Cycling Helmets & Headwear Cycle helmets are an essential safety
element when riding. Although not compulsory by law at present, it is
rare to see riders on the roads without a helmet, especially amongst
traffic. Helmets are produced in a huge variety of shapes and sizes for
all kinds of riding, sizes of head and age of rider. Modern style bike
helmets are ultra strong but extremely lightweight. Commonly used
materials are a combination of carbon fibre and foam, moulded to prevent
weak joints in the helmet that could collapse on impact. Lightweight
Composite Materials All the helmets we stock at AW Cycles pass British
law for safety standards at all price points, but it is vital to note
that if involved in a crash or the helmet receives a heavy impact then
it must be replaced. Helmets are designed to break in order to disperse
an impact, so the safety will be compromised. With composite materials
more readily available, as the price increases helmets become lighter
and more vented with a great deal of choice in design. At AW Cycles we
sell helmets for use on the road, off road, BMX (lids) childrens
helmets, Aero Time trial helmets and full face helmets form manufactures
such as Giro, Bell, Met, Rudy Project and Limar. For further
information about technology, safety, uses and fitting have a look
through our clothing buyers guides.
