Helps prevent serious head injury, it’s important to check it fits you properly.

Improves your visibility, since your eyes are protected from the dust and wind.

Reduce the possibility of a brain injury by 85%. During a fall or collision the helmet absorbs most of the impact energy.

How does a helmet work?

Helmets designed to handle major crash energy and generally contain a layer of crushable foam. When you crash and hit a hard surface, the foam part of a helmet crushes, controlling the crash energy and extending your head’s stopping time by about six thousandths of a second (6 ms) to reduce the peak impact to the brain. Rotational forces and internal strains are likely to be reduced by the crushing.
