Responsible cyclists know the importance of bicycle helmets, and now it's easy to find a bike helmet with the right fit for you at Academy Sports + Outdoors. Most helmets for biking feature air vents for breathability so your head stays cool, and some feature a visor to shield your eyes from the sun. If you cycle in low-light conditions, pick a bike helmet that features safety lights or high-impact reflectors so you remain visible to pedestrians, drivers and other cyclists. Check out the assortment of lights and reflectors for your bike as well.
As a parent, you do everything you can to keep your children safe while allowing them the freedom to enjoy life. That can be a difficult line to walk, but not when it comes to bicycling, since you can pick out a kids' bike helmet at Academy Sports + Outdoors. You'll find a helmet for your child to love with exciting, colorful designs and favorite characters. Pick a helmet with interior padding for comfort, buckles that won't pinch your little one's skin and vents that offer breathability.
When a child is new to biking, spills happen, but that doesn't need to lead to bandages and tears if your little one is protected with a set of pads and gloves. Generally displaying beloved characters or bright colors, this protective gear will be associated with a fun time. Many of the sets include matching pairs of knee pads, elbow pads and gloves, so easily skinned areas are covered by high-impact skid guards.
