Best e-bike helmets 2024

The best e-bike helmets aren't a must-have accessory, but they are a great thing to have when riding electric bikes. The reason for that is e-bikes travel faster and weigh more, creating higher forces and more momentum in the event of a crash. This is especially true in the US where e-bikes can legally travel up to 28mph.
