How to choose a road bike helmet

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

  • What type of road riding?

    Are you a racer or a fitness rider? Commuting to work or climbing mountains? Whatever type of road riding 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 road racer may consider weight first. A triathlete may be more interested in aerodynamics. And for long-distance sportive riders, comfort is key. 

  • Safety

    Make sure the helmet meets the current safety standards in your country. Some common ones include Europe’s General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the U.S. 

  • 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.

  • Features

    From advanced fit systems to eyewear integration and mounts for a light or camera, road bike helmets offer many different options to maximize your riding experience.
