How do you choose what is the right helmet for you?

Safety, shape, ventilation, weight, padding, fit, colour, price and brand may all pay a factor in how you chose your helmet.

We would like you to help us to determine how you choose what is the right helmet for you.

We are only asking for five minutes of your time, and you will get the chance to win a Karcher bike wash.

Update: This survey is now closed. Richard Espley of Stafford is the winner of the prize draw.

If all helmets are designed to meet the same safety standards, why do they vary in price so much?
