BMX riders come in all different shapes and sizes and subsequently, the leading BMX brands have adapted to fit these wonderful brains, keeping riders safe and BMX sick! Most helmet brands will come with a slightly different cut or style, where most BMX helmets offer a more fuller cut helmet then the traditional cycling helmet. This more bucket-style helmet ensures more of the skull is covered and a tighter fit achieved. When choosing a helmet it is important that the helmet fits snug without causing any discomfort to the head. A helmet that doesn’t fit correctly won’t offer the same protection as one that does fit. Trying helmets on in your local Bike shop is important when considering buying a helmet since each rider's head will fit each style of helmet slightly different.
