What is the best bike helmet to buy?

Does it matter what bike helmet I buy?

Helmets come in different styles with features designed for specific riding styles. While any style helmet will protect you, the right style helmet will offer benefits in addition to protection that make the ride more enjoyable.

How do I choose a safety bike helmet?

The helmet should fit snugly but not uncomfortably, with your head partially compressing the soft foam pads inside—even before the straps are tightened. Select the size that fits as closely as possible without being uncomfortably tight. Then use the sizing pads, if provided, to fine-tune the fit.

How do I know my helmet size?

SIZING: To measure your head size, wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head. If it moves while wearing, it is too large.
