I thought my £100 helmet was good for racing as I purchased it some 12 months ago. On looking at the TV it appears that the racing helmets don't mushroom out at the sides and are actually very flat to the side of the head. There is never a photo showing if they stick out or not so it looks like you need to actually go and see it. Have I missed a trick or is this the problem with buying off the internet?
In my opinion it is better to try it on first and not to buy it in the internet but there should be no problem in return or change the model, right?
the shape of the most helmets is always with vents, and they are usually made with EPS foam covered by a thin plastic shell. Besides there are helmets with a rounded shape or an elongated road style. Some of them have accessories such as mirrors, winter ear flaps and rear blinkers that are useful for commuting.The one you buy should be fitting perfectly for having the best results of security.
pro helmets are significantly more advanced than the general helmets, my race team helmet has kevlar built into it reducing the need for EPS foam and as such is smaller and more pro looking. regardless unless you are spending £150+ you may have to look like a mushroom to protect your head or buy a kask helmet!
