Helmets are the first equipment to ensure human safety, so the helmets of regular manufacturers will have corresponding standard certification marks, such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or Snell Foundation, and there is usually some international, national or regional authoritative certification agencies Certification mark.

[Inner lining] is the part of the helmet that is in contact with the head. It can improve the wearing comfort at ordinary times and produce a cushioning effect when the head is hit. A well-made helmet has a large inner lining coverage, better texture, and a stronger bond with the inside of the helmet;
[Wearing Comfort] It is mainly due to the personal feeling of weight, lining, straps, and head circumference. Wearing a comfortable helmet can greatly reduce the pressure on the rider’s head and neck and maximize the impact on the rider. Improve the protection effect;

[Wind resistance effect] The helmet puts the human hair in the helmet, which reduces the wind resistance of the head. For those who are keen to increase speed, the influence of the helmet shape on the wind resistance is also worthy of attention.
[Types of bicycle helmets]: Half helmet bicycle helmets are divided into road-specific (no brim), road bike and mountain bike dual-use (with detachable brim), etc. Some friends also use helmets similar to those used for baseball or roller skating.
