Road Helmet Overview

Road helmets are considered paramount to ensuring rider safety.

Features of Road Bike Helmets

With the popularity of road cycling acros the UK, there is a massive range of road helmets available on BikeExchange! We think that these are the most notable features of a road helmet in comparison to other models:

Ventilation

We may not have the most scorching of summers, but even so riding during our warmer weather (or taking our bikes to other countries for riding holidays) can result in sticky situations if your helmet is not adequately ventilated. Extra vents may cost you a little aerodynamic performance, but it will prevent overheating and save you a little extra on weight. Typically, more expensive helmets will offer improved ventilation and internal channeling to direct the air over your head.

Weight

Strongly related to the above, road helmets are generally much lighter than other helmets. With thinner straps and a light shell, a performance road helmet will be extremely comfortable and almost make you believe you weren’t even wearing one! Typically, the higher the cost, the lower the weight.

Aerodynamics

Road helmets are specifically designed with aerodynamic performance in mind. Evidence suggests that at top end speeds, particularly when sprinting or during time-trials, an aerodynamically shaped helmet will increase performance. Beyond the helmet shape or design, this factor is often tied directly with ventilation.

Other

Finally, it is important to note that helmets are meant to break or crack upon significant impact – it means they have done their job! Be sure to consider checking if a brand offers a Crash Replacement Policy, it may save you money if a replacement is needed.
