There are several aspects that differentiate helmets from each other: shape, the speciality for which they are designed, colour, weight, construction technologies, comfort. A good helmet cannot be felt but is present: this means that it shouldn't bother the cyclist in any way but at the same time be a protection in case of need.

When is a bicycle helmet compulsory?

In Italy, helmets are not compulsory in cycling according to the Highway Code, but we would recommend wearing them at all times, even in apparently non-dangerous situations: on the road the cyclist 'cohabits' with other elements that can cause falls, such as cars, lorries, pedestrians, other cyclists, and even rough ground, holes, roots. 

It is a different matter for races, during which helmets are compulsory at all times, whatever the speciality of the race (road, track, MTB, enduro, etc.).

What are the main types of cycling helmets?

Helmets differ mainly by the speciality for which they are intended, so road helmets are different in shape, weight and technology than, for example, MTB helmets. The first ones aim in particular to be light and aerodynamic, while mountain bike helmets are stronger, heavier and may have a chin guard to protect the face as well (so-called full-face helmets).

How to choose a MTB helmet?

It is important to choose the right size helmet, so neither too tight because it would cause too much pressure on the skull, nor too loose because it would move too much and lose its protective capabilities.

Depending on the Mountain Bike discipline being practised (e.g. XC, Enduro, Downhill) the helmet differs. For example, full-face helmets are used for gravity disciplines, such as enduro and downhill; they have a chin guard that protects the face from possible impacts and, unlike those used for motocross, they are lighter, more ventilated with air intakes, and have more internal padding, which is usually removable and washable.

How to choose a racing bike helmet?

For the road cyclist, the helmet is first and foremost an indispensable element to ride safely! That is why it is important to ensure that the model has the required European safety certifications. 

It is also important to check:

- The size of the helmet, possibly by measuring the circumference of the skull and following the size chart available for each model.
- The fit, the helmet must not be too far forward or too far back and must cover the forehead and temples correctly.
- The ventilation, to avoid excessive sweating.
- The weight


Once the helmet is put on, the lock can be adjusted thanks to the micrometric adjustment wheel, with which all the best road helmets are equipped.
