take a closer look at some of the fantastic helmets we have available, and why they may be the best choice for you. 

Mountain Biking

When it comes to mountain bike helmets there are many different designs, each catering to different levels of rider. 

For beginner and intermediate MTB fanatics, the best option is a maskless half-shell helmet, and the Specialized Tarmac is the ideal choice. Featuring ample ventilation and seamless integration for sunglass or googles, the Tarmac delivers on both comfort and functionality. 

If you’re a little more experienced on the trails, you may be looking for something with more all-round protection. If that sounds like you then look no further than the Gambit. This stylish lid provides outstanding performance through advanced engineering. 

Road Cycling

On the road, it’s all about aerodynamics. Where can you save a second? Or even a minute? 

The Specialized S-Works Evade 3 is the product of countless hours of testing in the wind tunnel and features a rear ‘diffuser’, an unparalleled drag reduction and ventilation system. This ultra-lightweight helmet will have you flying down descents and besting your friends’ Strava records in no time. 

Although we have invested heavily in aerodynamics we haven’t scrimped on the comfort. The Evade 3 is one of our best fitting helmets yet. The occipital base adjustment helps to optimise the fit to each individual’s head. 

With MIPS Node Air Technology fully integrated, the completely re-engineered and reinvented Evade is comfortable, fast and safe. 

Fitness Cycling 

Don’t think we have forgotten about those who are less interested in shredding it downhill, or searching for optimum speed on the road. 

If simple, sleek designs are your thing than the Specialized Mode may be the right helmet for you. Featuring a smooth dome-like design, the Mode has been made to look good. This little helmet is not only stylish but is packed with amazing technology such as integrated ventilation and personalised sizing that ensures your daily commute is ridden in comfort. 

For the kids

Most youngsters don’t care about fancy technology and high performance; they care about fun, and the colourful Mio MIPS is the perfect helmet for this. Aside from its vibrant design, this helmet is also a great way to protect your child’s head during falls on their bikes. 

The Mio MIPS features a clever comfortable magnetic buckle that prevents pinching. There are also no compromises on safety when it comes to the Mio MIPS, its moulded shell gives the helmet a strong foundation that can protect even the clumsiest of kids.

So, whether you’re tackling the trails, conquering the climbs, or simply commuting to work there are a selection of options when it comes to choosing the best helmet for you. We have plenty of great models on display in our stores and our friendly staff will always be happy to help you find your ideal helmet. You can locate your closest store by clicking here
