A good bike helmet is one of the most important accessories for mountain biking – unless you're a particularly cautious rider, mountain biking will involve falling off at some point, so it makes sense to protect your head.
With that in mind, we've rounded up the best mountain bike helmets for general trail riding.
Three of the best mountain bike trail helmets
£70 / US$99.99 / AU$159
The Lithos is a fully in-moulded helmet, with the outer shell coming in a wide range of shades and designs. Its build, fit, comfort and ventilation are all up there, and at current prices it's a steal.
£90 / US$119.95 / AU$149.95
The Striker looks good, feels great and is one of our favourite trail lids. It's nicely constructed, with 22 vents to draw air in, and a simple retention system.
£64.99 / US$75 / AU$119.95
The younger – and cheaper – brother of the Bell Super, the Stoker is easily adjustable, well constructed and well ventilated. The peak isn’t adjustable but it sits high enough above your eyeline that it’s not in the way.
