For longer than I care to admit, I’ve been wearing a bike helmet sized too small. I had a hunch this was the case but never took the time to clarify my suspicions until this winter. Seeing the results after shoving it on my head over a winter hat not only made me laugh, but prompted me to go to Beaverdale Bicycles for a replacement. It was high time I stopped entertaining folks out on the trail with my cycling faux pas.
At the bike shop, Ed set me up with a Cratoni helmet. It’s way cool for several reasons:
It’s super lightweight.
It has some reflective strips and a light on the back for evening rides on the trail.
It was in my price range.
I went on a bicycle ride to see how it would feel out on the trail. It was so comfortable I almost forgot it was on my head. Thankfully I remembered to take it off before heading back home in the car! Now that would have prompted some stares.
Don’t be like me. Wear a helmet that provides you with the proper protection. For some help in getting a good fit, check the short video from Bike People. These tips from Bicycling can also point you in the right direction.
