The Best Bike Helmet for Commuters
Updated Dec 10, 2022
We get it. You don’t race in the Tour de France. You don’t ride off cliffs, à la Red Bull Rampage. You can’t even do a wheelie. All the same, if you ride a bike—even just to work and back—you should wear a helmet. Slick leaves, loose gravel, wet trolley tracks, they can all bring you down, so protect your noggin. Since 2015, we’ve examined more than 70 helmets and tested more than 20 in person to determine that the classic Specialized Echelon II is the best bike helmet for commuters.
