The Best Bike Helmet for Commuters

Since 2015, we’ve interviewed helmet designers and safety experts, examined more than 70 helmets, and tested 21 in person to determine that the classic Specialized Echelon II is the best bike helmet for commuters. Its superior straps and adjustment system make it easy to dial in a perfect fit. And it’s one of only four helmets sold in the US that’s impact-tested and certified by Snell, one of the most trustworthy third-party labs in the country.
