Hello, Bikers! You know the importance of the helmet in our rides – after all, it is a safety accessory practically indispensable, because if it falls, there will be no serious problems, since the head is a sensitive place of the body. (And, since you, Bikers, must be bald-headed, safe, and well-equipped, we already have a free kick to think and have fun with the pedal.)
Well, the question is: do you know how to choose the ideal helmet ? Well, it’s not just about liking the look, but a few simple details that will make all the difference for the right choice.
The first question is to know the size, so the way is to measure the diameter of your head with a tape measure, leaving it in the center of the forehead and above the ears and eyebrows; Do not overtighten the tape, or leave it too loose.
So, after making sure the diameter of your head, let’s choose the appropriate size.(Size may vary depending on brand and type of helmet – whether it is oval or rounded.)
See your measurements and choose in the sizes or by the measurement itself:
- XS(X-small)=extra small/around 47cm to 50cm in diameter
- S(small)=small/around 51cm to 55cm
- M(medium)=medium/around 55cm to 59cm
- L(large)=large/around 59cm to 63cm
- XL(X-large)=extra large/63cm to 66cm
To make it easier to buy, you can choose models of helmets that can be tightened, so that you can leave more comfortable and pleasant. Another important detail is how the ventilation system works, yes, how the air will circulate by the helmet and refresh your head.For longer pedals, all comfort will make a difference.
Also make sure that the internals or the foam system are removable, so you can remove and wash, always keeping it clean and durable.
Ready! Now that we know a little more about helmets, how about taking a look at some models that Bike Pl us offers? We separate two(2) models here:
