Regardless of where you sit on the wearing a bike helmet VS not wearing a bike helmet, you cannot deny that it’s the aim of cycle helmet manufacturers to design and manufacture road bike helmets which protect the head in case of an accident. In the process of creating these helmets, helmet manufacturers also create helmets which are comfortable to wear, aid aerodynamics and performance, as well as look good.
All road bike helmets on the market do meet minimum requirements set out in law, with the more expensive the road bike helmet - the greater the design and construction. More expensive helmets are more aerodynamic, will typically have been designed and tested using a wind tunnel, and will be constructed from the lightest and strongest materials.
As well as being designed to protect the head, cycling helmets are ventilated - often with adjustable ventilation, so you can adjust and regulate the temperature of your head depending upon the weather, as well as the intensity of exercise.
Although all of the above cycling helmets can be classified as ‘road cycling helmets’ the design of the helmet does vary. There are helmets designed to be worn by road cyclists looking for the very best in aerodynamic designs and comfort, and these helmets need to be comfortable enough to be worn on long distances, there are also leisure helmets - which tend to be copies of the more expensive helmets within the collection.
At the more serious end of the spectrum, there are Aero Helmets as well as Time Trial & Triathlon Helmets. Aero helmets typically have less ventilation than standard road helmets, and are also heavier - owing to their design, which has been optimised for aerodynamic performance. Time Trial Helmets take this to another level, and have a pointy back - which has been designed to maximise air flow and performance.
Above, you can find our full range of road bike helmets - including helmets designed for women and children. There are a ton of helmets available within the range, from manufacturers such as Endura, HJC, Kask and Scott. The range encompasses a mass of designs to suit everyone, and there’s plenty of colour schemes to choose from, allowing you to co-ordinate (or not) with your road bike.
