Bicycle helmets & helmets for e-bikes and e-scooters - at SIP Scootershop

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".

What size should my bicycle helmet be?

The best way to measure the circumference of your head is with a tape measure. Place the tape measure about one centimetre above your eyebrows and then bring it back together at the back of your head. Compare the result with this table to find out exactly what size bicycle helmet you need for men and women. People who wear glasses measure the circumference in the same way, but choose the size so that the glasses do not pinch the helmet.

Rules of thumb for buying a bicycle helmet

  • The selected bicycle helmet should be worn for ten to 15 minutes to check its comfort.

  • The bicycle helmet should fit tightly and not slip down the neck.

  • The head should have no slack in the bicycle helmet, i.e. when you turn the helmet, the head should "go with it".

  • The straps of the fastener should not press against the neck but against the chin.

  • When the chin strap is closed, the bicycle helmet should not fall into the face.

  • If the glasses press in the bicycle helmet, another model should be chosen.

  • The straps should not interfere in any way and if a finger's width fits between the chin strap and the chin, everything is fine.
