Modern, lightweight and multifunctional
The days of simple bicycle helmets have been over for a while. Today, manufacturers offer sophisticated models with all kinds of refinements. From integrated lighting and radio to connection to an app, everything is available. So those who are on the move on two wheels without a petrol engine have a choice between many different variants. There is still no obligation to wear a helmet for bicycles without a motor, but of course you are safer on the road. Pedelecs are considered bicycles and may be ridden without head protection. The situation is different for e-bikes and S-pedelecs, where helmets are compulsory by law because the speeds are much higher. If you are unsure whether your bike can be ridden without a helmet, ask your dealer again.
You should choose a helmet according to what you usually do with your bike. For example, a mountain biker needs different head protection than a road cyclist. Downhill riders are certainly better protected with a full-face helmet than with a bicycle helmet for the city centre. So the requirements are just as different as the helmets on the market. Pay attention to material, fastening and the right size. Many bicycle helmets can be made tighter and wider by turning a dial. Take your time with the perfect adjustment, because nothing is worse than a helmet that doesn't fit comfortably "in use".
