Bern Allston bike helmet - Eurobike 2013

Action sports company releases first urban cycling helmet

Action sports helmet company Bern has dabbled in the bike world before, marketing some of its lids to cyclists, but the new Allston (US$89/£75) is the first helmet the company has created specifically for riders.

The Allston retains Bern's signature shell-and-bill look, with liquid-injected foam technology that the brand calls Zip Mold. It also makes for a relatively light helmet, at a claimed 13oz (369g).

Sixteen vents double the airflow compared to a standard Bern helmet, the company claims. The Allston also comes with a removable cold-weather liner.
