Know the key differences between each type we offer so that you can choose the correct helmet for your needs:
Why choose a MTB specific helmet?
You will set out on rough terrains like mountains, rocky roads or deserts when mountain biking or MTB. Since you are journeying onto steep and uneven grounds, a mountain full face bike helmet has more safety features than the one you'd use for road cycling because it has to guard your head against rough ground.
When mountain biking, you are more prone to crashing in a more challenging environment. So, you'll find mountain bicycle helmets with a visor, low-cut rear, more coverage and in higher end helmets technology such as MIPS to lessen the initial impact in case of falls and accidents. It has good all-around surface protection since the head can hit the ground at any angle during an unexpected fall.
What are the benefits of using a performance based helmet ?
These helmets are more compact, aerodynamic, well-ventilated and sometimes more lightweight for a leisurely breezy cruise through various streets and pathways. They mostly have a round or ovular shape to support the aerodynamic design.
Since road cycling happens on pavements, most cyclists will wear glasses with a bike helmet. As a result, you don't need visors in urban settings as they narrow one's vision (much more crucial when gliding through hills, descents and corners as in mountain biking).
Road bicycle helmets can absorb and distribute the initial impact. It's more helpful that there is a bit of space to move on the head within the helmet to avoid concentrating the impacts in one area.
Kids' bicycle helmets
Crashes and falls will inevitably happen when your little one learns to ride a bike. You want to prioritise their safety above all else while they are getting the hang of the sport.
