Checklist for choosing a helmet

There are many factors to consider when choosing the perfect helmet.
Here are some important ones to think about. 

  • What type of activity?

    Cycling, snow sports, or moto? Equestrian, climbing, or hockey? Whatever sports and activities you love most, there’s a helmet equipped with a Mips® safety system made for the way you move.  

  • Competition or fun? 

    Bike racers often think first about ventilation and weight. Skiers, snowboarders and moto riders might seek maximum protection. Some helmets are all about performance gains, others focus on comfort and fit.

  • Safety

    This is what matters most. You can look for safety features and functions for your activity, but the first step is to make sure it’s certified to standards in your country, such as General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) in Europe and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the U.S. 

  • Climate

    Consider the weather you’re in most often. If it’s heat and humidity, ventilation is key. For snow sports like skiing and snowboarding, consider an insulated liner. Vents that open or close add versatility, and an integrated visor can shield your eyes from rain or bright sunlight. 

  • Rotational management

    This is the reason Mips exists. We have done the research. We have the data. Studies show that when you crash and hit your head, it’s most often an angled impact. So, this part is easy: Choose a helmet equipped with a Mips® safety system, which is intended to help reduce rotational forces to the head when falling at an angled impact.

  • 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. A poor fit isn’t just uncomfortable, it can also compromise safety.
