How can I find the right type of bicycle helmet?


In 2008, bicyclist deaths represented 2 percent of all traffic fatalities, the majority from head injuries. The Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute offers a buyer’s guide and guidance on proper fit and trends, as well as reviews of helmets and recall information.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also provides current bicycle and motorcycle helmet laws by state.
