Fashionable and recyclable. The bicycle helmets of the British brand 
dashel are made from recycled plastic and are recycled after use. In four matt colors, the Urban Cycle Helmet stylishly complements the bike outfit and protects the head.

With its 380 grams, the helmet sits barely noticeable on the head. With the included padding, the helmet can be ideally adapted to your own head size. There is a loop on the back of the helmet to which an additional rear light can be attached. A jute bag is included for the transport of the helmet.

If you register your helmet with the manufacturer, you can send it back to the UK after an accident. The helmet shell is then ground there and processed into a new helmet. Dashel takes care of shipping costs within the UK and also gives a discount on the next helmet. As this helmet shows, sustainability and style go very well together. The price is around 90 euros.

How to pick the right size +

Measuring and fitting

Measuring your head

Measure the widest part around your head – this is usually approx. 1cm above your ears. If you don’t have a flexible tape measure just use a piece of string or ribbon and find a ruler.

The 2 models of Dashel helmets come in different sizes:


Dashel Cycle Helmet 
Small (S): 54-56cm
Medium (M): 57-59cm
Large (L): 60-62cm

Carbon Fibre Edition
Small (S): 54cm - 56cm
Medium (M): 57cm - 58.5cm 
Large (L): 59cm - 61cm

How to Fit your Helmet

Place the helmet on your head, push it down ensuring it sits level 1-2 cm above your eyebrows and does not tilt too far backwards or forwards. The helmet should feel snug but not constricting. Use the comfort pads to adapt it to your size

Tighten the chin strap, the 'Y' shape should fit just below your ears. The Fidlock clasp must sit under the chin and not on the jawbone.

Make sure the strap feels comfortable but secure. You should not be able to get more than one finger between your chin and the strap.

How to Achieve the Perfect fit

Also included with your purchase is a set of black 10mm wide pads. The silver pads already in your helmet are just 5mm thick. For a tailor made fit, mix and match according to whether your head is narrow, high, round or
narrow.

The pads are just to make the helmet as comfortable as possible. They do
not contribute to the performance of your helmet in a crash, if you wish to
remove some completely then do so.

Remember a cycle helmet can only protect you it if fits properly. The helmet should feel snug but not constricting and sit level 1-2 cm above your eyebrows. Do not tilt it too far backwards or forwards. The Fidlock clasp
must sit under the chin and not on the jawbone. You should not be able to get more than one finger between your chin and the strap.
