• I plan to cycle home while absolutely cunted tonight. Will let you know how it goes.

  • Better safe than sorry

  • I only ride my bike drunk and helmetless, never not done me no harmings.

  • That's pretty shit. Assume someone thought they'd bring over the fag packets idea?

  • Watch the our new video where Ian tells us about the traumatic brain injury he suffered after being hit by an HGV. He wasn't wearing a helmet. Now, three years later, he wants to tell his story to make sure you think twice.

  • Doesn't actually state that the helmets would or even could have prevented any of the injuries depicted on the helmets and implying these helmets can protect from things they aren't designed to.

  • That video and those helmets make me irrationally angry. It's every conversation about not wearing a helmet that I've ever had turned into a graphic.
    I'm assuming Endura/Pentland, aren't worried about more people cycling, and are more concerned with more cyclists wearing helmets, preferably their helmets.

    Or they've just made this for the ranty cyclists reaction to it. Cycling clickbait in helmet form.

  • Honest question: what’s the difference in crash performance between motorcycle and pedal cycle helmets? Motorcycle helmets do work, no?

  • Motorcycle helmets do work, no?

    Same answer as bicycle helmets; they have some benefit in some situations. The main difference is that the very strong, hard, continuous shell and greater coverage provides much better protection against abrasion and intrusion. The protection against shock deceleration is only slightly better, essentially in proportion to the greater distance from the shell to the skull.

    If you crash like a racer, sliding and tumbling over a fairly flat surface without coming to a sudden stop, motorcycle helmets will usually spare you completely from a lot of minor head and face injuries.
