Thankfully, most cyclists wear a helmet these days. Prices range from $30 to wallet-straining amounts. Every helmet sold in the U.S. needs to meet the same standards, so no matter the price, the safety factor is a given. What typically differentiates helmets, especially at the higher end of the market, is precise fit, weight, style, feel and ventilation.
