Urban Helmet Guide

 

Urban Helmet Guide

Urban Helmets

Urban helmets help keep you safe when cycling through town or commuting on busy city streets. All our urban helmets meet the minimum EU safety standard (CE EN 1078).

A general rule of thumb is the more you spend on a helmet, the lighter and more vented it will be. You’ll also find premium features such as integrated LED lights, better fastenings and even MIPS technology.


Features to Look For

Shell

Most cycling helmets are constructed in two parts. You have the outer plastic shell which is moulded to a polystyrene (EPS) inner core. The plastic shell prevents the inner core from small dings and scratches, as well as UV damage, while the EPS core absorbs energy during an impact.

Urban helmets come in a range of styles, but they all aim to be lightweight and vented to keep you cool at the slower speeds of recreational cycling.

Many take on the appearance of MTB helmets with extended coverage at the rear and the sides. You’ll also find small peaks and visors to help shield your eyes from the sun when in an upright cycling position. A lot of urban riders will also choose to use a skate style helmet for a super stylish look.

Core

Bike helmets are constructed with an Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) core. EPS is a great material for absorbing impacts without being heavy, making it ideal for use in helmets.

Almost all helmets will mould the shell to the EPS core together (called ‘in-mould’) to improve impact forces being transferred to the foam core. In-mould helmets can be designed with more intricate shaping as well.

Look for helmets with dual or multi-density EPS foam liners as these will offer more impact protection in a collision than those with single density.

MIPS

A Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is fitted between the helmet core and your head. MIPS helmets feature a low-friction layer inside a bike helmet that allows a multi-directional movement of 10-15mm on certain angled impacts. This is intended to reduce rotational force to the head to further protect you from injury.

MIPS is the original slip-plane technology, designed to reduces the rotational forces that result from certain impacts, but there are other systems as well. All these systems are integrated into the fit system, of the helmet, usually between the padding and the EPS foam protective layer. MIPS safety systems are found on urban helmets at many different price points.

Crash Sensors

Sensors like the Specialized ANGi system automatically call for help when you have a crash. Crash sensors attach to your helmet, and some are supplied with them ready fitted. When the sensor detects forces consistent with a crash, it sends an alert to your smartphone which starts a countdown. If you’re hurt and unable to stop the countdown the app automatically sends a message with your location to your designated emergency contacts. You can even allow your contacts to follow your ride in real-time. A great feature for everyone’s peace of mind.

Fit & Straps

All urban helmets will feature adjustable fitting system that ensures your helmet stays securely attached to your head.

Often, helmets will have a dial adjuster at the rear of the helmet that pulls the inside liner webbing together to cradle your head. The best adjusters are easy to use with a single hand, so you don’t have to stop riding to modify fit.

Chin straps are the to keep your helmet in place, even if you have a fall. These are fully adjustable on urban helmets. Look for magnetic buckle fastening on the chin strap to make it even easier to secure your helmet.

Liner Padding

Liner padding is very important for comfort while wearing your helmet. The liner is the only part of the helmet which directly contacts your head, so you want it to be comfortable.

The best liners are quick drying, hydrophilic and anti-microbial to help reduces smells. If you’re commuting or riding every day, then removable pads are ideal, so you can give them a deep clean before your next ride.

Ventilation

Ventilation will be a big factor in how comfortable you are when cycling. The more expensive your helmet is, the more vents it will have (except for skate helmets that are quite minimalist anyway).

For the slower speeds of recreational cycling and commuting, having plenty of vents will help cooling air pass over your head. Skate helmets will use less vent channels for a stronger, more solid design – to withstand the knocks of the skate park.

Visor

A visor is a great addition for an urban helmet to keep your eyes shielded from sun (especially useful at dawn and dusk). A visor will also help keep the rain out of your eyes. If you don’t want a visor on all the time, you could choose a helmet with a clip-on visor.

Visibility

When cycling through town, anything you can do to enhance your visibility is a bonus. Some urban lids come with features to help with visibility such as bright colour schemes, reflective areas and integrated LED bike lights.

Weight

A heavy helmet is uncomfortable to wear. Extra vents will reduce weight but can limit the sturdiness of the lid. Those with an in-mould design will also be lighter than those that are not.

Lighter weight helmets tend to offer more comfort


Sizing

It is important to get a helmet that fits correctly. Simply measure the circumference of your head and match it to the helmet size. Do this by placing a tape measure on the centre of your forehead and wrap it around your head above the ears. See our clothing size guide for more details.

When should I replace my bike helmet?

Should I change it after time?

Many helmet manufacturers recommend changing your bike helmet every three years even with no impacts. This is because there is a constant knocking and pressing of the EPS core as it is used, stored, dropped, or placed on hard surfaces. Over time these tiny impacts will cause the EPS to lose volume so it will be less able to absorb energy if you have a big crash.

However, if you look after your helmet, for example by storing it in a padded bag instead of throwing it in the back of the car to bounce around with your shopping, then it will continue to offer good protection for longer. A bike helmets EPS core doesn’t automatically degrade over time, but you do need to look after it.

To avoid damage to your helmet it is best to store it in a cool dry place. Avoid solvents and extreme changes in temperature and don’t drop it or throw it around. Even very small amounts of damage can seriously affect the performance of a helmet. If you can see any damage at all on your helmet then you should replace it.

Should I change it after a crash?

If you hit your head in a crash, then the helmet should be replaced. The EPS core is designed for one-time use and if it is crushed it won’t give you the proper protection you need next time around. Even if the helmet looks fine, it may still be damaged. Small cracks in the EPS core may be hidden by the outer shell. These could cause the helmet to come apart if you hit it again in the same spot.

Fortunately, most helmet manufacturers offer a crash replacement policy so you can get a new helmet at a discount if you damage one in a crash. These policies vary from brand to brand, but most will give you a half-price helmet to replace one bought within the last couple of years. Check the specific brand's website for details on their policy.
