You don't need us to tell you whether or not to wear a helmet – let's park that one for now – but if you are a helmet wearer, you'll have noticed that over the last few years road cycling lids have got much more comfortable, lighter, better-looking and safer.
The latest premium helmets are often wind tunnel tested: as one of your body's leading edges there are crucial watts at stake, and an aero-optimised design can make a difference, especially in a sprint finish.
All helmets sold for the purpose of bike riding have to meet international safety standards, and with the introduction of MIPS technology we're seeing even better protection for hardly any extra weight.
We've searched the online retailers for the best deals out there. If you're in the UK and are in the market for a pro-level aero helmet, make sure you take a look at the Met Manta and the HJC Furion, which both have 50 per cent off their SRP at Wiggle.
In the USA there are some great deals on Oakley helmets, in particular the Oakley AR05 at REI, and don't miss the innovative Lazer Bullet on sale at Backcountry.
We've tested a lot of cycling helmets (opens in new tab) between us at CW, and our testers know what represents a good deal. We wouldn't hesitate to personally recommend any of the helmets below.
With each product is a ‘View Deal’ 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.
