We’ve put together a list of the best ebike helmets because ebikes are not exactly the same as other types of bikes. When you find yourself riding one of the best electric bikes on the market you’ll soon realise that you have different needs. On the one hand, there are the safety considerations that come with ebikes. Riding an ebike means higher average speeds and a heavier bike, and more speed and more weight mean more energy to handle in the event of an accident. 

There are also practical, wearability considerations as well. Most electric bike helmets are similar to our list of the best commuter helmets but when you don’t have to work as hard for the speed you can travel, that changes things a bit. You’ll get up to speed faster and travel farther at higher speeds so you might consider features like built-in visors to keep debris from your eyes, and integrated lighting to allow drivers to see you approaching from further away. There are also different considerations for ventilation when you have to work less.
