Bicycle helmets ideally should be replaced every 3 to 5 years for optimal safety. Your helmet should be well ventilated and have a sticker inside of it which identifies that it has passed the CPSC safety standards. We carry a huge selection of helmets from Bontrager, Fox, Bell, and Giro, in all the popular styles and colors. As a courtesy, we adjust each helmet we sell to make sure that it fits properly. The right fit is crucial to protecting the most important part of your body. 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 safety standard in helmet technology, which is widely available on most 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 that will help prevent neck injuries and concussions. Bicycle helmets are designed for single impact accidents only. If you do have an accident, please have your helmet examined by a shop to determine if it needs to be replaced.
