  1. I think you had me me with the first helmet, Razor V-17. I cycle a lot, mostly to work and back and since it’s an absolute must to have a helmet and be safe I had problems finding a good one. As you mentioned, I don’t want it to be sweaty and look ridiculous on my head.

    Although the Razor V-17 is made for young cyclist, of 14 and younger I really hope my small head can fit in 🙂

    What I also really like about your article is that you only have 3 products to choose from – I get overwhelmed by best 10 lists and all that. When I want to buy something I don’t need 10 things to choose from, 3 is enough.

    Thank you for making it easy!

  2. Using a good helmet is a good thing to do in order to be safe while riding a bike and care the life of cyclists. I sometimes see people riding on the street with no helmet. I think it must be a law to use it. You made a great review, the one I prefer is the JBM Adult Cycling Helmet, it is well ventilated, impact resistant and has a very good looking. I like the purple and yellow 😉

    • Hi, Maria and thank you.

      Thank you for kinds words. 

      Yes, it always sad to see people don´t use a helmet. In some countries, it is a law about it. The point is that you should think first an about the safety. Using a helmet is in some way like you use fasten seat belt when you are in a car because of the security. Like about helmet it can be circumstances that it would be better not to use the fasten seat belt or helmet. But in most cases, it is safer and should be in priority.

  3. Thank you for sharing the best helmets for protection. 

    I always believe that in every activity we do, our safety should be our first priority, moreso when riding a bike. My dad got my youngest brother a bike for his 15th birthday next week. He was going to buy a helmet too but I volunteered to take care of it. But I don’t know which one to buy as I have no idea which kinds are the best.

    Among the three that you reviewed, Razor V-17 seems like the perfect fit for my brother. And he can use it for other activities other than biking, that’s just great. You mentioned an extra padding that he can use if the helmet is not comfortable or tight enough, but it does not come with an instruction on how to use it. I just hope it would be easy to figure out exactly how to do it.

    By the way, how do we clean a helmet? Can we soak the whole thing in water?

    • Hi, Alice and thank you.

      I agree the safety should be in priority and helmet play their big part.

      It is for sure not ideal that the instructions don´t come with Razor V-17. And right as the helmets are it is necessary to let it come with the helmets. The advice I can give about it is to contact them directly about the information.  The Factory contact information is at 1-800-451-KENT (5368) or http://www.kentbicycles.com.

      When you clean the bike helmets, you should use a mild soap and water. Sometimes come recommended from the brands how to do it and if so you should use their advice. But it usually is great to use a mild soap and water as I mentioned before.

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

  5. I once used JBM adult cycling helmet before. I actually didn’t have a problem with adjusting the strap since I’m always after for high-quality and reliable helmet. What I found was hard about this helmet was when I wore my hair in a ponytail since I had long hair then. Anyway, awesome review of those quality helmets.
