Helmets are the most important piece of safety equipment, so choosing the right one is essential as they reduce the incidence of fatal head injuries by 50%*. In serious accidents almost 20% of all helmets actually come off either because they do not fit properly, are fastened loosely, or in some cases not fastened at all.
Different helmets make riding more comfortable and reduce rider fatigue. Some helmets cut down on wind noise, windblast, protect from adverse weather and deflect bugs and other objects that fly through the air.
Make sure your helmet fits properly and you replace it after any impact (or every 3-5 years).
