We don't need to explain why cycling helmets are a vital piece of kit. Those brains deserve to be looked after. That's why we have such a large range of helmets in our shop. Different sizes, styles and functions.
The best way to know if a helmet is right for you is to put it on your head...so come in, try on, and ask questions.
"Deciding to ride your bike without a helmet is a beacon of hope for those in need of new organs"
There is a multitude of design and technology that goes into helmet production, with safety obviously being paramount. More recently a lot of our stock has MIPS technology. A revolutionary technology that lessens trauma to the brain on 'angled impacts'.
What Is MIPS Helmet Technology?
"Some bicycle crashes occur at an angle and these kinds of impacts create rotational violence to the brain, which in turn can cause the most severe brain damage. The MIPS, or Multi-Directional Impact Protection System imitates the natural protective properties of the human brain and gives proven reduction of rotational forces".

Mountain Bike Helmets

We call this a 'trail lid' and stock a variety of brands to offer maximum choice to find the right helmet for you, with IXS, Troy Lee Designs, Met, Mavic being our top selling brands.
IXS Trail RS
The ideal companion on all-mountain and trail tours. The TrailRS provides all round protection with Inmould technology in which the helmet is directly connected with the absorbing EPS material.

The two-components adjustment unit with precision interlocking, "ErgoFit UltraTM" creates a comfortable and extremely exact fit vertically and horizontally, guaranteeing a good fit and a high degree of wearing comfort. The visor is fully adjustable and has a quick release system, "QuickRelease" that allows the visor to fold out of the way in the case of a fall.
