Bicycle helmet the most solid protective barrier for life in cycling. Falling during riding can cause great damage to the head. Even if the rider is riding at a lower speed along a smoothly sloped bicycle path, the safety issue cannot be ignored.

The reason for wearing a cycling helmet is simple and important-to protect the head and reduce injuries. Relevant data show that in more than 500 cycling deaths each year, 75% of the deaths are caused by fatal head injuries. Medical research has found that wearing a helmet while riding a bicycle can prevent 85% of head injuries and greatly reduce the degree of injury and accident mortality. Half-face riding helmets are divided into road-specific (no brim), road and mountain dual-use (with detachable brim) and so on.

The working principle of the bicycle helmet is to play a protective role by absorbing the impact of the collision. In other words, every cycling helmet has a foam inner layer. In the event of an accident, the foam inner layer will cushion the collision to reduce accident damage. Traditionally, many riding helmets are made of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) materials. Once the EPS foam is crushed and deformed in an accident, it cannot be recovered and used again. In addition, there are helmets with an inner layer made of EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) foam. Although EPP foam can be used again after being hit, its strength in absorbing impact is far less than EPS foam. Therefore, after years of research and improvement. A new type of multi-protective foam Tau Re Up that combines EPS and EPU (polyurethane) was born. Not only that, carbon fiber is used in many riding helmets to reduce the weight of the helmet.
