Essential urban gear

Cracked pavement, curbs, constantly changing weather. Of all the ways to move through the city, none are more thrilling than riding your bike. But the things that make urban riding fun can also be hazards.

Checklist for choosing an urban bike helmet

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

  • Features

    From integrated lights to adjustable brims and removable padding that can be swapped out for warm or cold weather, these helmets offer various features designed specifically for urban riding. 

  • Style

    Commuters and urban riders typically favor more subtle helmet styles compared to the more tech-forward look and feel of road helmets. Consider styles that you’ll want to wear with street clothes rather than a riding kit. 

  • 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.

  • 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.
