Bicycle helmets have to be mandatory when you ride a bike, no matter if you are 4 or 40! Too many times our sales people hear excuses for riders not wearing helmets. But the truth is, for every excuse for not wearing a helmet, they hear a story of how a helmet saved the rider from serious injury. Riding is full of unpredictable hazards like a squirrel darting in front of you or a pot hole that comes out of nowhere. Unfortunately, sometimes those hazards cause riders to fall and having a bicycle helmet on can save you from a trip to the hospital.
All Bontrager Helmets pass CPSC standards and have the new Mips Technology option. Be sure to ask your salesperson about Mips.
