Update: Bontrager Quantum MIPS won this week’s Co-Op!

Even if you don’t own a bike (or, more likely, you own one but never actually use it), the advent of bike sharing and electric scooter apps have pushed helmets up many a “I should buy this at some point” lists. And rightly so!

You only get one head, so you really want to invest in a good helmet. So what should first time helmet buyers be on the lookout for? What features and brands stand out? What’s the best helmet? Check out the rules below, then scoot on down to the comments to nominate your pick.

1) Your nomination should contain the name of a specific helmet, why you think it’s the best, a link where it can be purchased, and an image.

2) You can nominate multiple products, but please put each one in a separate comment.

3) Vote by starring someone else’s nomination.

4) Please do not duplicate nominations.
