New article published : read our new guide to choose your bike and cycling helmet .
Woe to think that the bicycle helmet is only for those who are agonizing or challenging bicycles, while in the city and the country it is useless. Statistics say that the greatest number of accidents occur when you are pedaling in traffic and this is where the bicycle helmet avoids that a trivial fall has serious consequences. Since the helmet is mandatory in cycling races, and that helmet less cyclists are no longer seen, only the urban cyclist (the one who is bicycling goes to work to understand) has not been able to understand the importance of this accessory.
It is essential that the bicycle helmet is homologated, that is, that it has passed the tests established by the quality control bodies: shock absorption, penetration resistance and strap hold. This is not about avoiding fines, but to protect themselves from traumatic potentially lethal headaches. Approvals must be indicated by a decal on the helmet , as verified at the time of purchase.
The bike helmet needs to be worn properly.The correct helmet position is low on the forehead (a finger about above the bushy eyebrow) avoiding it slipping backwards by uncovering the forehead.The straps should be stretched well and for the same length on both sides;On both sides, the cross between the front and back straps must be placed in front of and under the ear.
In the event of a collision, the bicycle helmet must be changed because the impact absorption capacity could be compromised. Remember, however, that the absorption capacity will begin to shrink naturally after 5 years, after which the helmet should be changed. Never remove the helmet to a traumatized cyclist before the arrival of doctors or paramedics, unless you have moved and obstructed your breathing.
For your choice of colors, follow your taste without forgetting that the safety of a cyclist in traffic depends on how much it becomes visible. Bicycle helmets treated with paints that reflect light and are also good at dusk are a good idea, as are also lights and catadrials applicable to the back, not just the helmet.
