Helmets & Headlights

Bike Helmets

Be Seen. Be Safe.

  • In the U.S., 600 accidents annually result in deaths directly linked to head trauma.
  • Nearly 50% of bicycle fatalities occur after dark.
  • Minnesota statute requires all cyclists to illuminate their bikes after dark. A white front light must be visible from a distance of 500 ft. with a red reflector on the rear. For better visibility, use a red light on the rear in addition to the reflector.
