There’s no denying bicycles make fantastic gifts for children. If you decide to present the special child in your life with a bicycle, please take a look at this article from The Vindicator (sounds like a vigilante superhero, doesn’t it?) and make sure to give them a great helmet as well.
It might seem shocking to some, but there is a very vocal crowd who passionately believe that helmets don’t prevent head injuries. In fact, some even go so far as to say that they increase their likelihood because drivers give helmeted cyclists more “space.” Others argue that a helmet makes it more likely that you’ll whack your head on a branch or a side view mirror because it makes your head larger.
If these arguments sound a little ridiculous, that’s because they are. The website Bicycle Helmet Myths and Facts does a fantastic job of aggregating these myths and then showing how faulty their logic is. Check it out here.
Drawing inspiration from the corrugated cartilage structure of a woodpecker’s skull, this helmet is 15 percent lighter than your average helmet and can withstand triple the amount of impact. What’s more, it’s even waterproof and sweatproof!
Customize your helmet and get your sewing jones on at the same time. It’s the Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cup of cycling and sewing!
