Which of These 4 Bike Helmets is Better for You?

Ⅰ. The importance of bicycle helmets

Bicycle helmet is the most important safety protection equipment when riding, there is no doubt about it! If you wear a helmet correctly, it may save your life at a critical moment, provided that you have to choose the right helmet to play its role!


Let's first classify helmets briefly, which can be divided into four categories according to the sports scene and exercise intensity, namely commuter helmets, mountain half helmets, mountain full helmets and road helmets.


Ⅱ. Different types of bicycle helmets


1. Mountain half helmet

Mountain half helmets are a unified or general concept. Because there are many mountain riding scenes, the riding intensity corresponding to different scenes is different, so they use different helmets.


In terms of appearance, it is somewhat similar to the road helmet. In terms of performance, it pursues lightness, breathability and aerodynamic performance. Other types of mountain bike helmets are completely different. From the appearance, they have a long brim, and the back of the head is smoother. From the functional design, they pay more attention to strength and protection performance. The most obvious is the protection of the back of the head. The weight will increase accordingly.


2. Mountain full helmet

The mountain full helmet is designed for high-strength and complex riding scenes. From the appearance, it is very similar to the motorcycle helmet. It emphasizes the protection of the entire head. It provides protection for the side face, neck, and jaw. It has support and protection functions. This type of helmet is mainly suitable for high-intensity mountain sports scenes with complex terrain, such as speed descent and climbing.


3. Road helmet


The best road helmet should be the most popular type of helmet, because it is suitable for a wide range of people, such as mountain horse party, road cycling, road sports, commuting, travel, etc., almost all of them are road bike helmets.


The simplest difference between road helmets and mountain helmets is that they have no brim, which is more in line with the needs of road riding and can provide better vision. In terms of performance, it is more in line with aerodynamics, light weight, and good ventilation, which is more in line with people's wearing habits!


The road helmet can be further subdivided or listed separately: it is a triathlon helmet, a triathlon helmet is a special competitive helmet, from the appearance it has a small tail, few wind holes, completely Follow the design of aerodynamics.


4. Commuter helmet

In fact, there is no special classification of commuter helmets in bicycle helmets. I will tell them separately because this type of user group is very large. For example, for daily commuters, long-distance trips and other cyclists, their exercise intensity is not the riding conditions are not complicated. They usually call themselves "leisure riding". Such people can choose the commuter helmet mentioned here.


Commuter helmets are mainly ordinary road helmets, and some mountain dual-use helmets. As mentioned above, the pursuit of helmet performance is different in different riding scenes, so there is no helmet that is suitable for mountain sports and road sports. This type of helmet that claims to be mountain dual-use is classified as a commuter helmet.
