What are the best road bike helmets for professional cyclists?
The best road bike helmets for professional cyclists are those that offer the perfect combination of light weight, ventilation and safety. Mavic is a leader in this field, and utilizes different densities of expanded polystyrene (EPS) to build the framework for their helmets. The adjustment system is among the lightest on the market, and the Autofit non-adjustable chinstrap system automatically adjusts to different body shapes. Mavic helmets also feature a large number of vents, ensuring maximum air circulation to prevent overheating in hot weather and during long rides. Professionals appreciate Mavic helmets for their comfort, aerodynamics and impact resistance, making them an ideal choice for cyclists of all levels.
How do I choose the ideal size for a road bike helmet?
To choose the ideal size for a road bike helmet, measure the circumference of your head using a tape measure. Mavic helmets are available in a range of sizes, from S to L (and from 51 to 61, covering juniors to adults). It's important to choose a helmet that fits the shape of your head perfectly, without being too tight or too loose. When fitting your helmet, make sure that it’s positioned correctly on your forehead, with the chinstrap snug. Once you've found the ideal size and fit, you'll be able to reap the benefits of premium comfort and maximum protection on all your cycling adventures.
How long does a road cycling helmet last?
The lifespan of a road cycling helmet depends on a number of factors, including frequency of use, intensity of outings, storage and maintenance.. Mavic helmets are built to last, but we recommend replacing them every 5 years, even if they show no visible signs of wear. This is because the materials used in helmets can degrade over time and with exposure to high heat and/or UV, reducing their ability to absorb impact in the event of an accident. It is also important to replace a helmet after any notable impact, even if it appears undamaged, as internal damage can compromise protective performance.
