Save big on safety! A bike helmet is essential and should be worn on every ride. Already wear one? Great! But how old is your favorite helmet? Bike safety experts recommend replacing your bike helmet every 5 years OR after a crash.

The Bell Slant looks and functions like a helmet that costs twice as much. It is super safe and comfortable, boasting 21 large vents and a snap-on visor. The Giro Indicator combines safety with sleek style, with 20 vents and a super-sturdy shell. Either model works great for adults or older kids. Stop in -- our staff is trained to custom fit your helmet to ensure optimal comfort and safety!

At this time of year, we had to include something in this Hot Deal to keep you warm under your helmet, and the Alpine Reversible Beanie by Headsweats is the perfect companion for winter rides. Warm, durable, moisture-wicking, and it features SPF 48 sun protection. This will be your go-to hat all winter long!

Patti The Buyer's Tip of the Day

Now that you have a good helmet, make sure you maintain its integrity:
  • Do not store a bike helmet in an attic, garage, car trunk or other area where heat can accumulate. Excessive heat may cause heat damage.
  • Avoid loaning your helmet to others - you won't know what it went through on someone else's head.
  • In the case of any crash or impact, a helmet should be replaced, even if everything looks okay. A helmet should be replaced after five years, even if it has remained crash-free. UV light, weathering and even pollution can weaken its components over time.
