If helmets were to be made compulsory………………….?
why does every single thread like this always descend into a pro choice/compulsion debate….
If you want to wear a helmet fine, but they are only designed to do so much. They will not stop you dying, they are not some magic bullet. The roads would be safer with more cyclists, and enforcing helmet use will, if every study so far done is to be believed reduce the number of cyclists.
What will make the roads safer is enforcement of existing laws not the introduction of new laws.Posted 6 years ago
ton, not commenting on your thread, commenting on how someone had to turn this into a helmet law thread, if you look someone above mentioned it.
But to answer your question i have some Met Inferno, which seems to be nicely ventilated. But as i don’t have thousands of pounds to buy the best Giro, Bell, Met, Catlike, etc etc.
If you want light and airy, look at the higher end road helmets. I don’t think you can go that wrong, just go to a shop try a few on and see what fits. That is the most important point, far more so than brand, colour, ventilation etc.Posted 6 years agogrumMember
Yes I agree with WARTON: The wearing of helmets should be a legal requirement just as wearing safety belts when driving a car .
It a protection that is invaluable .
Anyone who has had a close shave falling with your bike would agree ..Im sure.
I agree, people in cars should be forced to wear helmets. 😉Posted 6 years agobigjimSubscriber
Anyone recommend a helmet for narrow but long heads, if that makes sense? Think Alien heid, without the second one in my mouth though. They always look so wide on my narrow face. Need to replace my Xen after using it as a brake last year still, but its longer than 2 years and I cant find the receipt for the madison replacement.Posted 6 years agoscotsmanMember
In my humble opinion I think all cycling helmets look shite and unless you are wearing the yellow jersey in the TDF generally everyone looks like a tit in one 😀Posted 6 years ago
But I do wear one so POC receptor flow for me at the moment when mincing the trails and not so gnarr DH and full on moto x Shoei VFX-W for the very gnarr DH, only minimal grams heavier than MTB DH full face helmet and I do race enduro (with an engine) also.aracerSubscriber
I’m confused by the question. Why would being legally required to wear one make a difference to my choice of what to wear? It’s not as if I have a choice of two helmets, one of which I use for leisure riding and one for races. Can’t believe ton was trolling, as he never does that, so what was his point?Posted 6 years ago
