How many horror stories have you heard about online dating? A person can be anyone they want online but once you meet them in person, the reality often does not meet expectation and you realize you just wasted time communicating with a person who is completely wrong for you. Shopping for helmets online is kind of like online dating – the helmet is that guy or that chick that puts up a photoshopped photo of themselves on their dating profile along with meaningless stats about themselves and you have no idea if there is a true connection.
Sure, you can read a million articles about how a certain helmet fits, how to measure your head, how to tell what shape your head is , blah blah blah but without physically trying a helmet on, I promise you’ll never get the right fit. Here are just a few things that make it impossible to buy the right helmet online:
So if you own a helmet you love and it was lost or stolen, by all means feel free to buy a replacement online. But if you are buying your first helmet or a new model, do yourself a favor and buy one at your local shop. Everyone sells helmets for the same price, you are not getting any benefit from buying it online.
