Who's Behind It?

Bern was founded in 2004 by Dennis Leedom - a passionate cyclist, snowboarder and skier who was acutely aware of the need to protect his head. As a multi-sport fanatic, he launched Bern to create helmets that would not only provide more safety but also serve more than one discipline.

Since then, Bern has grown to become one of the most popular makers of cycling helmets in the world. Working with a specialist design team, the results have become iconic. Bern believe they’ve ‘driven the evolution of head protection’ and we’re inclined to agree. We love the lightweight results that meet rigorous safety standards whilst always exuding cycling style and sophistication.

Since 2014, Bern’s colourful helmets have come with a fully adjustable sizing mechanism, and their design team have created increasing numbers of products shaped specifically for women that incorporate their flip visor system. Go forth and protect your head stylishly with one of these lids!

  1. Very nice, good fit

    Review by fififrog

    My previous helmet was a Giro; I had to buy a "junior" one because the normal ladies ones felt too big in the store. I have some very steep hills on my commute, and going downhill, it always felt like it was being lifted off my head, it just didn't sit securely. This one is a totally different fit - it feels like it is encasing your head, it is completely secure, and it does not fly off my head as I whizz downhill. The visor is also very nice; I haven't been squinting when it's bright. I've already had several positive comments on it and I've only had it a few days. The only slight imperfection is that it doesn't go with my Georgia In Dublin "Mondrian"-style reflective vest at all!

    Please velovixen, will you stock the winter liners - that would be fab :-)
