Checklist for picking a Mountainbike helmet

There are many factors when choosing your mountainbike perfect helmet. Here are a few to consider:

  • What type of mountainbiking?

    Are you riding XC, trail, enduro or DH? Whatever MTB style you love most, there’s a Mips®-equipped helmet made just for you. 

  • Competition or fun? 

    How serious are you about your riding? A dedicated XC racer may consider weight first. An enduro or trail rider is probably more interested in all-day comfort and durability.

  • Safety

    Make sure the helmet meets Europe’s General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) standards.

  • Climate

    Do you ride primarily in warm weather? Cold? Rain? Different helmets can make your experience more enjoyable depending on the elements you ride in most often. 

  • Rotational management

    Make sure the helmet is designed with a low-friction layer that’s intended to help reduce rotational force to the head during certain angled impacts. 

  • Comfort and fit

    Everyone has their own unique head shape and fit factors. It’s important to consider everything from sizing to retention systems and straps.
