Speed Pedelec Helmets2
Speed Pedelec bicycle helmets are a little tougher than regular helmets. The reason for that is simple: a speed pedelec or 45 kph e-bike allows you to go considerably faster than a regular bike would. These new helmets offer more protection at the back of the head and temples, and have been specifically designed to be used with Speed Pedelecs and other high-speed bikes such as e-bikes.

What helmet do I need for a speed pedelec?
You cannot use just any bicycle helmet on a speed pedelec. This is because a speed pedelec helmet must meet certain requirements. The helmet must comply with the NTA 8776 standard, meaning it protects the head, is suitable for use during physical exertion and does not impede hearing. In addition, a helmet for use on the speed pedelec must be made to provide more protection for the back of your head and your temples. This is because the impact of a fall due to the high speed is a lot higher than on a normal bike. It is therefore important to protect these parts of your head extra well.

A helmet for the speed pedelec provides you more protection than a normal helmet, mainly to the back of your head and your temples. You can also choose to buy a speed pedelec helmet with a visor.
