Bicycle helmets ideally should be replaced every 3-5 years for optimal safety. Your bicycle helmet should also have a sticker inside of it which identifies that it has passed the CPSC tests for safety.
Your helmet should fit really well, have a good amount of ventilation, and have the CPSC sticker inside it. We carry a huge selection of helmets from Bontrager, Fox, Bell, Giro and Louis Garneau in all the popular styles and colors. As a courtesy, we fit each helmet we sell to make sure that it fits just right. If you have questions about the fit of your current helmet, please stop by and we’ll be happy to help you.
MIPS is a new helmet technology, which is widely available on many models. This is the first advancement in helmet safety in years, so the bike industry is pretty excited. It is believed that MIPS can redirect energy and provide more protection in certain impacts.
