Why is the bicycle helmet so important and what can a bicycle helmet endure?
Bicycle helmets are primarily designed for falls at high speeds. What does a bicycle helmet do in this case? As soon as you hit the ground with a force, the hard outer shell and the hard foam padding of the helmet absorb a large part of the force - up to two thirds of the energy - and distribute it over the entire surface of the helmet.
So what's the use of a bicycle helmet? What is so important about it?
Due to the effective buffer effect, serious head injuries occur much less often in helmet wearers, while people without helmets often injure themselves severely or even fatally. Fractures of the skull, concussions, traumatic brain injuries and hemorrhages are possible consequences of accidents.
And they are anything but cool! Avoiding the helmet is an absolute no-go. If you think that a helmet doesn't fit your style, you simply haven't found the design that was tailored for you. Go on a journey of discovery with us and let yourself be convinced that there is a suitable lid for every cyclist!
What is safer a skater helmet or a bicycle helmet?
What is better a skater helmet or a bicycle helmet?
Perhaps you have often asked yourself what is different between the two helmets and what their respective advantages and disadvantages are. When it comes to skating, it can be said very clearly: bicycle helmets are not suitable for this sport because they do not protect the back of the head - but this is particularly at risk when skating because you land on them particularly quickly in the event of falls, collisions, etc.
In contrast to a bicycle helmet, the skater helmet is a so-called half-shell helmet: it covers your forehead, temples and the back of your head up to the first cervical vertebra. So you are protected against falls, collisions and other forces from all directions, your head and neck are protected all around and if there should be an accident, it will go far more lightly for you than with a bicycle helmet - or even without a helmet!
The reverse also applies to cycling: skater helmets are often safer than bicycle helmets.
Another difference is the way of ventilation: Skater helmets often have braces that are very far apart so that ventilation is not only guaranteed by the draft at high speeds, but also at slower speeds.
So your skater helmet is also suitable for bicycles and when you are asked whether you should choose a skater helmet or a bicycle helmet, you cannot go wrong with the former. In addition, a perfectly fitting skater helmet on the bike gives you that certain something.
What makes a good skater helmet?
The skater helmet must adapt exactly to your head shape; that is, he must neither push nor wiggle. At Skullcap, the name says it all: the helmet sits bombproof. Anything else would not only be dangerous, it would also be unattractive and absolutely out of fashion. If you should buy a helmet from us that does not yet fully adapt to your head shape, you can correct it with pads that you can get from us for free. Your skater helmet should hug your head so that you can hardly feel it! At the same time, it has to provide optimum protection and offer maximum comfort.
A good helmet is also breathable, so you don't sweat under it and don't suffer from heat stroke in summer. After all, you don't want to feel melted while exercising, nor do you want to look completely fixed when you take off your helmet. Our helmets have eight extra large air intakes that guarantee ample, wonderfully fresh ventilation - regardless of the wind conditions and your speed!
In addition to the design, quality is of course a top priority for us: our BMX helmets are extremely safe thanks to their hard shell made of polycarbon, which is firmly attached to the inner shell made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) - an ideal "crumple material". In this so-called "inmold process" ("hard shell" helmets), the top shell of the helmet is firmly welded to the foam. A distinction is made between selectively bonded helmets ("softshell helmets") which have a significantly lower stability.
You can use a simple test to find out what kind of helmet it is: You shouldn't feel any distance from the foam when you press on the shell. Both must form a firm and stable unit. If this is not the case, it is a softshell helmet with the disadvantages mentioned.
With the chin strap it should be noted that it must close firmly and securely and not open "by itself" (by accidental contact). You should be able to open it with one hand so that you can remove the helmet quickly and easily in an emergency. When adjusting the chin strap, make sure that a finger fits comfortably between the strap and your chin after closing.
With the straps of your helmet, you should make sure that they do not press on your ears. Because comfort is very important, especially on longer bike tours or when training for several hours, so that you feel good all around and that also radiates unmistakably.
With our infinitely and easily adjustable EASfit adjustment system you are always on the safe side.
The inner pads for padding on our helmets are removable, so you can wash them at any time. Because, of course, hygiene is also an important property of all sporting goods.
