Choosing the Right Bike Helmet
At EcoMove, all our helmets meet rigorous European safety standards. Whilst nearly all helmets are built the same, there are some key differences that you should look out for when choosing the right helmet for you.
All helmets consist of an outer shell, an inner padded liner and extra padding for comfort. But it’s important to understand the benefits each type offers and what features are going to be best suited to your type of ride.
Types of Helmet
Traditional Cycle Helmets
Traditional cycle helmets are made with aerodynamics and ventilation in mind. Lightweight and designed with air holes to stop your head from overheating, these helmets deliver comfort as well as protection.
Some Cycle helmets, such as those designed for mountain bike riding, come with a visor and extra coverage on the back of the head. At EcoMove we stock a variety of traditional cycle helmets.
Urban / Skate Helmets
These helmets have a distinctive shape and a little extra thickness which means they can handle multiple impacts without wearing out too quickly.
A Common choice for those who ride BMX bikes or enjoy skating, however the urban style is slick and stylish making it incredibly popular amongst electric and traditional cyclists too.
Open Face Moped Helmets
Our open face helmets are available in a wide range of colours, styles and sizes. We also stock a range of open face helmets with a visor, so there’s no need to invest in riding goggles.
Open face helmets offer style as well as safety, so they’re a great choice for leisure riders.
Full Face Moped Helmets
Full face helmets offer complete facial and skull protection while riding. Available in a wide range of styles and colours, these are the ideal helmet for those looking for full protection.
At EcoMove we stock a large range of full face helmets, suited to all types of rider.
If you’re unsure which helmet is best suited to you, then please stop in-store and take a look at our stock, try on a few and find your perfect match. Our team of dedicated staff will be able to advise you on the most suitable helmets and answer any questions you may have.
Choosing The Right Helmet Size.
It’s important to buy a helmet that is comfortable and fits properly. At EcoMove all of our helmets are adjustable in size so finding the perfect fit couldn't be easier.
To find your size, simply take a tape measure and measure the circumference of your head about two finger widths above your eyebrows.
If you’re falling in-between two sizes, your best option is probably to pop into store and try both sizes on. When the helmet is on, it should feel snug but digging into the skull.
Caring for you bike helmet
Bike helmets can be easily cleaned by washing it in mild soap and water, rinsing thoroughly, and air drying. There is no need for any special maintenance or care beyond this.
If your helmet is damaged in any way, you should look to finding a replacement to ensure that you remain safe while you ride.

I went in to look for a part for a ebike, even though they didn't have it, the mechanic Allen was kind enough to help with what I was trying to fix, putting on a new pair of handle bar grips and checked it over. Everyone else in the shop super friendly and helpful. If I get the chance to upgrade I will be coming to eco move. 10/10

I dropped by the store on the 12th July with my punctured Pure Air Pro, as Pure Electric said they were too busy until the 20th July! I can not thank the two guys enough for being so kind. I feel so emotional and grateful at your words of wisdom and that you offered so much when I gave nothing back. You didn't put the cash first and even though I did not end up spending a penny with you, you offered an e-scooter until I sorted my problem out with Pure Electrics. I stood my ground as you advised and took my e-scooter back to the Pure store and within a couple of hours I had a brand new tyre and inner tube at no cost, as the item was only 3 days old. I'm really sorry I didn't purchase from you because aftercare is as important as the purchase. I can sense your enthusiasm and commitment and I feel people should know to visit and have their faith restored in humanity. You were very positive, sympathetic and supportive when it really mattered. Thank you both. Donna

All the staff at EcoMove in Bristol are absolutely fantastic! At 62 and after 40 years of not having cycled, they were patient, kind and spent a great deal of time teaching me how to ride an E-bike. They helped me with the accessories I needed, they helped me try out the bike for size in the boot of my car. When an accessory broke they replaced it instantly. I had been to other E-bike shops but none came anywhere near the help, advice and friendly attitude that I got from every member of staff at EcoMove. I cannot praise them highly enough!!

One of (if not the actual) very best customer service experiences I've ever had. Especially as a first-time vehicle buyer, they've been beyond helpful, friendly, polite, even funny, and have answered all my questions clearly that I've left overnight as soon as they open at 9am. I can't recommend these guys highly enough. I wish more businesses were ran like this, and had as friendly, genuinely caring staff, whether big or small.

Fantastic , friendly service. Purchased my electric Haibike from Ecomove. So lovely to buy from a shop with friendly, knowledgable but non-pushy staff. Great to be able to test drive at the store.Thrilled with my bike & it makes tackling the steep hills around Bath so easy. Would highly recommend Ecomove.
