Looking for a new bike helmet? We’ve got you covered. Here are some of the best bike helmets of 2020.

This premium helmet offers supreme ventilation, comfortable fit and adequate protection. It’s not for casual riders, and its $275 price tag reflects that.

The Bern FL1 Trail isn’t a premium helmet like the Octal X Spin, but it’s a great budget one. It’s designed to keep you safe, and that’s about it. It’s comfortable and relatively stylish, but you get what you pay for with helmets, and the Bern FL1 is no exception. The FL1 costs just under $100, quite cheap for a modern-day helmet. So you’ll get enough head protection, but you may find yourself sweating just a bit more. In any case, the FL1 is a perfect helmet for beginners or cyclists on a budget.

But its air ventilation system is something else — the design will keep you cool, no matter the weather. How they did it is a mystery, but the Avex feels amazing on your head. Consider picking up the Avex if you’re looking for a super budget helmet — it’s not even $50. How can they sell something this good for so cheap?
