Best road cycling helmet deals right now

Riding with a helmet is essential for most and although you don't want to scrimp on your safety, you can grab yourself a bargain on the top line lids

plProtecting your head doesn’t have to be at the cost of style or function and with many modern day helmets meeting strict regulations and law, you are pretty much free to pick one that matches your style and application.

The primary job of a cycling helmet is to protect your head in the event of an incident. However, brands are constantly pushing forwards in their attempts to make them more lightweight, more aero and more comfortable.

You can pick up a basic, entry level helmet that will meet the safety requirements in the UK for around £50 quite comfortably. However, for the cutting edge in aerodynamics, the lightest lid on the block or the most breathable brainbox, prices will exceed £200. Which is where deals come in.

The Cycling Weekly tech team has tested all sorts of cycling helmets over the past few years, so we certainly know what represents a good investment. We scoured the internet for the best deals out there, on helmets that we’d recommend ourselves.

With each product is a ‘Buy Now’ link. If you click on this then we may receive a small amount of money from the retailer when you purchase the item. This doesn’t affect the amount you pay.
