Road Bike Helmets

Suitable for every rider, road helmets have come a long way from the leather buckets of the 70s. Bike helmets are paramount to rider safety and you are required to wear one in Australia. In fact, riding without a helmet is illegal in Australia. Further, Australian helmet standards are tough and global manufacturers must past rigorous tests to sell in Australia with the appropriate testing labels. Always check your helmet for the Standard AS/NZS label before purchase. Please note that Port Melbourne Cycles only sells road bike helmets that have met Australian Standard AS/NZS Certification.

 

Road Bike Helmet Safety 

With road cycling increasing in popularity in Australia there are a large range of road bike helmets now available. Some helmets also come in multiple sizes as manufacturers acknowledge that “one-size-fits-all” just isn’t the case anymore. Further, the protective features of road bike helmets are changing as our understanding of the dynamics of a crash deepens. As a result, road bike helmets are continually updating and improving their safety features.

Ideal for amateurs to the professional racer, road bike helmets are lighter than other helmets. In fact, many performance road bike helmets are so light it can even feel as if you’re not wearing a helmet at all. Optimised for performance, road bike helmets are designed with weight, aerodynamics, and ventilation in mind.

 

Aerodynamics 

Lightweight, aerodynamic design improves performance, allowing all riders – from the amateur and hobby rider to the professional and race rider – to reduce wind resistance and improve performance. Aerodynamics are often tied into ventilation.

Ventialtion 

Modern road bike helmets have a heavy focus on ventilation. Providing ventilation to the head, as well as padding that helps wick away moisture, has become important for all riders. It is especially important in Australia, where summer heat can otherwise make summer riding impossible.

 

Fitting a Road Bike Helmet 

Finally, it is important to ensure that your helmet fits correctly. Your helmet should be a comfortable, secure fit that is snug without being uncomfortable. Many helmets feature a retention system, as a result, allowing you to fine tune the fit so you essentially have a custom fit road bike helmet.
