Bike Helmetsbicycle helmet

A number of deaths have resulted from head injury resulting from bicycle accidents.  By law in Australia you are required to wear a bike helmet and cyclists are expect to obey the road rules. 

The best bicycle helmet to protect your head from impact, is usually lightweight, should come with adjustable straps, be correct fit size and allow good peripheral vision.  The helmet must comply with Australian Safety Standards (AS/NZS 2063:2008) and there is normally a label stuck to the shell that identifies compliance.

If you are concerned about bicycle helmets for you or your child, further information is also available from the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute. Any safety recalls are published on the Product Safety Australia website.

Popular brand names for bicycle helmets are Specialized, Bell, Rosebank and Giro.

You may ask why do I need bicycle clothing or apparel ?  One good reason is visibility.  Another is for seat comfort.
