When choosing a bicycle helmet you mainly want to look at three things. Fit, extra features you may be interested in and keeping cool. Okay, and a forth thing, looking cool. You also need to have a budget, there’s no need to spend tons on a helmet for a casual commute. Helmet price can go up to over £200 and start as low as £25. When it comes to protection, there are few differences between the price extremes. However, spending more money should keep your head cooler and provide more comfort.
There are some exceptions to this, for example, Smith helmets have a new material called ‘Koroyd’ which is better than standard helmet material but these helmets are a little more expensive – they are very comfortable though.
