Statistics show that helmets reduce the incidence of fatal head injuries by 50%, so we urge you to wear a correctly fitted helmet. But how do you choose one? Think of your intended riding while considering the materials used to construct the helmet.
Thermoplastic: The construction of these helmets is a simple process, which is why they're less expensive. A thicker impact liner, which requires a larger shell, is used. This makes the helmet slightly larger and heavier.
Fiberglass or Hybrid Ultra Light? Constructing a fiberglass helmet involves a two-step process that layers fiberglass and injected resins to create the shell. This results in a lighter helmet than one made of Thermoplastic, but heavier than a Hybrid Ultra-Light helmet.
