Who should wear them?
The Helmet Angel shells are designed for Cyclists of all ages and stages, everywhere! They clip onto adult helmets and child helmets very easily, and one size fits all.
Commuters and Road Cyclists: By wearing the shells on a daily commute, or on a weekend cycle into the hills, you will hear traffic noise much more easily. Our fluorescent yellow ‘Solar’ shells and luminous white ‘Aurora’ shells also help you to be seen more easily at dawn, dusk and at night.
Cycling Teams: Club members who are out cycling together will more easily hear commands from team-mates, and hear approaching competitors coming much more quickly! As well as keeping you safe on the road, the shells are also ideal for keeping your ears warm when racing at speed.
Parents/Family/Groups: Cycling together as a family can be tricky – it is hard to keep everyone together! The Helmet Angel shells will help the whole group hear better on the move, so that you can more easily share commands and warnings with each other more effectively, and talk to each other on the move.
Children: Helmet Angel shells fitted securely to a child’s existing safety helmet will enable them to hear more easily and be aware of everything around them when they are out riding on their own or with friends.
“We used the Helmet Angel shells on the three-day 137 mile Coast-to-Coast cycle route, and they were absolutely excellent.
“The shells and their padding are so lightweight and comfortable, you very quickly forget they are there, and they are also very stable – once we’d set them in position, they didn’t move at all.
“The use of the product was also really good. We found that the shells were very effective in mitigating wind noise and helping us to detect where traffic was coming from much more easily than if we hadn’t been wearing them. Even cycling at 30-40mph downhill, we could all hear perfectly.
“The shells provided excellent protection from the elements, which was particularly useful in the driving rain and when we went through a hailstorm up on the moors above Allenheads. We were very grateful for the shells in protecting us from the elements and high winds, and they kept us much warmer when the air turned cold, too.
I am really pleased with the shells. They were so beneficial for hearing traffic and communicating with the other riders, I would recommend them to everyone. I will definitely be keeping them on my helmet from now on.”
