If your Giant helmet is damaged from a cycling accident, Giant will offer a replacement helmet if the accident and claim is made within the first year of purchase. Giant will aim to provide a free helmet which is either like for like, or the latest equivalent model. Should neither be available, Giant will provide a store credit based on the retail price of your original Giant helmet purchase.

Choosing the right bicycle helmet

While wearing a helmet is not a legal requirement in the UK, it’s something we would advise to any riders to reduce the chance of serious injury should an accident occur. There are many different types of helmets on the market which we’ll outline below, however it's worth noting that all helmets sold in the EU have to conform to the same safety standards, so the main differences are features like weight, aesthetics and fit type.

Helmet selection

Road Helmets: Compact, lightweight and well ventilated. The more advanced helmets contain the Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) which offer more protection to the brain. The retention system should be easy to adjust and sit comfortably on your head.

Off-Road Helmets: Just like road helmets, the off-road helmet is designed to be compact, lightweight and well ventilated. The only difference is that off-road helmets cover much more of the head, sitting lower at the back and covering the side of the head, as well as having a visor at the front. This is because off-road cycling covers much more slippery downhill terrain meaning that you are much more likely to fall from your bike, therefore needing more protection.

Leisure Helmets: There is no specific helmet designed for the leisure/commuter rider, however most typically use a road bike helmet. A great helmet choice for a commuter would be a helmet with the mounting bracket used to fit lights so that you are always visible whilst on the road.

Kids Helmets: Helmets designed for kids tend to vary too depending on the age group the helmet is aimed at. For example, helmets designed for younger children will likely sit lower on the head and offer more protection around the rear than those designed for slightly older children.
