Helmet Buyers Guide |


Deciding which helmet you should buy can be tricky, so we've created this Helmet Buyers Guide to make sure you purchase the right helmet for your needs.



1. Select the type of helmet you require.

Multiple low force impacts.

*All Australian States and Territories require bicycle users to wear an approved bicycle helmet while riding on public roads and they enforce these laws locally.

Each State and Territory requires the use of bicycle helmets that comply with the Australian standard AS/NZS 2063.



2. Select the style.


We stock helmets from many of the main brands. Within those brands they each have their own styles of helmets with distinct shapes and features.

Additional info on specific helmets can be found in the videos at the bottom of the page.








3. Select the colour.


We stock a range of different colours and finishes (gloss, matte, rubber, glitter) but remember that it's purely cosmetic.

The most important thing is that it fits perfectly and protects your head!



PLEASE NOTE: Not all colours displayed are available at all times.
After you place your order, we'll contact you to confirm size, colour and availability. 



4. Select your size.

A helmet must fit right for it to work properly. To ensure that the helmet you're after fits perfectly, measure the circumference of your head by wrapping a measuring tape around your head just above the eyebrows. Each brand's sizing may vary, so once you have your measurement match it to the sizing charts to determine which size helmet you need.




5. Place your order!

A friendly Customer Service member will contact you if there is any issue regarding sizing, colour or stock levels.

For S1 Helmets, please add your helmet sizing into the Order Comments section before you place your order.
