    As an 11-time Ironman Triathlon Finisher, I can certainly relate to your post on the best Mountain  Bike Helmets. Even though I spent years on a road bike, the importance of a certified helmet is just as relevant. I can attest to their importance first-hand.

    Years ago after training for about 10 months for an Ironman Triathlon in Canada, I had a horrific crash. I went over the handlebars at speed and hit the road full force with my head and shoulder. It broke through all three levels of the Bell helmet I was wearing and I snapped my collar bone like a twig. I was fortunate enough that someone saw it happen and drove me 15 miles to a hospital. The doctor said the helmet saved my life. Without it, I most likely would have died because I was so far from the hospital.

    I had just had the final tune-up done on the bike before the big race. I was going at a good speed standing up on the pedals when the chain just flew off and I lost control. It turns out that during the tune-up the chain was not tightened properly.

    Well, at least I lived, even though I missed my race.

    I can see from your post how much bike helmets have improved over the years. I hope anyone who intends to do any serious biking visits your website first.

      Hello, Ray, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      I agree the bike helmets have taken significant steps in development through the years. And their importance, well I think we do not need to mention that. It is a must to have, as simple as that.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    I believe that safety, is the paramount concern, for using a helmet,so I would choose a helmet, that is certified,by a reputable authority, and carries their label,as such the Fox Head Flux race helmet,which gets my vote.

    Next comfort is a big concern,as you will be wearing it for long periods under difficult conditions,as long as it’s retention system and straps keep it from falling or sliding off,that keep out the sun and rain,and it’s padding is comfortable,and washable,which applies to all of the helmets.

    Lastly it should be available with other accessories,such as goggle brackets,and an audio system,as for the Demon Podium Full Face helmet.

    For the bike lovers, many ignore the safety gear that is associated with riding. How many of us get into bikes without the all so important helmet? I am one very big culprit.

    But one of the main reason I’ve never taken helmets as serious as I should is probably the make of most of them. Some are super heavy with not so interesting designs.

    You’ve highlighted very sleek helmets and and functional helmets. Its time to get my hand on one!

      Hello, Carol5162, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Great to hear about your benefits of the article.

      Safety is a crucial thing, and this is both a comfortable and cheap way to add more security. Of course, if the helmet is heavy, it is uncomfortable but even so necessary because so many injuries have happens because of lack of helmets.

      But these helmets are comfortable and light weighted so it is no problem with it.

    Hi,

    I sometimes go for casual mountain biking on trails. Singapore has nature reserve parks that have some bike trails. They are not those extreme kinds so I don’t think I need a full covered helmet. 

    Which one will you recommend from the list of helmets you have brought up here?

      Hello, ZhengYu, and thank you.

      This helmet was chosen for a huge selection. So I can, for sure, recommend all of it. In my opinion, this is the best helmets of the year but at the same time was all budget have to find but made it easier for people to find a good helmet for their activity.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
