The good news is that there are a few things you need to keep in mind when shopping for your headphones that will help you make the best decision for your needs. This article will walk you through everything you need to know about bicycle helmets, including their benefits and how to choose the right one for you. We'll also show you some of our most stylish helmets to give you ideas on what color or style would suit you best!

Why do you need a helmet? 

Bike helmets are vitally important as they help protect your head. The better your head is protected, the more likely you are to stay safe and avoid injury . The most common type of bicycle accident is a collision with an automobile or non-bicycle in an urban environment. In the event of such an accident, the bicycle helmet can help you in two ways: by absorbing the shock of the impact and preventing it from reaching your skull, and by protecting your skull from damage if you hit something. something hard like pavement.

The second type of accident the most common type of bicycle is when the cyclist falls off his bicycle, either in an accident or after coming to a stop. Wearing a helmet during either of these falls reduces the risk of head injury by approximately 50%. The goal of the Thousand brand, our flagship brand at Max And The City, was created for this, to save 1000 lives (hence the name Thousand which means thousand in English).

How to choose the right helmet?

When buying a bike helmet, you want to be sure that it will protect your head from any potential injuries. The Department of Transportation requires that helmets labeled "for cycling" meet certain safety standards. Many helmets available in the market meet these requirements and can provide enough protection for your head while riding a bike. In addition, some CE 1078 certified helmets offer enhanced safety with Mips technology. At Max And The City you will find two brands that offer this technology, Thousand Chapter helmets and Bern Watts 2.0 helmets . 

But there are two main things to keep in mind when choosing your helmet: weight and fit. The first is the weight. You want the helmet to be light enough that it won't weigh down your head or neck when cycling, which will make cycling more comfortable. Several brands on the Max And The City website offer bicycle helmets with a light weight, Thousand Heritage helmets are on average 420 grams for a medium size. The Kask brand offers a collection of Kask Urban R helmets with a similar weight of 400 grams for a medium size. The second is adjustment. A tight-fitting helmet covers less surface area than a loose-fitting helmet, which improves protection.  On the Max And The City site, most are available in three sizes, Small, Medium and Large. Mârkö Tandem helmets offer a wider choice of sizes starting with an Extra-Small size up to an Extra-Large size. On all the other brands offered on the site, the helmets have an adjustment system so that your helmet fits perfectly around your head for perfect safety and comfort. Before being able to properly adjust your helmet, it is essential to choose the right size of your helmet , which is why Max has created a size guide for each model. To enhance your visibility, it is possible to add a light to the back of your bicycle or scooter helmet. Several types of lights are in stock on the Max And The City website. 

Different types of helmets

There are different types of bicycle helmets you can choose from:
Open face helmets, helmets with a small visor and so-called “integral” helmets.
- Open face helmets, such as Thousand Heritage helmets or Bern Watts 2.0 helmets offer a simple format to protect you during your bike rides. The Thousand bike helmet is distinguished by its Pop-Lock system, a very stylish concept that allows you to attach your helmet using your lock by passing it through a dedicated hole. Bern offers Mips technology through a black-only model from the Watts 2.0 collection.
- Helmets with a small visor such as the Thousand Chapter helmets or the Kask Moebius helmets giving the possibility of putting a small visor above the eyes in order to protect oneself from the rays of the sun or the rain. These visors are interchangeable and several colors are available. As a reminder, the Thousand Chapter bike helmet is designed with Mips technology to reinforce your protection and a magnetic and rechargeable rear position light is also added for optimal safety on the road.
- The so-called "integral" helmets offer more complete protection by covering your entire head and adding a panoramic and removable visor to protect you from the rain or the sun's rays. Mârkö Tandem helmets or Urban R helmets are integral type. The little extra of the Mârkö Tandem helmet is the addition of earpieces during the winter season. On both models, it is possible to change the visor for a shade more suited to your needs or for a more stylish taste.
