Although Mountain Bike Helmets were something to be tolerated, rather than enjoyed - but thanks to advancements in both design and technology, helmets have never provided more protection than they do now, they have never been so comfortable, and as an added bonus - they look better than ever.
Depending upon the type of cycling that you do, different helmets will suit your requirements - and even within the mountain biking world, different helmets are required for different types of mountain biking, a downhill mountain biking helmet for example, is different to an enduro mountain biking helmet - so typically, riders will need more than one helmet if they are riding across different disciplines.
If you spend most of your time smashing downhill trails, and a relatively small amount of time riding cross country, then a full face mountain bike helmet will likely be the number one choice for you. These helmets not only protect the head from impact, but also protect the face thanks to a chinbar, which on some models is fixed and on other models, is removable. These helmets also have features including goggles and action camera compatibility. Although some cross country riders choose to wear full face helmets, typically half shell mountain bike helmets are preferred by riders tackling cross country trails and rides, because of the increased comfort and visibility.
Half Shell Mountain Bike Helmets are massively versatile, and as well as being the perfect helmet for typical off road mountain biking, they work equally well on the commute and when simply pottering about on a bike. These helmets cover the top, side and back of the head - and in the most recent designs, these helmets cover more of the back and sides of the head than ever before.
These days, mountain bike helmets are also more comfortable and more adjustable than ever. A proper fitting helmet should feel snug, and the scalp should move with the helmet if you move the helmet. To maximise comfort, all mountain bike helmets on sale today, have ventilation built in which is usually adjustable - meaning you can keep your head at the right temperature depending upon the weather, as well as how hard you are riding.
The icing on the cake is the sheer amount of designs and colour schemes which are available across mountain bike helmets - meaning you can find the perfect mountain bike helmet for your style, with many customers choosing to match the colour of their helmet with the colour of their bike.
