PROS AND CONS OF BICYCLE HELMETS
Legislation about the wearing of bicycle helmets varies around the world, with some countries and continents making the use of helmets compulsory and other areas having no laws at all. A major study of bike helmet use around the world from more than 64,000 cyclists has found bicycle helmets reduce the risks of a serious head injury by nearly 70%. However, it's worth understanding that bike helmets don't offer total protection, and there is evidence linking the wearing of helmets with excessive risk taking. Ride safely with Anaconda road helmets, mountain bike helmets and kids bike helmets designed for safe outdoor activities.
WHICH BICYCLE HELMET IS BEST FOR ME?
Bike helmets are designed to protect riders, with several types of high quality cycling helmets available at Anaconda. Australian conditions can get hot, so it is worth considering a bike helmet that provides airflow as well as comfort. Kids bike helmet options are popular at Anaconda, while matte black classic helmets are in vogue for making a streetwise fashion statement. While all bicycle helmets sold by reputable retailers will confirm to the legislation, spending a little more may give you a "lid" that is lighter, and more breathable. The retention system often becomes more comfortable on a more expensive cycling helmet, too.
For competitive cyclists, aerodynamics can also be a concern. More expensive helmets will be wind tunnel tested, and will often provide a watt-saving figure as to how much energy can be retained thanks to the improved aerodynamics of the helmet.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I LOOK OUT FOR WHEN CHOOSING A BIKE HELMET?
When researching bike helmets, you will see a lot of information on the term MIPS (Multi-directional Impact System). This is a way of designing helmets so as to reduce the damaging forces of a collision, therefore minimising the risk of injury as much as possible. This is done by ensuring multiple layers of protection, which absorb the different forces (rotational and linear) of a crash. More and more helmets use this technology.
Another thing to look out for is the newest range of bike helmets, which are referred to as "Smart Helmets". These are often equipped with Bluetooth features and left/right indicator LEDs on the rear, as well as the ability to communicate hands-free on your phone. Some even have an SOS feature, which will detect a crash and then alert others via a text message.
